Mine actually wouldn't be a movie at all. It would be a television series that is actually on now. It's called Empire and the writing is phenomenal and the acting is top notch. I am actually addicted to the show.

Anyone know if Glass will be filming here? I really hope so. Samuel L Jackson said principle filming would begin next month. The first two in the series, Unbreakable and Split, were filmed and set here.

Another not mentioned was "Blow Out" with John Travolta. Scenes from East River Drive, Center City and Penns Landing. Kind of forget the plot but believe it was a murder mystery.

That show is supposed to take place in New York but is filmed in Chicago. Nothing Philadelphia about it unless you are referring to a specific episode or something?

Cookie and Lucious (i think that's how you spell his name) is from Philly. Whenever they have flash backs to their younger years they are based in North Philly 22nd/ Diamond i believe.

Its director, Brian DePalma, grew up in Philly. He also went to Friends Central.

He filmed another movie in Philadelphia, Dressed to Kill.
