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.

  2. Uh huh, yeah the movie takes place in a town called Weirton and the film is shooting at a town called Weirton.

    Anyway, thanks admin for posting, I know it’s been a while since new news came out, but this post is worth it.

    @Admin thanks I guess thinks are starting up again and I did understand about j.j. abrams not Leading the viral so to speak but I couldv’e sworn that J.J. WAS the director/producer for let me in and remakes never really work at least not direct ones anyway but thanks for the new update and once again the viral has to be starting up again soon seeing as theyve staked out Weirton but i had a thought just an idea really since we are unsure whether this a prequel/sequel/remake of another movie I have the Idea of E.T. stuck in my head and its probably wrong but 1. It has to do with teenage-like kids so ya. 2. aliens the first one did so why not 3. They speciffically staked out a school ( hence the frog scene in E.T. ) this could still be wrong it’s just an idea i have ( Lord knows how many I have floating around in the ol’ noggin’ Still, something doesn’t seem right… its probably the fact that when it comes to being on top of HIS movies hes usually a loner ( mainly with directing ) and truthfully I just can’t picture Spielberg using a viral.. IDK personally I’m believing that i’m crazy 🙂

    Just a small FYI…filming was definitely started today in Weirton. I live 20 minutes away and my coworker’s daughter is an extra in the film. The extras aren’t even told the full extent of what the movie is about. I’ll try to post as I find out more info as far as who is starring, etc.

    The film was shot in Weirton, WV. But I don’t believe they get the credit in the movie.
