Film shoot to close Center City streets

Posted: May 02, 2012

Forget about driving on the 1600 block of Walnut Street from dawn to dark on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Monday.

From 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day, it’s going to be used in the making of a mob movie, “Dead Man Down,” which began shooting around the city a couple of weeks ago.

Perhaps star Colin Farrell, Terrence Howard and Noomi Rapace (of Sweden’s original “Dragon Tattoo” movies) will be seen outside Urban Outfitters, Alma de Cuba or the Apple Store.

Occasionally, nearby 17th Street and Walnut from 17th to 18th may also be off-limits.

No closures are planned for Saturday or Sunday.

The plot involves a woman seducing a mob lieutenant to get revenge on a crime boss, according to IMDB.com.
