Philly will have two major film companies in town, at least for a day.

Bradley Cooper is out and about, doing two days of "pickups" for the thriller The Dark Fields, for which he was here in the spring with Renee Zellweger. The crew was on Rittenhouse Square on Wednesday and is expected to be back in the square Thursday morning before moving elsewhere in Center City. The film is due in theaters in March.

The crew from the thriller Safe, starring Jason Statham (The Transporter, The Expendables), is settling in to Philadelphia after a couple of weeks in New York. Filming starts Thursday. They'll be here till mid-December.
