Tom Cruise new movie from Paramount Pics is being filmed in my area. It's called 'The War of the Worlds'. Anyone know about this film and who else is starring in it? If Angelina Jolie is in it, so help me God I'll probably end up locked up in jail by next summer.

Just thought I'd share, that's pretty interesting :bounce:

From my local News Channel WDBJ7:)

Tom Cruise has been spotted yet again in Rockbridge County.. this time in just the past week and half.

(------------)

Some of the scenes from the actors latest movie 'The War of the Worlds" will be shot in the county- possibly on this farm on Decatur Road.

It's a remake of the film about a Martian invasion of earth.

Cruise apparently spent the night at a private inn recently-

People from paramount studios have also inquired about lodging in the area.

Cruise and Director Steven Spielberg were in town about six weeks ago as well- spotted at the Lexington Dairy Queen where Cruise ordered a chocolate cone.

SHERYL WAGNER/ROCKBRIDGE TOURISM MARKETING DIR.; THEY'RE BIG NAME HOLLYWOOD STARS AND THEY'VE BEEN IN ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY IT'S NEAT AND KIND OF COOL.

Paramount people have also inquired about warehouse space for props and catering services for the crew.

The scenes will be shot sometime next month.. Filming is expected to take about a week. The movie is also being shot in New Jersey and Upstate New York. It's due out next June.

He's OK, he is a pretty boy... but I'd prefer Angie. :rolleyes:

I guess next month, since I'll be in that area Christmas shopping I could go stalk some film crews. Maybe they give me a part in the movie, it leads to fame, and getting me out of this hell hole.... and ultimately leads me into getting cast along side Angelina in a future flick. :hehehe:

Yes, yes, yessssssssssssssssssssss, now my evil plot to take over the world is coming to me. :devil:

I was shocked to hear they'd film anything around here. But it's good news... Maybe this just leads to more stuff being shot here. I know for a fact it would have to be cheaper to film here than anywhere else.

After they wrap up in Jersey he's coming to Roanoke, VA. Supposed to start in December. I think they've scouted there, and that's where all these people have seen him. I sure wish they'd film something else with another major star around here. :o
