Channing Tatum begins filming ‘Foxcatcher’ in Pittsburgh this Fall, Extras with wrestling experience needed

Back in May we reported there was a possibility of Channing Tatum filming his next movie, Foxcatcher, in Pittsburgh, and now a recent casting call seems to confirm the news.

Foxcatcher follows John du Pont, the great-great-grandson of E.I. du Pont who founded the chemical company. In January 1996, John shot and killed David Schultz, a 1984 gold medal winner who lived at the state-of-the-art Foxcatcher National Training Center on the 800-acre du Pont property in Newtown Square, Pa.

Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo will also star in the movie, with filming expected to begin next month.

In preparation for his role, Channing has been in training with a wrestling coach during breaks from his current project, White House Down.

Now, the film’s casting director is looking for other young men in the Pittsburgh area with wrestling experience too.

If you have any scoop about where Foxcatcher is filming in Pittsburgh, let us know about it via email at olv@onlocationvacations.com, or in a comment below! In the past our Pittsburgh fans have been able to keep each other up-to-date with all of the latest filming locations via our comment threads, hopefully we can do the same here!

Here are all of the details for this weekend’s casting call for wrestlers:

WRESTLERS NEEDED FOR MOVIE FILMING IN PITTSBURGH

WRESTLING AUDITIONS

SEPTEMBER 15, 2012

Canon McMillan High School, Canonsburg PA

Must register in advance to get details (see below)

Filming dates: October 2012 – January 2013

Bennett Miller, Oscar nominated Director of “Moneyball,” is in town casting a movie about Olympic Gold Medalist wrestlers, Dave and Mark Schultz.To ensure an authentic depiction of the sport and community we want to cast as many REAL wrestlers, coaches, referees, trainers, scorekeepers, and committee members as possible. This casting session will not just be for extras. There will be the opportunity to be upgraded to speaking roles.

Wrestling choreography and consulting will be provided by John Giura (2 time World Cup Champion, 3 time NCAA All-American), and Jesse Jantzen, (Collegiate National Champion and 4 time state champion).

To be considered please email WrestlingExtras@gmail.com for details. Casting opportunities for general extras, and wrestling fans are also being sought at this time. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Thanks to Niki for the head’s up!

Cindy,
I live in Bellaire, Ohio. I was wondering if you could give me any information at all as to when
they will start filming? Also, do you know if Channing will be there, when, etc.?
I know this is asking alot but my niece and I are wanting to drive there to try to catch a
glimpse, (smile) of him. This is the closest we will ever get to try and see him, autograph, photo,
whatever we can get.
Whatever you can help me with would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Sharon

and where for the filming and what stars will actually be there. If I hear anything, I will
share that with you.

Again, thank you

The entire productions company is located at the bottom of Rodi Rd in Penn Hills above the Comfort Inn in the white Vocollect Building. They are shooting scenes (likely wrestling) in basement and the Haddad trucks are on site. Director has been on site many times as well as casting by Donna Bellajac.
No doubt main talent has been there or will be there soon.

They also will be filming at the Mellon Estate in Ligonier.

18 Christine October 4, 2012 at 9:01 pm

Thanks for the info Greg but are you sure it is for Foxcatcher? A casting call for stand ins just went out and the mot likely wouldn’t start shooting w/out stand- ins..

Reply

19 Christine October 4, 2012 at 9:10 pm

just checked the start date the production co has listed and it is October 15, could they just be setting up maybe at that location? I don’t think filming has started yet…

The white building location is actually the administrative offices and art department. It’s a business office with other companies in the building. They do cast hiring here. No filming.

have to head back to work on Wed. :(
You don’t know where any of them are staying at do you? Or even if Channing is there?
I heard he was in Pitt Sat. night. Just need to get a photo for my daugher. She’s driving me crazy :)

I don’t even know how to get to Rodi Road but I guess I’ll find out shortly. Any infor before 5pm

Sharon,
I agree with Catching.. You should probably wait a few days for reliable info and see if the stars are even willling to meet up with fans (or have the time in their schedule) before you travel here.

The best way to get info about stars filming around an area is via twitter. Do you or your neice have a twitter account? You should follow:

Thank Niki for the info. Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you. I work all week

With so much filming taking place in Sewickley, and Channing being spotted in Sewickley – I would guess the Doubletree by the airport. That way they can fly in and out for the weekend. Just a guess.

Some radio stations that might give location info are 96.1 KISS FM & STAR 100.7. I think 96.1 gave location info for Abduction…not sure. (@961KISS & @StarPittsburgh on twitter)

I heard they will be possibly filming some scenes at Washington & Jefferson college at some point.

Also, for those on twitter, Channing Tatum (@channingtatum), Mark Ruffalo (@MRuff221), and Steve Carell (@SteveCarell) are all on twitter and verified.

I was searching on twitter. Mark R. told some girl that Vanessa Redgrave is in Foxcatcher!

