'Paperboy' Wraps, Bahrani starts up again soon  

The Paperboy wrapped yesterday after 34 days of shooting. Now the long wait begins until we get to see how it turns out!

It always makes me sad when a project ends, it doesn't seem to matter that I'm not even a part of the crew, lol.

Bahrani news...

There has been an open casting call put out, see info here.

There is also some confusion about whether it has started filming or not. On Location Vacations said they were filming as of Wednesday and that Zac was there.
[Wednesday] the movie was spotted filming at the DeKalb County Courthouse in Sycamore, IL and they are expected to continue filming in the area through the beginning of October - source

UPDATE: OK, I’ve straightened out the confusion about the Sycamore shoot. Apparently it is the untitled Zac Efron movie that has been filming in IL (and he was there [Wednesday] night) - source

I'm pretty sure he was still in New Orleans yesterday (and I believe Dennis was still filming What to Expect..." in Atlanta, GA). We also haven't had any indication of setup or, like last time, dozens of people seeing/hearing about Zac, Dennis or other crew being there.

Plus, maybe most reliable, one of the production companies said on August 8th that they start back up on September 28th:

Given that, it sounds like he has a bit of time off and maybe he'll head home for a few days.

It makes me sad knowing Zac won't be in New Orleans anymore. Like you said, now we get to wait before we get to see the movie. Anticipating this movie. I've been wondering this for a while, who exactly is "@LDanielsButler" is that Lee Daniel's assistant?

So on September 28th, they are only filming for 11 days? Isn't that a short amount of time since they only filmed for like 2 weeks, I think, before Zac left to film The Paperboy?

Haha. Clearly, Zac picked up some supernatural pointers while shooting Charlie St. Cloud. This isn't the first time he's been seen in two places at the same time (if you believe Twitters). The question is, New Orleans or DeKalb, which is the real Zac and which is the apparition?

I'm not positive exactly how many days they filmed in the first day but about three weeks as they started on July 15th and ended August 8th (a week or so after he left). So estimate about 15 days shooting. Then plus 11. It is short but not impossible.

Leah is the director's sister and she worked on casting.

I'm pretty sure he was still in NOLA yesterday, I assumed by Leah's wrap tweet that he was still filming yesterday, plus there was a sighting of him at a park that I saw.

You wanna talk about random tweets, I saw one saying he's supposed to be in Singapore next week for the Formula One race. So he'll get to practice his two places at once superpowers again

I seem to recall that HSM was shot in 24 days (after a couple of weeks of rehearsals), but that was a cheap and quick cable movie. The quickest theatrical movie I've heard about was Christian Bale's Harsh Times in 28 days. 26 days for the Untitled Bahrani Project is pretty tight; remember, they burned off three days going over to Iowa to get about two minutes of film with the cast, plus some race-car footage. Well, we'll know sooner or later.

Didn't Hairspray take like 6 months? No....maybe it was 4. I'm pretty sure they were filming in July and still filming in November, because Nikki's birthday is then, and they had a party for her. I think that Zac mentioned in an interview once that they had 6 weeks of rehearsals. Of course, it was a musical with dancing and singing, so that would take longer.

Now that Zac is back in DeKalb, maybe he'll show up at a Bears game.

Hairspray was a big production. Rehearsals began in early July and production began with a table read on August 21. The final shooting day was December 1. Zac didn't work every day, of course, and he had time to go off to attend various award shows, the "premiere" of Derby Stallion in NYC, etc.

It's an odd comment to make but I'm looking forward to him coming back to LA! \0/ (Watch me eat my words once I see RR et al, lol)

Bite your tongue lol. It's wrong of me to hope he gets new friends, right? Damn.

Haha, sorry I'm not sorry! ;)

I agree with you on the first part. Second part, not so much.

Fair enough!

they were filming the playboy club at the court house. I believe it was only a 2 day thing though.
