Dolph Lundgren Trains For Drago In Creed 2 | Screen Rant

Dolph has been getting in shape for his role in Creed 2, so that's another movie that will probably film next winter.

Not my favorite movie, but wanted to mention it. In Her Shoes starring Cameron Diaz was filmed in Philly. I saw one scene being filmed in front of an apartment building, the name of which escapes me.

I still have to go with Law Abiding Citizen. West Laurel Hill Cemetery, where the shootout with the robot took place, is on my old police beat. I taught my wife and both kids to drive there

Fell asleep with the tv on last night. Woke up in the middle of the night to see a scene of City Hall at Broad Street (which is a fine way to awaken!). It was a movie called Cyberstalker, a low budget film that originally aired on Lifetime in 2012. I Googled it. The movie was shot in Ottawa, but used a couple Philly shots to try to give it authenticity. I watched the rest of the movie. It's garbage. Don't watch it...

Love M Night Shyamalan and his dedication to Philly and the surrounding burbs. The 6th Sense was my favorite followed by Signs which I believe was filmed in Bucks County. Even liked The Village because of its intriguing premise. Felt very badly that Lady in the Water was "all wet" because it could have been interesting were it not so fragmented.

He is heavily criticized due to his output over the last decade or so - but I still love him.

Split was actually a pretty interesting movie.

There's a production company, Palmstar Media, in Wayne, that I bet he has something to do with.

He's not as far as I can tell, unless he's a silent investor. They were involved in Split though.

Did not know he was from Philly-Scarface is pretty much considered a classic today but was apparently not well received at first.

I recently watched "Brotherly Love" on Netflix-set and filmed completely in Philly. I enjoyed it.
