The Russians Were Here!

According to BHB’s Claude Scales, the folks filming around Montague Terrace and Remsen Street last night were a Russian film crew working on Marius BalchunasNo Love in the City.

A blogger named “David” who appears to be a member of the crew is blogging about the production.  There is also some tidbits about their studio rental in Manhattan.

Here’s a casting call notice, in case you were wondering what to expect from this epic:

Russian film NO LOVE IN THE CITY seeks non union MALE extras for Monday 10/13- afternoon into the night, NYC. Pays $60. Men must be willing to be patrons at both a gay strip club, watching men, and a straight strip club, watching women. Must be able to act interested in both!

    At least they didn’t close off EVERY @!#$@!@#$ BLOCK between Clark and Orange and Henry and CH, like @#$#$@# GOSSIP GIRL did! It’s 8:30 on Sunday night and there’s a fleet of tow trucks outside right now to clear the way for yuppie entertainment.

    Water balloons, anyone?

    (Here endeth the rant, I feel better now. Thanks for indulging me.)

    What happens if you’re like many a New Yorker, who parks her car and ignores it until the next time it has to be moved, and in the interim, one of these filming no-parking signs go up, on just a few days’ notice, and her car gets towed?

    Would she be responsible for the towing costs?

    Tim N., waterballoons and raw eggs, I’m all over it! P.S. this stuff is amazingly gross, those prep school gals won’t know what to do with themselves

    BKBS: Dont think there is no towing fee. They are towing the car somewhere to a legal or illegal spot in the neighborhood. I think there is a number on the flyer where to call. If they park your car in an illegal spot, they slap a notice to the traffic cops on your windshield not to ticket your car for the next 48 hours. At least thats what I have seen so far.
