“Frank or Francis” May Bring Nic Cage, Jack Black, Steve Carell, and Kevin Kline to Pittsburgh

8 Nov

Kevin Kline, Jack Black, Steve Carell, and Nicolas Cage are reportedly set to star in a new Charlie Kaufman movie, “Frank or Francis,” a musical comedy to be filmed in Pittsburgh, PA.

Kaufman is the genius behind “Being John Malkovich,” “Adaptation,” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.”

“Frank or Francis” follows very busy years in film production in Pittsburgh as of late. This summer, Pittsburgh hosted the Batman movie, “Dark Knight Rises,” and also presently filming in Pittsburgh is “One Shot,” starring Tom Cruise.

The “Frank or Francis” project seems to be all but confirmed, though an official announcement has not yet been made. According to the Pittsburgh Business Times, “New York-based production company Likely Story Inc. has been awarded a $4 million tax credit to shoot “Frank or Francis” in Allegheny County, according to public investment records with the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, which oversees the state’s film tax credit program.”

The movie is set to begin filming in January or February of 2012.

Brad Pitt – Putting the Pitt in Pittsburgh?

22 Oct

Is Pittsburgh big enough for 2 megastars? Becoming the new Hollywood? Not only is Tom Cruise filming in the area but there may be another star in sight.

The gossip mills were churning out some good celebrity sleaze yesterday…

Rumor has it that the one and only Brad Pitt was spotted right here in downtown Pittsburgh.

Allegedly, the handsome superstar actor was seen at both the Fairmont Hotel and in the North Shore.

Thus far, there have been no certain confirmations of this, or sightings today.

Did you see Brad Pitt or do you have any info about his whereabouts or why he’s in Pittsburgh? Finishing up filming a movie, such as World War Z, or visiting for some other reason?

Tweet any sightings or info to @Glitzburgh or leave a comment! We’ll keep you posted…

PS: Pssst….did you know that Sarah Paxton recently wrapped a movie in Pittsburgh, and that hottie Bradley Cooper is filming in Upper Darby, PA?
