Super 8 Location Scouting in Weirton

Thanks to 26062 for posting these images from around Weirton, W.VA of the changes that are going on around town in anticipation of filming of Super 8. There's not a whole lot going on here, but this is just the beginning of the changes this small town is going to see and hopefully we'll have eyes and ears around town capturing all the details on camera for us.

For the hi-res images head on over to the forum. Thanks again 26062, glad you found a way to share them with us.

A Little Town Called Weirton

weirton, w va

Most of you know already that Super 8 has began casting calls and location scouting in Weirton, W. VA so I thought this article would be of some interest. Thanks to John31 for posting it in the comments (and I'm assuming you're the same person that emailed it to me). There's not a whole lot of new information in the article, but since there hasn't been anything new at all in a while I figured it was worthy enough to post.

The article basically talks about how the crews have come to the town to redecorate some of the buildings and obtain blueprints for some of the homes there so they can recreate them back in Hollywood to finish shooting... probably interior shots if I had to guess. Other than that there's not a whole lot of information, but at least it's something for you to read if you're interested. Hopefully now that the ball is starting to roll on the film we'll get some more clues via the viral marketing.

Remember, if you don't want to keep checking back here for new information you can follow us on Twitter and we'll post everytime there's a new article published to the site.
