There will be a movie shoot at the Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park (Google map, corner of Main and Plymouth Streets) in Dumbo on Wednesday, August 15th at 7PM for a few hours. Come by and be an extra in the movie “How to Lose Friends & Alienate People.” You’ll be in a scene with Simon Pegg (“Shaun of the Dead,” “Hot Fuzz”) and Kirsten Dunst (“Spiderman I, II, III,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.”)
There’s a notice to email DUMBOMOVIE@gmail.com if you want to be an extra, but I’ve heard that you can just show up to watch:
Bring friends, and picnic blankets. There will be free refreshments and a surprise raffle. The film is directed by ROBERT WEIDE (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and produced by STEPHEN WOOLLEY (“Interview With the Vampire”) and also stars JEFF BRIDGES (“The Big Lebowski”), MEGAN FOX (“Transformers”), GILLIAN ANDERSON (“The X-Files”), and DANNY HUSTON (“Children of Men”).
How to Lose Friends & Alienate People, is about a British writer’s (Simon Pegg) struggle to fit in at a high-profile magazine in New York. Based on Toby Young’s memoir “How to Lose Friends & Alienate People”. The release date is sometime in 2008.
