We thought production had already wrapped on Can a Song Save Your Life, which occupied the Lower East Side for much of last summer. Yet, apparently that wasn’t the case. For the last couple days, a small detachment of personnel was dispatched to film some last-minute scenes. Three locations were chosen for the shoot – the Pit at Sara D. Roosevelt Park, the old Bridge Gallery space at 98 Orchard, and 79 Delancey just around the corner. Filming activities were rather subtle; there were no Haddad’s trucks nor many PAs to harass the neighbors.

Can a Song Save Your Life focuses on an aspiring singer-songwriter (Knightley) who moves to the city with her fellow musician and boyfriend (Adam 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.
