Last week, filmmaker Michael Moore, a Michigan native, shared his passion for filmmaking in the state with Jimmy Fallon. At least the producers of The Frontier Boys seem to agree. They are currently filming in Michigan and were thrilled when hundreds of locals turned out to fill the stands of the Charlevoix Middle School gym for a scene.

Another movie set to film in Michigan next month, Salvation Boulevard, has added Jennifer Connelly, Greg Kinnear and Marisa Tomeito to the cast which already includes Pierce Brosnan, Ed Harris and Jim Gaffigan.

Jamie Foxx is joining Bruce Willis in Kane & Lynch, the videogame adaptation that’s set to begin production in August.

Scrubs’ star Donald Faison is currently filming the CBS television pilot The Odds in Albuquerque and so far, he’s less than impressed with his stay in New Mexico. Last week, he tweeted, “Fights outside my hotel… Murder capital… Everyhing shuts down at 10pm… I really like Albuquerque!” and, “Not really a lot to do in new Mexico. Every thing shuts at 10pm.” Now, some are calling for the star to step up and give something back to the community. He still has plenty of time to make a donation, Faison will be in town through the 31st.

For once, they can’t blame us! A mob of fans shut down production on The Tourist last week. Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie were filming a scene in Venice, Italy but the, “fandemonium was too overwhelming for security” so the shoot was shut down early. You can see more photos of the pair filming here.