Sharon,
I think you will be better off looking for the Milton estate if you want to see the actors. They will spend more hours filming (12-16) than they are off. Look for yellow signs with black writing to find your way to the set, base camp, crew parking, etc. They might have initials for Fair Hill project (the fake name for this movie), Foxcatcher, or something else; FHP, FOX, etc.

Dot’s was being prepped last night around 6pm, and there are cones/parking restriction signs in the surrounding areas that all say Fair Hill Project from 10/30 til 12:01am on 11/3 (I’m assuming this means they’ll finish there Friday night then?). I haven’t heard anything about Walnut St. I’ve also been told that the trailers are set up at the Legion.

I heard a rumor that he was going to be at Patty’s Pasticceria on Lincoln Way in White Oak at 4pm today (10/31) because someone I went to high school with is an EMT in the area and they posted this on twitter. I have no idea if this is actually true, because I don’t know why there would be a “scheduled appearance,” especially posted on twitter, nonetheless. But who knows, really. Any additional info would be greatly appreciated! I’m a local, as McKeesport is my hometown, so I’ll post anything else I hear.

The restrictions are only for 8am-6pm. I drove by last night and it looked kind of like they were packing up for the day around 7ish. There had been a crowd there earlier in the day, but they had dispersed by then. I haven’t heard whether anyone has seen him in the area yet, or if he’s been out anywhere.

Great. Would love to see a pic. Did she say if she new where they were staying at? We live about 1hr or so away. We are trying to get up there in the evening because we work but
would have a better chance of getting a pic if we knew that. We don’t know the area that well, and hate to drive around looking for something we have no clue as to where it’s at.
Keep me posted and thanks for the info.

LOVING all of the updates!!! Thanks everyone for posting for us all to see! I am only about 35-40 minutes away from there and work as well and would love to go up in the evening sometime. Hoping to get a half day in the next couple weeks and find him then! But since I’m so close all info for the evenings would be much appreciated! :)

LoL! I am from Washington County… Work in the actual city of Washington so from here its about that long. Even from my house it would only add an extra 15 min if that. It kills me daily to know he is sooo close but I am not there and haven’t tried yet! LoL. I have to admit, I have gone to NYC once a year to see Donnie Wahlberg film Blue Bloods for the past 3 years and have had MAJOR success finding the location/studio and with the hottie Channing Tatum only minimum driving distance from me and I can’t seem to get there! Hahahaha

We talk and talk but haven’t gotten there yet. We had the hotel he was staying at,
had the GPS programmed with the correct address. THEN, the night before, we talked ourselves out of it, is he there, did he leave, etc. etc. LOL

I had no idea that I had so much in common with everyone…I also love Donnie Wahlberg :). And it is killing me to know that Channing Tatum is so close to where I live and I haven’t seen him.

I also work during the day and would only be able to get over there in the evenings. I live outside of Pittsburgh, so it would be over an hour. The drive would be well worth it if I knew where he would be at!

I’m excited to hear that someone did meet him and would love to hear any more information about night filmiing/where he’s staying!

I went to McKeesport today to see him around 2ish. I drove an hour and a half to get there and when were first arrived no one was around. After about 20 mins of talking to security they made us walk to the other side of the street. We waited there for about 15 mins and he pulled right up. The walked him across the street and I got my picture taken with him and Mark Rufflo! It was sooooo awesome!!!! Definitely worth going and be nice to security. Ask yes or no question, haha. They might help you out ;)

Hi Charlotte,

That’s awesome! Were there a lot of people waiting around at set to meet Channing? I know whenever I met Taylor Lautner when he was in town there were so many people, and he would only come out when there were only a couple fans.

Thanks,
Taylor

Reply

126 Niki November 1, 2012 at 9:34 pm

Hi –
I also met Taylor Lautner when he was in town filming Abduction. It didn’t matter if the crowd was big, he would come out to sign autographs whenever his schedule allowed. When he was filming in Mt. Lebanon, he greeted fans every Friday (4 in a row, I think),and other days too, when he could. Also, in Sutersville, he came out to to visit with a huge crowd of fans, over 600. It depends on the filming schedule. Or…maybe they prefer meeting fans off set, like they have mostly been doing for Foxcatcher. At restaurants, stores, etc.

Reply

127 Charlotte November 1, 2012 at 10:13 pm

There were only about 10 or 15 of us that happened to be there at that moment so maybe that’s why he came to take pictures with us. I’m not sure. It was awesome though :)

Charlotte, that is awesome, my daughter and her friend who only lived at the top of the hill next to Dot’s where there yesterday from 10am till 10pm. he walked over to them and they talked to him and got a picture, i am guessing around 230ish or 3. she said he came out when there was less people around. she said it was way better during the day because all the kids were still in school.larger crouds at night but they did see him all evening.the apt. building they were fiming in, my daughters friend and his family lived there and she stayed there before so she was pretty excited.

