AVANCE has a new GREEN Door and Hot Wheels to film in Philadelphia

So sad to hear about actor Paul Walker’s untimely passing. He was an intregal party of the Fast and Furious movie franchise, which was filming sequel #7 in Atlanta right now.  For years other movie production companies have wanted to compete or topple that franchise, and the movie “Hot Wheels” has been hot on it’s heels to do so. Just last month the movie was attached to director/stunt man Simon Crane. As I’ve reported in the past, there are two movies in the works to film here in Philly. One of them is Hot Wheels, which is set in Illinois, and sounds like it’s going to have a lot of outdoors filming. Here’s a little info on the Hot Wheels movie, I don’t think you’ll find anything about it being attached to Philly yet as that came from a tipster or three a few months back: 

The former Le Bec Fin at 1523 Walnut Street I hear is scheduled to open Friday, December 6 under new ownership and name: Avance. Two-star Michelin chef Justin Bogle will be at the helm chef for what promises to be a
progressive American restaurant. (Foobooz has some more info on the eatery)
