Another movie has made its way to the Sewickley Valley.
Intermittent road closures will continue a few days this week on Blackburn Road in Sewickley Heights for a movie shoot.
From 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, Blackburn Road will close intermittently as scenes are filmed to the yet-to-be-officially-named movie, but is being referred to as “Foxcatcher” on movie database sites.
Film crews also requested to use Woodland Road in Edgeworth to record a driving scene for three hours on Oct. 19, Edgeworth Manager Marty McDaniel said. They also could use a small section of Woodland Road in Sewickley, police Chief Jim Ersher said.
McDaniel said he was unsure if the crew will use the road, but they planned to notify him prior to filming.
No major actors will be part of the scene if it is filmed, McDaniel said.
The movie is set in the 1980s, he said.
The amount of recording time will be determined on whether the surroundings fit the time period, McDaniel said.
No road closures are planned if crews do decide to use Woodland Road, but a police officer will be on site, McDaniel said.
The movie is rumored to star Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum.
This production will be the third shot in the Sewickley Valley in recent years. Portions of “The Lifeguard, “Jack Reacher” (originally known as “One Shot”) and “One For The Money” all were shot in or around Sewickley.
