CHICAGO – If you’ve ever wondered what the difference is between a director and a producer, let “47 Ronin” explain how the hierarchy of creativity hinders the evolution of even the most straightforward-sounding pitches. “47 Ronin” is the type of samurai movie set in Japan that features native actors speaking only English, while Keanu Reeves stars as an outsider clearly plunked into the picture for stateside star power.
Vince Vaughn filming TV pilot on Wilson Avenue in Chicago's Uptown!
Vince Vaughn is filming a currently unknown TV pilot in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood, according to Uptown Update:
I asked the questions you guys want to know! They’re doing a shooting for a television pilot. Seems as though the big “V” was here a few days before scoping out the place.
I asked what kind of show and they couldn’t give me details, but the guy who had the ladder and removed my sign told me “it’s supposed to look shitty in the picture”. Wow. That’s a blow. So, they use Wilson Avenue for that purpose? Hmmmm… Anyway, [Vince Vaughn and] the guys are here until Friday (March 12, 2010) shooting.
