Russo Bros Wanted to Shoot 'Infinity War' in Cleveland

‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Super Bowl Trailer Debuts: Even More Cleveland Fun!

A scene from 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' that came to life
using Cleveland locations, including the Fairview Bridge.
Wow. I mean, wow. Did you catch that new Captain America: The Winter Solider trailer during the Super Bowl? (Way more action than the Seahawks and Broncos provided, that’s for sure.)

This new trailer packs a wallop. I mean, as a film fan in general, you should be excited to catch this flick. As a fan of films made in Cleveland, however, this one’s got it all. And it promises to be big business at the box office.

But we don’t care about that, do we? We just want to see those great shots of Cleveland! Our location run down follows the trailer!



0:21: Our first glimpse of the Winter Soldier (“He’s a ghost,” says Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow), easing down Lakeside Boulevard.

0:44: The Winter Soldier marches down West 3rd as pedestrians run down Lakeside.

The Cleveland Public Library
See the Cleveland Public Library in the new 'Cap 2' trailer. 
0:45: The following scene finds The Winter Soldier firing a magnetic bomb at Nick Fury’s SHIELD SUV. The scene takes place on Superior, headed west, near E. 3rd Street. That’s the Cleveland Public Library on your right.

0:48: The flipping SUV is right near the corner of E. 3rd and Superior. The building in the background is part of the BP Building, I believe.

1:03: We get a little more action from the big car chase filmed on the Shoreway. The Winter Soldier punches through the windshield of a car and rips the steering wheel off the vehicle.

1:12: After we see Robert Redford in his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut, we’re back on the Shoreway for more Winter Solider action.

1:24: I think this scene takes place in the park at the corner of E. 3rd and Lakeside, but I cannot be sure. The location looks correct, but it’s a guess at best.

1:34: A lot of CGI went in to changing the Lorain Road (Fairview) Bridge, seen in this scene, into what’s likely one of the 14th Street Bridges in DC.

1:37: Catch the Black Widow leaping off the Shoreway onto W. 3rd Street – the same street we saw when the trailer opened.

1:39: More fun CGI work here! A car crashes onto W. 3rd and the Black Widow hits the ground. In the background? D.C. What’s usually there? First Energy Stadium.

Filming Captain America: The Winter Solider on the Shoreway
Filmmakers prep this bus, near the Shoreway, for some pyrotechnic action.
See Steve Rogers leap out of the bus in the latest trailer.

1:43: More W. 3rd action, as Steve Rogers leaps out of a bus under fire.

1:45: Shoreway action.

2:09: Lakeside Blvd. near City Hall, I believe. And all that stuff at the end!

If you're anything like me, you can't wait to see this film. Plus, with recent news that Cleveland filmmakers Anthony and Joe Russo may also direct Captain America 3, we might get an encore visit from the Marvel Cinematic Universe crew!

Tina Fey, Jay Roach Bringing Kent State Film '67 Shots' to Ohio

Tina Fey is taking a serious turn, producing 67 Shots, a film about the 1970 Kent State shootings. The movie applied for the Ohio Film Tax Incentive earlier this year and plans to film in and around KSU sometime in 2018.

67 Shots focuses on events that led up to the shooting deaths of four students by Ohio National Guardsmen. The title comes from the numbers of shots those guardsmen fired into the unarmed crowd of protestors.
Fey is producing alongside Jeff Richmond, her husband and a Kent State alum. Jay Roach, best known for the Austin Powers and Meet the Fockers franchises, will helm the project. Roach is making more socially and politically aware films at this stage in his career, including Trumbo and Game Change.
The film is based on the book 67 Shots: Kent State and the End of American Innocence and is adapted by award-winning playwright Stephen Belber. Fey and Richmond’s production company, Little Stranger, will join Shivani Rawat’s ShivHans Pictures and Michelle Graham’s Everyman…

'Walking Dead' star Emily Kinney joins 'Anhedonia' cast

Emily Kinney, perhaps best known for her role as Beth Greene on AMC’s The Walking Dead, is joining Anhedonia, the new indie feature from Cleveland’s Eric Swinderman and Carmen DeFranco.

Kinney got her start on stage, with roles in Spring Awakening and August: Osage County, before transitioning to guest roles on television and a star turn as Emily on Showtime’s The Big C.

Her breakout role would come as Beth Greene, Maggie Greene’s little sister, on The Walking Dead. Kinney became a fan favorite during a series of dramatic episodes in the series’ fourth season when Kinney’s Greene bonded with fellow survivor Daryl Dixon, played by Norman Reedus.

Anhedonia co-stars Breckin Meyer and Giselle Eisenberg.

"To have the opportunity to work with such an amazing actress like Emily is beyond exciting,” says Swinderman. “It's also very exciting for the city and people of northeast Ohio to have three huge TV stars coming to town to work on such a wonderful project.”

Cleveland indie nabs 'SNL' alum Abby Elliott, TV veteran Breckin Meyer

Abby Elliott and Breckin Meyer are coming to Cleveland. They are set to star in Anhedonia, the new feature from 1031 Films’ Eric Swinderman and Carmen DeFranco. Filming begins May 1 at locations around Northeast Ohio.

Elliott, an alum of Saturday Night Live, is best known for her roles on How I Met Your Mother, Odd Mom Out, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It may not be Elliott’s first time in Cleveland, either. She played Lara in Fun Size, which shot in Cleveland in 2012.

Meyer starred as Jared Franklin on Franklin & Bash and is well known for roles in Road Trip, Clueless and Garfield.

Also joining the cast is Giselle Eisenberg, who stars as Sophia in Life in Pieces, and Cleveland’s own Debra Herzog, who had a supporting part on Outsiders and serves as a producer on Anhedonia.

Other local stars include Bryant Carroll, Allen O’Reilly, Jonathan Chiarle, and Katherine DeBoer. More roles will soon be cast.
