An excerpt from an article, concerning the sudden popularity for movies to be filmed in Alameda, California. (The Matrix Sequels are partly being filmed there):
There’s Hollywood, Bollywood and, now, it turns out, Alywood, the hip celebrity hangout formerly known as Alameda.
Yes, movie fans, that was Laurence Fishburne you saw mingling with the gym rats at Bladium, the island’s giant sports and fitness club.
He’s in town filming the Matrix 2, the latest addition to Keanu Reeves’ inspiring cinematic oeuvre, and yet another in a long string of big-money films to be shot in this once unassuming city.
…But back to Fishburne. He dropped by Bladium recently, along with a small flock of movie stuntmen, to pump some iron.
Reeves wasn’t around, which isn’t surprising. He’s a naturally rugged star who performs most of his own stunts, relying on stand-ins only for scenes that require acting.
Ouch. Check out the link below for more.
