West Seattle film-crew sighting: Movie shoot at Jack Block Park

Thanks to the multiple WSB’ers who e-mailed to report and/or ask about this film crew spotted on the West Seattle waterfront, southeast of Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor). A production-crew member explained that portable dressing rooms and production offices are what you see set up on the for-sale property, but wouldn’t identify the film; a police officer posted at the Jack Block entrance said they wouldn’t tell him either. The crew member did say they are using part of the park just for today and that the rest remains open. The only online mentions we could find regarding any movie recently in production in Seattle are about “One Square Mile,” with stars including Kim Basinger and Richard Jenkins – here’s a recent story from the Hollywood Reporter. No proof so far whether that is or is not what’s being shot here today, though.

    Maybe it is Top Chef, filming the geoduck episode!

      They did tell us it was a FILM as opposed to a commercial/TV show/etc., fwiw.

    Guess my guess is wrong then. Thanks!

    I wonder how many film projects (including independent) West Seattle hosted last year?

    I went down there not knowing there was a shoot. The staff was too rude and approached me with an attitude like they owned the public space. The kept telling me to move. The police officer was polite and told me it was ok to stay. A crew member peed directly in public view in the water. YUK!

    It is “One Square Mile”. They were filming a jogging scene at the straight away entrance to Jack Block and had equipment set up on the dock and along the beach access. Film crew and Police were all very nice.

    I saw Alec Baldwin in the Junction this afternoon. Maybe those two are getting back together

      We have an Alec Baldwin lookalike around here too?

  • cjboffoli August 27, 2012 (8:41 pm)

    That was unlikely to have been Alec Baldwin in the Junction today as there are news images on the wire service from today of Baldwin and his wife Hilaria attending day one of the US Open in New York City.

    One Square Mile was filming at Loretta’s in South Park a few days ago.

    I saw a dead ringer for Stan Lee at the farmer’s market. I actually did a double take and stared like an idiot.

Sorry, comment time is over.
