Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston’s latest project, Untouchable, is about to close some Philadelphia streets.
The movie is set to film a scene in Center City from late Friday through early Saturday, according to the Greater Philadelphia Film Office.
But, please, don’t be on the lookout for Cranston or Hart. As Greater Philadelphia Film Office executive director Sharon Pinkenson told us Tuesday, “no principal actors are working that day, so there’s nothing worth watching.”
Street closures, however, were made in an announcement distributed to business owners and residents in the filming area (which was then posted to the Philadelphia subreddit on Tuesday), the GPFO confirms. The Untouchable project will film at Market Street and John F. Kennedy Blvd. between 15th Street and 20th Street from 7 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday.
According to the announcement, the production will film “cars driving westbound on JFK Blvd. and eastbound on Market” between 15th and 20th Streets. As a result, Market St. and JFK Blvd. will be closed to vehicles in that area during the movie's shooting hours.
The release goes on to note that Philadelphia police will determine “street closure times and detours” for the area, and that “professional stunt and safety personnel will be on-site during filming.”
Despite street closures to vehicles, sidewalks will remain open. The announcement indicated that production assistants will be available to “coordinate special access into the closed area” for businesses and residential buildings that need it.
Formerly referred to as “The Untouchables,” Untouchable is a remake of the hit 2011 French film, The Intouchables. The film reportedly follows an aristocrat who hires a caregiver with a record after becoming a paraplegic.
