This Week’s Central City Filming Will Include Gunfire and a Car Crash

NEW ORLEAN (WGNO) - The intersection of Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. will be closed at night this week because a production company will be filming a simulated car crash and gunfire.

According to a release from the City of New Orleans, the scenes will be shot Wednesday, April 23-25, and the intersection will be closed to traffic nightly between 6 p.m – 6 a.m.

Filming will be conducted under the supervision of the New Orleans Fire Department, New Orleans Emergency Medical Services and local law enforcement.

Film New Orleans within the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Economy assists productions with the City’s permitting process, connects productions with local crew and resources, and facilitates communication between productions and the local community.

In 2013, New Orleans hosted 60 tax credit film projects (TV, films, and commercials with budgets over $300,000), with direct spending of $456 million.
