Super 8 Principle Photography Begins

Super 8, the movie written and directed by JJ Abrams, has apparently begun judging by the set pictures that Ain't It Cool News has posted. The pictures show the Marland Heights area of Weirton, West Virginia being transformed into 1979 Lillian, Ohio complete with ice cream shop, Arcade (with pin-ball and skee-ball being the prime attractions), middle school and more. Below is the set report and a few select images, with the rest here.

A buddy of mine snagged some pictures from the area where Super 8 begins shooting this the Marland Heights area of Weirton, WV.

Attached are photo's of: The "Lillian Heights Pharmancy" ; "Lillian Heights Post Office" ; Interior shots of the Lillian Heights 7-11 & Post Office (once a Marland Heights Market & Ice Cream Shop) ; Lillian Middle School (once an old Marland Heights Primary School) and some shots of the 70's era buses behind the building ; Arcade from downtown Lillian, OH (actually shot in the older section of Main Street, Weirton, WV) ; Used Car Sales lot in the same vicinity. The last photo is the older area of Weirton, where the Arcade, Used Car Lot and most of the city shots will be taking place downtown.

Filming begins this week in the Marland Heights and there will be night shots around the school area. The casting calls are being sent out between Sept 20th and the end of October so we're hoping that sometime in the next couple weeks we hear something and be a part of Hollywood! Enjoy the photo's, we'll see if we can get some shots of cast or crew in the coming weeks! If ya use this, I'm Cookie and my buddy's name is 3Huck, thanks AICN!
