Chicago Filming Updates: ‘Boss’ casting extras, ‘Relanxious’ filming this summer, and more!

As the weather is warming up in Chicago, so is the filming scene.

According to The New York Daily News, real-life couple Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis have signed on to co-star in Relanxious.

In the comedy, Wilde will play a woman plagued by anxieties who falls in love with an agoraphobic man (Sudeikis). Fred Armisen and Brie Larson will round out the cast. Relanxious will begin filming in Chicago this summer.

But, locals don’t have to wait ’til summer to see stars in the Windy City.

According to Atmosphere Casting’s Facebook Page , The critically-acclaimed Starz series Boss has begun production on their second season in and around Chicago.

Their most recent post notes they will be filming in Romeoville, IL on Wednesday, March 21. The casting company is currently accepting applicants interested in being background actors, but be sure to read all of the directions carefully before submitting. You can find the details HERE.

There are also two pilots shooting in Chicago this month, Chicago Fire, a new show from Law and Order creator Dick Wolf, and the Untitled Sony Pictures Television Pilot starring Jordana Spiro.

Of course, the big entertainment news in Chicago this week has been Steve Harvey’s announcement that he plans to film his upcoming talk show in Chicago, just as rumors Rosie O’Donnell is heading back to New York heat up.
