Bahrani Locations: DeKalb and Iowa  
Finally some concrete info at about the Bahrani Pic! Can't wait for it to start!

DeKalb, Illinois, from Daily Chronicle:
[Producer Patricia] Koffler said that DeKalb County was chosen because "it's just beautiful ... the setting is exactly right for this film."

The film is already in production, said Debbie Armstrong, executive director of the DeKalb County Convention and Visitor's Bureau, although she would not confirm where filming will take place.

"At this point we need to respect their process," Armstrong said, noting that at this point in production the filmmakers are not equipped to worry about crowd control.

Koffler said filming should begin sometime this summer, and that small independent films usually hit theaters "about a year" after they're done filming.

Armstrong said that the bureau has been working with the filmmakers since February, during which time they were shown around the area and put in touch with local contacts.

"We're thrilled to have them," Armstrong said. "We're excited for what it will do for the county."

Newton, Iowa, from Iowa Speedway:
Hollywood movie stars Zac Efron... and... Dennis Quaid, will be at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa, on Saturday, July 16, taping scenes for an untitled racing movie....

Producers will shoot Efron walking across the pre-race stage, Quaid cheering from the stands, and stock car racing footage during the Prairie Meadows 200 scheduled to begin at 4:15 p.m...

“There are a lot of race tracks in America and we are very excited that Mr. Bahrani chose Iowa Speedway as the set for his movie,” says Iowa Speedway President Jerry Jauron. “I hope fans will take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see A-list celebrities and be part of a movie. Let’s show the film crew what Midwestern hospitality is all about!”

The site has info on how locals can possibly participate in the crowd scenes.

I hope this is how Iowa welcomes him

I'm really happy that this movie seems to work out. Short of him being on set filming (the rest of the movie), this is as close as confirmation as we'll probably get.

I'm curious if they really only film a few reaction shots or if they film a few more scenes in the pit stands the day before or after as well, or if that all happens later with the rest of the shoot (and potentially at a different place standing in).

Either way, I'm thrilled. Of course I hope this means, he can do both movies but I'm just happy this one seems a go. :D

Aw, that is where I'm from. It is amazing there, if small townish.

I need to know when they'll be in DeKalb. My daughter's been bugging me to take her to Chicago to see the family. This is as good a time as any.
