17 Bridges Filming In Center City, and where they’ll be This Weekend

17 Bridges, the story about a cop ( Chadwick Boseman ) chasing a criminal in Manhattan and closing the 17 bridges that lead into the Big Apple so the criminal (Taylor Kitsch) can be caught, and the women reporter (Sienna Miller) covering the story can fall in love with one of those characters I bet. The film started shooting in Philly 9/24/18 and has been non stop action since. First shooting near 20th and Market, then in the Rittenhouse Square area, before heading to

the Old City area, as well as the Loft District.


This past week they filmed 3 overnight shoots in Chinatown. Philly is doubling as NYC again, and we’ll take it, and the revenue movies generate for our area. I took these shots on my IPhone as the set PA’s and Security were tight on the No Photo Rule.

Although some of the scenes took place on 10th Street,


most of the action took place in an ally nearby, Appletree Street. Thankfully the weather was
damp, and the movie set didn’t need to be washed down to create that spooky, gritty feel.

Extras walking along Tenth Street to create background and block out the folks eating dinner in those Chinese restaurants.

Hey Chadwick and Sienna walking from Appletree Street and the Chinese restaurants located there. It’s movie magic cause there are NO eateries on that street. Just houses, and a hotel.

On Saturday Fox 29’s Alex Holley spotted Chadwick Boseman at the Old City Fall Festival.


17 Bridge star Taylor Kitsch was spotted at Cosi on Market Street earlier this week. He posed for photos with a couple fans. Friday and Saturday the production moves to the actual Manhattan for filming. Keep the tips coming, and I’ll keep you informed as well on my social media.
