Today, we checked out the set of Salt, starring Angelina Jolie, in Albany, NY.
According to IMDb,the movie is about Evelyn Salt (Jolie), a CIA officer who swore an oath to duty, honor, and country. When she is accused by a defector of being a Russian sleeper spy, Salt goes on the run to clear her name and ultimately prove she is a patriot. Using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative, she must elude capture and protect her husband or the world’s most powerful forces will erase any trace of her existence.
They are shooting scenes just off of I-787, Exit 3B in downtown Albany (the exit and surrounding exits are closed). You can see the whole production (including Angie) from the highway. We got a few shots of her as we drove by and then pulled off and parked about a block from the set. We were lucky we came across a PA who pretty lax about the whole thing and let us stand just a few feet away from where they were shooting. Because we were in a parking structure on a roof and she was filming on a truck we were eye level with all the action.
The scene involved Angie hanging onto the roof of a 40 foot shipping container speeding down the highway. Her body double was there too but it looked like she was doing most of today’s stunts herself. We watched them film the scene three times and got some great shots of Angelina in between takes. She looked relaxed and seemed to be having a good time.
They continue filming at the Albany location tomorrow but there is no word on whether Angelina will still be there or not. They filmed scenes last week using only her body double.
It also appears she is staying at the Crown Plaza, Albany. There were buses outside the hotel, which is only a few blocks away from the set, for the cast and crew.
