Update: Movie “The Whole Truth” shooting in Lincoln Park


(looking south from the north end of the central LP parking lot where the crew’s headquartered)
ORIGINAL 9:17 AM POST: As mentioned here last week, the city’s film office confirmed shoots were coming up in West Seattle (while reiterating it can’t reveal who/what/when/where) – now, two reader notes say there’s a crew in Lincoln Park today; we’re on our way to see what we can find out. 9:31 AM UPDATE: 2 people down there (including WSB’er Jenny; thanks!) told us it’s called “The Whole Truth.” That didn’t bring up anything obvious on iMDB.com but a straight Google search brought up this page for the movie, and the e-mail address at the bottom would seem to verify. (Plus, a person we talked to said someone from “Law and Order” is in the cast, and the actors listed on the movie’s webpage include Elisabeth Rohm.) Not the first movie to film in Lincoln Park, of course; this recent WSB Forums thread about WS movie shoots mentioned the 1995 Drew Barrymore movie “Mad Love.” 9:48 AM UPDATE: Just found a production blog for the movie, by director Colleen Patrick. What we learned on site: They’re there till 8 pm tonight; the central Lincoln Park parking lot is closed for the duration; they’re currently shooting south of the ballfields that are near that lot. 10:10 AM: Adding a few pix. Note the “Talented Animals” truck (there’s a dog on the cast page):

    I heart Eric Roberts! :D Looks like a good flick.

    I just drove by Lincoln Park and in the upper parking lot there are a lot of trucks and part of the lower lot is roped off.

    These pretzels are making me thirsty.

    A dog named Rin Tin? I guess the dog’s too small to fit the whole name on him.

    Does this mean I cannot take the shelties there today? :(

    The whole park’s not closed off – just that parking lot – and the filming area’s cordoned too – we’ll be checking back in early afternoon for status/location.

    Most of the time we just walk there from our house, but it is 1 3/4 miles there and back, so we don’t usually go in to the park on those days. Today was going to be a special car ride and just go to the park without the long walk before hand treat.

    To update because I just drove by again – only about half the central lot is blocked off, not the whole thing. Plus part of the southernmost L-Park lot is cordoned off too.

    The movie sounds like cinematic torture to me. But cool that they are filming it right here :-)

    That’s the worst movie website I’ve ever seen.

    I see Jim Holmes is in the movie. Is he brother to the famous John Holmes. Now there’s a movie I would like to see. Porn in Lincoln Park.

    Location trucks are in the parking lot north of Pyramid Alehouse this a.m. (between the warehouse and the viaduct). When I asked where they were shooting, a crewmember gestured in the direction of Qwest Field, so it could be Pioneer Square or the International District…

Sorry, comment time is over.
