Apparently the “big bangs” we were warned about last Sunday were just a warm-up for what the Brooklyn Heights Association tells us will come this Sunday: a full-scale shoot of Homeland will take place this Sunday, February 19 from (yes!) 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. (we’re hoping these early and late times are just precautionary) on Livingston and Schermerhorn streets. The BHA gives us this:
For avid viewers of the show, this may be a spoiler, but the scenes will include explosions, smoke, the firing of weapons, and large numbers of uniformed police, military officers, and protesters. There will also be snipers on the roof.
The scene with the explosion wil involve a convoy driving east on Schermerhorn Street counter to normal trafic flow. An exploded and burning SUV will be used in the shot. An explosion with smoke and debris will occur as the presidential motorcade exits a garage.
The City’s permit allows the production company to park on blocks throughout the area: Schermerhorn between Court and Boerum Place; Boerum Place between State and Fulton; State Street between Court and Boerum Place; Court between Livingston and State; Livingston between Court and Boerum Place; and Cadman Plaza West between Tillary and Middagh.
Happy Presidents’ Day weekend!
