Contagion Filming Location from Nov 29 – Dec 2

November 29, 2010

The film crew for the action-thriller “Contagion” will be shooting scenes from Nov. 29-Dec. 2 in the 500 block of Woodlawn Avenue, said Paul Harlow, Glencoe village manager.

While shooting at Central School in Wilmette on Nov. 23, a production assistant said Glencoe’s scenes will include Matt Damon, Kate Winslet and possibly other stars of the film.

Set in winter, several yards on the Glencoe block will be covered with fake snow for the filming, Harlow said. One house in particular will be used for several interior shots, he said.

Glencoe Public Safety officers will be on the scene, Harlow said – their overtime paid through the film’s budget. He said residents and on-lookers are allowed to stand on the sidewalk when the filmmakers are there.

It’s my understanding that they’re accommodating to the public viewing, but when it’s time to do the actual shooting we would assist them to make sure the scene is clear to meet their filming needs,” Harlow said.

He said Glencoe residents are supportive of the filming.

I think there is a certain level of excitement and anticipation the community is given by this,” Harlow said. “This film, being a major motion picture with a significant number of actors with notoriety, it’s the kind of thing they seem to embrace.

If you stop by on set and manage to take some photos of the filming, we would be really excited if you shared them with us by sending an email to Proper credits will be given.
