CHICAGO – “Drinking Buddies” director Joe Swanberg’s latest release of the same star wattage is “Happy Christmas,” an even lower-fi story than the Olivia Wilde beer comedy, steered even more by the casting that it was able to assemble. However, with this movie Swanberg doesn’t so much worry about having a story that could be confused with a more mainstream romantic comedy if it were to have a bigger budget.
Chicago-filmed 'Wanted' with Angelina Jolie did reshoots on March 15 and 16, 2008
Today is March 23, 2008. “Wanted” is currently slated to release in theaters on June 27, 2008, which is about three months from now.
We just learned that the film, which filmed in part in Chicago and stars Angelina Jolie, James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman, only a week ago (specifically on March 15 and 16, 2008) was doing even more reshoots. How do we know? The following Flickr images (also picked up on /Film) say it all.
They’re still doing additional photography on Wanted? From what I understand Chicago production wrapped in Late August or early September 2007. In February, director Timur Bekmambetov explained in a taped greeting at WonderCon that he could not be there because they are in the middle of filming “additional photography” (ie reshoots).
