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.

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).
