Astoria, get ready: you might catch a second glimpse of George Clooney, this time on set of his new movie “Money Monster.”
According to signs taped along Broadway in Astoria, the film, starring Clooney and Julia Roberts, will be shooting scenes on Thursday in the neighborhood.
“Money Monster,” directed by Jodie Foster, is a thriller that follows television personality Lee Gates who stars in his show “Money Monster” giving Wall Street tips to viewers, according to published reports. However, things go south when one discontented viewer take Gates hostage while on air, and the whole scenario takes place as the cameras continue to roll.
It is not clear if the scenes filming on Thursday will include Clooney, but the award-winning actor had previously been filming at Kaufman Astoria Studios. The production of “Money Monster” has since left that location, according to sources.
Last month, Clooney was spotted enjoying some Greek food at Astoria’s Taverna Kyclades restaurant with Bill Murray, who the day before had lunch at the same eatery with Sofia Coppola, who directed “Lost in Translation.”
