WHAT’S FILMING IN PHILADELPHIA is a question I still get in emails and on my blog

MOST LIKELY IT’S THE JAMES L BROOKS, REESE WITHERSPOON, OWEN WILSON, PAUL RUDD & JACK NICHOLSON UNTITLED MOVIE, but earlier named “How Do You Know”

Last week these notices started popping up in my Fairmount neighborhood
The James L Brooks movie was setting up down the street at 1913 Green Street.
It’s my understanding that this was Paul Rudd’s house and there’s a pivotal scene that occurs here with his soon to be ex-girlfriend. At first I thought the girlfriend had a child, but later I learned the kid was Paul Rudd’s and he was just visiting for the day.
A nice crowd gathered to watch the going ons
Finally after 2 hrs Paul Rudd emerged from the house. His over protective security guard opened up an umbrella to protect his image? But in her defense this is the same security guard that protects Owen Wilson and doesn’t realize Paul Rudd is a great guy to his fans.
He told the security to put the umbrella away, and crossed the street to visit with his fans.As he walked away he asked us paps to not release photos of his kid. No problem, especially for me, I didn’t take any snaps of jr.Thursday the production moved into Center City
at the Phoenix Apartments. This is the Ballroom Floor, I’ve been up here, it’s chill. Now I hear this is Owen Wilson’s place, but Owen is not in town this week, so maybe it’s Paul’s character’s new place of residence.
Later today the production moves to the Rittenhouse House Square area, specifically near the old WaWa. Filming will continue into the night. I hear that Reese Witherspoon, and Owen Wilson will be back in town to film these scenes today, but I highly doubt it, they don’t work weekends or holidays because they would have to pay OT to the Union folks, so I hear they avoid those hours. Have a nice weekend.
