    Jimmy, I went down to my office at 6:30 am
    and there was nothing going on. Walked all over and saw they
    were doing something in the LaSalle Street Bridge,
    didn't see any vehicles though.

    Went back to the office and they cleared out
    LaSalle and had the streets wetted down
    with a water spraying truck. They were towing
    cars and there were a lot of cops around but
    no action. I stayed until around 10:00 and saw
    production taking a lot of still photos but no
    vehicles or action before I had to leave.

    There are more filming signs up near my house
    for tomorrow, if it is TF3 I will let you know.

    Well man I know where youre coming from, Ive had that feeling but hey this kinda stuff doesnt happen everyday and I think this is the last week of filming, when the Dark Knight was filming here I didnt go down at all to the sets, but Ive seen amazing pics, I guess you could say Im just curious and making up for lost time with the Dark Knight. Let me tell you if and when Batman 3 films here next year this will be happening all over again:D

    Surprise! More filming this week in Chicago...

    Well, I have a bit of info for this week:

    I checked the set near my house three times today and that shoot has been pushed off until tomorrow. From what I can tell it looks like it is probably not TF3 but I won't be able to tell for sure until the trucks roll in.

    On a better note, while walking home today I did pass by what is obviously a TF3 setup on Wabash Street between Lake and Randolph. The parking lot next to the Popeye's is full of standard TF3-type "debris." It is unclear if they are shooting in that lot and its parking garage or just using it to stage materials for a bit further north near where they were shooting near Wacker and Lake a few weeks ago. From the signs it looks like they will be shooting there for at least two days.

    Also, they still have equipment at the Old Post Office so they might not be done there either.

    Dude where so you live??? interesting about the parking garage....oh and about the post office, what do they have over there??? I went by there the weekend after they filmed the first time, they still had it opened(meaning not having the stairs blocked off like a condemned building) and they still had a handful of those grey trucks in the back lot, and it looked like a mess, but no production trucks at all......

    They still had those gray trucks and also security guards at the P.O...no reason to keep those people on the payroll there if they are completely done with that location.

    I live right by the Hancock, the filming area by me is just south of Chicago Ave. near Northwestern, but based on the relatively small area they have marked off it looked more like one of the tv shows they are filming here now.

    But the Wabash site is def. TF3, I posted a quick video of the set on my YouTube channel.

    Oh nice.....Yeah dude I know it seemed like they were finished, and even when I went by there the security guard in the car was sleeping, I could have walked right in the door of the post office and he would have never known, but they did have heavy cameras on the place so it seemed like they were guarding something for TF3. Dude nice video and from what I saw yeah it seems like the filming is going to happen right in that little lot....

    I'm sensing that the crews are still there but not the filming. There hasn't been new YouTube footage or pics for a week, so maybe they are filming at a studio or another location.

    Hey gang;

    I haven't been over to Wabash yet today, but I did walk past the Post Office, where they appeared to be moving equipment in. There were also a few no parking/movie signs up for Aug. 17-19. So they might be filming on or around Van Buren on Wednesday.

    6:00 am – 3:00 pm Friday August 20th.

    HELICOPTERS

    8:00 am – 9:00 am, Saturday, August 21, helicopters will be used at low altitude for aerial photography over the Chicago River. This will include brief (15 minutes) intermittent closures of the bridges at Michigan, Wabash, State & Dearborn.
