‘The Hot Flashes’, starring Brooke Shields, spotted filming in Jean Lafitte, LA

Thanks to one of our readers, Ann, we have a bit more information about the shoot for The Hot Flashes which took place in Jean Lafitte, LA on Feb. 17.

They shot several scenes near the Leo Kerner Bridge over Bayou Barataria. And, according to Ann, it looked like the scene featured Brooke Shields, who stars in the movie along with Wanda Sykes and Darryl Hannah, driving in a red convertible MustangĀ  while another actress drove in a gray LTD next to her singing “We Are the Champions” by Queen, really loudly (and badly). Then, the Mustang pulls up and screeches on the brakes. Though Ann’s photos (below) were taken from a distance, you can get a taste of what the scene was like.

On Wednesday, the shoot moves to the Piggly Wiggly in Lafitte.

The Hot Flashes follows a basketball team made up of middle-aged Texas women, all former high school champs, who challenge the current high school girls’ state champs to a series of games to raise money for breast cancer prevention.

The movie is expected to continue filming in Louisiana through March 17. If you spot them filming, let us know about it at [email protected]!

Thanks again to Ann for sharing her photos!


  1. Sort of odd they would film this in Louisiana and yet use signs from Texas for the roads
    One I remember is Farm Road 164 it is inside a sign with the out line of the state of Texas on it and they mentioned having hair done in Waco and having a
    team started in Crawford, Plano and another town
    Waco and Crawford and the town I can’t remember are not far apart and Plano is a town North of Dallas
