Chicagoist Readers On Location

By Scott Smith in Arts & Entertainment on Jul 21, 2006 6:26PM

A sharp-eyed Chicagoist reader named abmarfia spotted a movie being filmed on Wayne Ave. just north of Bryn Mawr and snapped some pictures of it before uploading them to Flickr with a "chicagoist" tag.

Before we could start our detective work to figure out what movie it is, another Chicagoist Flickr stream contributor named pantagrapher closed the case. The movie being filmed is called Quebec and stars John C. Reilly, Lili Taylor, Jenna Fischer from the American version of "The Office" and Sean William Scott.

The film is being directed by Steve Conrad, writer of another Chicago-set film The Weather Man. The film follows two gents who are competing for a promotion at their grocery store job. We’re just glad to see Chicago stealing Canada’s movies instead of the other way around.

There’s lots going on this weekend so keep adding those photos to Flickr and tagging them with Chicagoist. And don’t forget to contribute your anonymous tips to Chicagoist Labs.
