TMNT 2 Preps For Filming Tonight In Buffalo, NY


As of 11pm ET, TMNT 2 will have arrived in Buffalo, NY.

Paramount has already been on seen, located on Humbolt Pkwy, where they have set up their base of operations for a two week span of filming.

Tonight will see the crew set up and test lighting conditions, with filming to start on Monday.

Earlier also saw local residents and businesses greeted by Buffalo officials and representatives from Paramount who went door-to-door informing them in regards to what's in store for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, which includes car scenes, explosions and the use of helicopters.

It's thought the vehicles producer Michael Bay recently teased will be featured in the Buffalo, NY shoot as well.

"We're hearing there may be some very interesting looking vehicles hanging around Buffalo the next couple of weeks," Tim Clark of the Buffalo Niagara Film Commission told Channel 7. "But again, a lot of that is really proprietary, so I can't get into that."

Large lights are set-up along the streets that will light up the night sky for filming. It's been said no big-name actors are present for the filming; however, Buffalo residents are excited.

Our own local Channel 2 news reports (watch the video above) that residents plan on sitting outside to watch the events, and local business have already felt the benefit as production has visited coffee houses and printing supply stores.

Tonight will see the 33 to the 198 in Buffalo closed from 11pm to 4am. Starting on Monday to May 16, the street will be closed from 7pm to 6am.

Cosmic Book News will keep you updated as we're located about 15 minutes away.
