Summer of Stars

7-20-2010 1-09-48 PM You know those Michigan summers that we anxiously await all year long for? Well now, the rest of the world knows what we’re talking about thanks to David Arquette.

While filming Scream 4 this summer in Ann Arbor, he’s been tweeting non-stop about how amazing Michigan is! If you don’t believe me, just take a look!

David's tweets have included photos of Michigan sunsets, local restaurants and even a pawn shop in Pontiac he had luck at! Pure Michigan has also taken notice of David's positive tweets promoting Michigan.

Who ever thought that Detroit, Michigan would be the next Los Angeles or New York City? Ok, that may be a stretch, but it does happen to be the latest hot spot for filming silver screen attractions. If you’ve been out and about in the metro area this summer chances are you’ve seen the sets for one of the many movies being shot here. Better yet, you may have had the opportunity to star in one of the movies as well. For those people who have dreamed of being a side kick to Harold and Kumar or even just a by-stander, now’s your chance to get in on the action.

Here are some of the many movies being shot in Michigan this summer:

  • SWAT: FIREFIGHT (April-May 2010)
  • A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas (June-August 2010)
  • Scream 4 (June-August 2010)
  • Real Steel (Hugh Jackman,  June-August 2010)   

There’s always a demand for extras, so if it’s something you’re interested in, you can do it now! Although, the life of an extra is not the most glamorous, you have the chance to be in a major film and possibly meet your favorite celebs. The film industry is bringing great publicity to Michigan and everyone is embracing it. Finally, our beautiful state is getting the attention it deserves!
