Six Degrees Of C&EN

As was mentioned in Susan's post, there was a bit of Hollywood in town during the spring meeting. I also happened upon several trailers full of film equipment during a stroll down Decatur street on Tuesday night and thought I'd fill readers in on a secret C&EN connection to the New Orleans movie action. C&EN Senior Correspondent Ann Thayer's brother and sister-in-law have been down in the Big Easy for several months working on "12 Rounds," an action flick being directed by Renny Harlin. Ann's sister-in-law says their crew was shooting "car running shots" through the central business district on Tuesday night, but there are now five other movies filming in town, including one that has made its home base on Decatur. If anyone stopped to ask any of the crews what they're working on, give us a shout in the comments.

  1. Our group was walking through Jackson Square when we saw some filming going on, so of course we got a closer look, and we saw actresses Kathy Bates and Alfre Woodard. After researching on http://www.imdb.com we found that the movie is titled “The Family That Preys” directed by Tyler Perry, who’s worked on things such as “House of Payne” and “Diary of a Mad Black Woman”.

    Just thought I’d add to the movie post!
