Gossip sites and Twitter handles were alight earlier this week with sightings of actress Keira Knightley all BFF with Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine. Well, rev the engines once again, because the duo will be back in the neighborhood today filming the new feature flick, Can a Song Save Your Life?
The film focuses on an aspiring singer-songwriter (Knightley) who moves to the city with fellow musician and boyfriend (Levine). Their breakup shortly thereafter sets the stage. Mark Ruffalo and Hailee Steinfeld co-star; John Carney (Once) and Judd Apatow were both tapped for the project in director and executive producer roles respectively. Ruffalo was last seen in these parts a few months ago while filming SWAT scenes for Now You See Me on Orchard Street.
Pretty much the entire parcel of land from Chrystie to Clinton Street, south of Houston, has been earmarked for the shoot. A complete occupation. That’s not hyperbole – those neon production signs and cones criss-cross the streets.
