Dead Man Down shot scenes on Orchard Street last night, just a few paces north of Delancey. Four hours of aggravation to film a couple scenes with Colin Farrell and Dominic Cooper in front of a pickup parked outside Lucky Jack’s.

The shopkeepers along this stretch of pavement – mainly the leather and luggage vendors – were paid cash to stay open extra late. Production needed plenty of light to fill the block.

Many of the neighbors weren’t too happy with the 100-foot lights shining into their windows, or the inability to pass freely to their destination. Some told off the PAs saying that they didn’t have two minutes to wait for the filming to pass. Or how about the industrial-sized light bulb that fell and near killed a pedestrian? And then there was the constant chuckling from the peanut gallery, randomly yelling “action” and “cut” to the chagrin of those working. Ah, Lower East Side.