There are people that have been running around looking for the sets, spending up to 12 hours a day standing in the rain…and the cold waiting for a chance…. it takes time and dedication, and when it comes down to it…. luck

The stars are WORKING…. sometimes they have to stay in character and distractions are not good for them. Schedules can be tight.

Just think about it as if you were at work, when is the best time for you to see people? Beginning of the day….lunch….and at the end of the day.

I’ve seen posts and tweets saying how mad they are that they didn’t get to see him… there just isn’t time to accommodate everyone during a busy schedule…. if you had to work 12 to 18 hours a day would you want to be chased around during your cool-down and relaxation time?

You can use a spoon to dig a ditch, or you can use a shovel. Tracking celebs goes more smoothly if you use the right tools. Patience is one, technology is another. Technology includes cell phones, GPS, this website, Facebook, & Twitter. If you’re not familiar with everything that twitter can do (including mobile notifications-big one), you should put an hour aside to figure it out. Also, regarding patience- when I was checking out Abduction, I knew the base camp site, but didn’t see Taylor until the 4th time I went there. Sometimes luck plays a part too.
& Remember to be respectful of security & their requests.

The set they are filming at today is not right on Rt. 68. It is off a side road and back a secluded private lane. The filming crew trucks are all converged at a parking lot on Rt. 68 a few miles north east of Evans City. The set is at a private home and business, so no real chance of seeing anything or getting close.

No, Amber. That is just where they are parking some of the trucks and auxiliary vehicles. They are filming at VicNor Farm on Harmony Street, but in a secluded private area of the farm. They have security everywhere, and you can’t see the set from anywhere really.

Jon, the gunfire was from a gun-range scene they were shooting today.

Nobody stopped us or anything but that’s because we didn’t go the whole way up, we did a five point turn and left. But there were giant lights and tents and cameras and we probably within feet of channing tatum. Thanks for the tips on here!!

One of the permits allows for the closure of Oliver Avenue, between Smithfield & Grant Streets for feature film work. The street was not planned to be closed (and is not officially), but placement of large support vehicles (panel trucks and other equipment) has made the arrow too narrow for buses to navigate.

Hung out at the Omni for a while today and watched but didn’t see anything exciting. Just lots of crew people and trucks. Lots of PAs and security and people moving equipment. It’s a bad location to catch people since they’re filming inside. And there are so many doors close to the street, it’ll be easy for people to just rush out and into a car. Not the best bet for catching anyone!

Thanks Niki!

I wanted to let you guys we started a forum (again) there is a tab at the top of the page if you guys want to start a Foxcatcher board, it might be easier and you can upload pic and vids there yourselves, we just added it yesterday so you guys would be the first to use it but we tested it like crazy so I am sure it will work well….

Casting call for men Dec. 1st – found the link on Craigslist. I’m sure it’s the same one listed on the Pittsburgh Film Office site:

Side note to anyone reading this thread: I know that most people contributing on here are cool, but some people like to withhold information, because of their theory that the actors won’t come out if there’s a big crowd. I think that’s incredibly catty and immature, especially if you’ve already been able to meet one of them yourself. Let other people get a chance…and not just your friends and family. Pass it forward.

I’ve heard that they’re filming in the Convocation Center at California University of PA this weekend (12/1-12/2) but be warned, the campus police LOVE to ticket people who don’t have university issued parking passes.

This weekend they will definitely be filming Foxcatcher in the locker rooms at the Fitzgerald Field House at the Univ. of Pittsburgh. I saw some rumors on twitter and confirmed it with a friend who works at Pitt.

Also-today “Those Who Kill” is/was filming at an apmt bldg. in Grandview on Mt. Washington (Pittsburgh).

No problem. This is a one way street. Citizens Library is right across the street from Washington and Jefferson College’s Old Main Building. College Street is one block from Main Street. It’s probably best to park downtown or in the parking garage and walk down. The parking garage is on Franklin Street (2 blocks away).

The Peterson Events center is at 3710 Terrace Street in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh. It belongs to the University of Pittsburgh. Most (if not all) of the big MMA tournament/wrestling scenes (with Tom Hardy & Nick Nolte) were shot here too! That was a great movie. Nick Nolte got an Oscar nom for Best Supporting actor.

I don’t see the trucks outside the Peterson. Maybe I’ll try to take a closer look later. Also,…on a possibly related note… the National Aviary in Pittsburgh is closing early, at 3 p.m. today for a “private function”…
John du Pont really liked birds…so maybe…. Well, I just think that everything is a movie filming around Pittsburgh! LOL
Also, the TV series, Those Who Kill is filming in Bellvue.

Does anybody know if it is true that all of the major stars are done filming in Pittsburgh on Foxcatcher ?

Reply

259 Niki January 9, 2013 at 12:17 pm

I think most people are assuming (including me) that the major stars are done filming in Pittsburgh because of the wrap party. Foxcatcher will be filming in Monroeville on Saturday. I think that I originally heard that they would be done filming at some point in January. Here is a link to the 96.1 KISS FM page about the wrap party (with pics):
