“Spiderman 4” Filmed Beneath Williamsburg Bridge Last Night

Posted on: November 18th, 2011 at 6:18 am by

If in the future you see filming signs for a project called Fiona’s Tale, know that it’s just a covert front for the fourth installment in the Spiderman movie franchise. This isn’t the first time such tactics were used and definitely not the last. Last year, the Sacha Baron Cohen film, The Dictator, used the nom de plum Finchley Dreams. Anyway, Boogie reader DS informs us that the production was shooting scenes last night beneath the Williamsburg Bridge.

Apparently the PAs weren’t too happy that he was taking pictures. Our informant writes:

Fiona’s Tale AKA Spiderman 4 is filming on location underneath the Willy B tonight [Thursday] alongside East River Housing. You can see a destroyed Taxi, that appears to have fallen from the bridge. I shot a few photos before I was asked to leave, my own personal property, by one of the snarky PAs.

Spiderman 4, officially named The Amazing Spiderman, is the reboot and stars Andrew Garfield in the lead role and Emma Stone as love interest, Gwen Stacy. There is still argument among comic fiends as to the “one true love” of Peter Parker – Gwen or Mary Jane Watson.
