Updated: We’re starting to piece together some details that might point to a “50 Shades of Grey” movie shoot. Over in Northgate, a “50 Shades” film crew is shooting on the ramp to southbound I-5, according to WSDOT. There were reports earlier this week about a similar shoot in downtown Seattle. And the movie poster (below) features a home with a Seattle view.
Earlier: My Ballard reader John said it looks like a movie shoot is underway along 32nd Ave. in Sunset Hill, so we went to take a look. There are several production trucks parked near 85th St., and this “Barbarian Cine” truck is parked in the driveway of one of the big homes overlooking the water.
A quick search reveals that “Barbarian Cine” is a local company that provides lighting services, often for film shoots. There’s also a long line of “no parking” signs, which are designated for 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. today. We did not see, however, trailers typically used for talent.
While Sunset Hill has a short history of film shoots — remember when we saw Robin Williams in 2008? — this could be just a big party in preparation stages.
If you have details, let us know in comments below…
(Thanks John for the tip!)
