The Brad Pitt-produced movie ‘True Story’ is filming in Warwick, NY this week


The new movie True Story, which is being produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company, is currently filming around Cascade Rd and Brady Rd in Warwick, NY. They are also working around Warwick County Park.

The movie is based on a memoir by Michael Finkel, the former New York Times Magazine writer who learned Christian Longo, one of the FBI’s Wanted, had been living under his identity for years. The day after Longo was captured, Finkel was fired for falsifying a story but, just when it seemed his career was over, Longo decided he would only do interviews with Finkel, which gave him a chance to redeem himself.

Jonah Hill is playing Finkel and James Franco has signed on to play Longo. The film will shoot in and around New York City through May 1st. Other locations will include Sparky’s Diner in Garnerville and their home studio, Cine Magic Riverfront Studios, in Brooklyn.

The folks at Winter Green Knoll contacted us last week and told us they had just delivered a 6′ (wood-carved) Grizzly Bear to be part of the Log Cabin set in Warwick. They also said they heard the cabin the portraying a Montana hideaway for the writer in the movie (Finkel). You can check out their work below:

There are also rumors flying around town that Brad Pitt is staying in Warwick for the shoot.

If you spot Brad,  or any of the actors, or see True Story filming, let us know about it at olv@onlocationvacations.com!

UPDATE: Filming will take Place Friday, March 8 – Monday, March 18 (excluding weekends) at a log cabin located at 86 Brady Rd, Warwick. There will also be a driving shot filmed on one of these days in which an actor goes out to the mailbox to get his mail, this will also take place on Brady Rd (and based on the fact that we’ve heard the cabin is suppose to belong to Finkel in the movie, we believe the actor will be Jonah Hill).

    The rumors r a lie. Brad Pitt is in France. As a producer he never goes on location, he sometimes visits, but rarely. He’s not a line producer. He’s does more the work before the film starts shooting. Dede n others r on location.

    Brad is on France for the launch of his and Angelina’s wine. There are pics of him arriving there earlier this week. The launch was extremely successful, all the initial 6000 bottles released sold out in 5 hours earlier today. He may visit this film on location at some point but as the other commenter said usually DDG is on location for Plan B films especially if Brad is not acting in a film.

        Listen we all obviously live in Warwick and have seen him in person instead of a photo taken who really knows when and it’s now Saturday so it’s more the possible to do a promotion in France and be back in NY hours later and Warwick is an hour north of NYC and FYI Warwick has a history in cinematography and famous people… Michael Jackson did a video off of 94 back almost 29 yrs ago, multiple scenes from the movie In & Out are filmed around town even a half mile down my road, Lorraine Braccos sister lives in the maroon house on the right side of Kings Highway heading towards Chester. And now we have Brad Pitt

          My fiancee works for the orange county sheriffs department and they filmed parts of this movie in the orange county jail and my fiancee helped them he had a head set and sat there listening to the director and he opened and closed all the jail cells aas they walked through the jail and filmed.

    I’ve heard a lot of rumors. That brad has eaten here or hung there in Warwick in the last couple days. But I haven’t scene a single photo and for all these people I am heading who saw him…no legit photos has turned up. As for the set…I went to it today and its up a driveway that you can’t see the set from the road. But the signs are everywhere. And as for the camp ( dressings rooms, etc. ) …they were at an ambulance building. Aside from that didn’t really see anything else. Just drove around and wasted gas lol.

    The Toy chest photo def looked Photo Shopped. sorry to say. Real Eyes…. no need to be rude about it.
    That Toy Chest photo is the only photo that has turned up and it does look photo shopped … in fact he has no left arm.
    Warwick is a nice town with lots to do but if Pitt was there , people would have taken photos with cameras or phones and nothing has turned up. I’ll believe it when i see it. Right now its all rumors.

    i had a feeling . if any one is in warwick right now its Jonah Hill … not Franco or Pitts .. the House they are using is supposed to be Hill’s Characters home. i knew Franco wasn’t there. I am still waiting to see the pictures that everyone is claiming.

    My friends have been telling me of Brad sightings in Warwick. I lived there for 20yrs before moving to Charlotte 5 yrs ago. I was wondering what he was filming. Found your site and was happy to know what the movie was and the other stars in it.
    That was not a photo shopped pic of Brad in front of the Toy Chest.
    We have had movie crews in Warwick before.

    By any chance does anyone know if this film also had scenes shot at St. Johns in the Wilderness in Harriman State park. The building across the street was modified with signs and an old gas pump. The building was called Tippe Canoe on the sign and the building had a large Gas sign put on the roof. Yesterday it was all gone when I hiked up there. If this was not related nayone know what was being filmed across the street fromt he church?
