By now most of you have probably heard that Josh Hartnett is in town. But, if you haven’t yet, Josh Hartnett is in town! He’s working on a movie with Rosario Dawson and a long list of other actors and actresses, including Gena Rowlands (The Notebook) and Penn Badgley (Gossip Girl, Easy A). The film, “Parts Per Billion”, is an independent movie about “three couples which are forced to make life altering decisions in the face of a disastrous war”.
The crew just started filming about a week ago throughout many areas of Detroit. A couple of the most widely reported places that they have been spotted shooting are Belle Isle and around the campus of Wayne State. MLive has a list of pictures and tweets from the set of the movie that you can check out here. The producer of “Parts Per Billion”, Molly Hassell, is no stranger to Michigan as she has been here in the recent past to work on “Vamps” and “TheGiant Mechanical Man”. It sounds like they should be in town for a few more weeks working on the movie.
When the actors aren't on set, they have been seen around some of the hot spots in Metro-Detroit. Our friend and frequent reader, Jessica Knapik, had the pleasure of meeting Josh Hartnett last week while behind the bar at Imperial (Ferndale). So keep an eye out while your out and about the next couple of weeks. If you spot any of the stars, let us know!
