Thanks to one of our tipsters, @jennifer_celia, we’ve found the first filming location for the highly anticipated movie, Kill Your Darlings.
No Parking signs for filming on Monday, March 19, 2012 are posted all around W 3rd/Bleecker and Sullivan/Thompson in NYC. Though the project name on the signs is simply listedas KYD, we know that it must be for Kill Your Darlings, which was slate to begin filming in “mid-March”.
The thriller focuses on the relationships between Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and Lucien Carr which eventually ends up with them caught up in murder.
Daniel Radcliffe will play Ginsberg, Elizabeth Olsen will play Edie Parker, the wealthy art-student girlfriend of Jack Kerouac, and Jack Huston will play Kerouac. Dane Dehaan rounds out the cast as Carr, a key member of the Beat Generation in the 1940′s.
Michael C. Hall, Ben Foster, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Kyra Sedgwick will co-star.
If you spot Kill Your Darlings filming in NYC or spot any of those KYD signs around, let us know at [email protected]!
UPDATE: Just learned they are filming on 25th, around 8th Ave, in NYC today (March 15) too!
