Hollywood came to Grosse Pointe City last week.
Pedestrians and cyclists looked on with curiosity Oct. 16 as “No Sudden Move” — a forthcoming film from director Steven Soderbergh — filmed at a home at the corner of Lakeland Street and Maumee Avenue.
Grosse Pointe City public safety officers were on hand to keep pedestrians and motorists from traveling Lakeland between Maumee and Jefferson Avenue during the shoot. It was the second of two days of filming in the City, the first location outside Detroit being used for the crime drama, whose cast includes Don Cheadle, David Harbour, Benicio Del Toro, Jon Hamm, Ray Liotta, Amy Seimetz and Kieran Culkin.
Among the onlookers were aspiring actresses Audrey MacGillis, 13, of Grosse Pointe Park, and her sister, Amelia MacGillis, 11, along with their friend, Vivi Cilano, 12, of Grosse Pointe Park, who has done some acting, as well.
“It’s really cool,” Audrey MacGillis said of having a film shoot in the area. “It’s really exciting.”
She and her sister were watching to see if they could get a glimpse of Harbour, because the siblings are fans of Harbour’s popular TV show, “Stranger Things,” but they hadn’t seen him.
“Most of the big actors are in their trailers,” Cilano said.
Trailers for the actors were stationed at Neff Park, while the parking lot at Grosse Pointe Unitarian Church served as the commissary.
“I’m just really excited to watch it,” Cilano said of the movie. She was also impressed with the vintage vehicles parked on Lakepointe, saying that the older cars “look super cool.”
