Superman Movie Shoots on Bridge and Possibly in Cemetary Near Plano

<em>Superman Movie</em> Shoots on Bridge and Possibly in Cemetary Near Plano

CBM scooper Rob had this info to share on recent Superman shoot.

I'm a local delivery man in Plano and the surrounding area and just caught wind that the new superman movie is filming a scene on where a school bus goes off a bridge. It's not in Plano but south in Millington...

From the local paper...

For three days, a bridge in La Salle County will be closed while Hollywood works its magic.

A scene from the upcoming "Superman: Man of Steel" movie, some of which is being shot in Plano, will be filmed on the U.S. 52 bridge over the Fox River east of Serena.

Illinois Department of Transportation media spokesman Josh Kauffman said the Warner Brothers production company was given permission and permits to close the bridge and adjacent highway sections for filming a rumored traffic accident scene on the span. Kauffman said the route will be reopened by Saturday.

The big budget production is expected to be a boon for the local economy in the Plano area, which will be portrayed as Clark Kent's hometown of Smallville. Exterior sets have been built throughout the city and thousands have applied in the hopes of being hired as extras for the filming.

The interesting part of this is that the ONLY thing of note on that section of road is this cemetery.

The reboot, "Superman: Man of Steel," soars into theaters nationwide June 14, 2013. It will star British actor Henry Cavill as Superman, Diane Lane as Martha "Ma" Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan "Pa" Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as Zod and Russell Crowe as Jor-El.

The movie's director is Zack Snyder, best known for his films "300" and "Watchmen."
