While a number of upcoming film projects are being filmed in Chicago, MyFox Chicago
has delightfully posted some great footage of an action sequence taken for "Wanted (2008)" which was being shot in a Berwyn, Illinois parking lot.
There are four clips altogether :
Video 1: showing a Dodge Viper being driven at high speed around a corner by a stunt.
Video 2: showing a take on the flick's leading lady Angelina Jolie riding on the car which turned out to be nothing more than a shell, which was mounted on a flatbed truck.
Video 3: showing another take on Jolie behind the car's wheels.
Video 4: showing the actress coming to the set and discussing the take before getting into the car.
A production of Universal Pictures, "Wanted (2008)" is a film adaptation of Mark Millar's comic book miniseries of the same name published by Top Cow as part of Millarworld. Apart from Chicago, filming also took place in the Czech Republic where production designer John Myhre constructed a large textile factory in Prague as part of an industrial world, the setting of a mythological environment in which looms create fabrics interwoven with the destinies of people.
Below is another look on the Windy City set of the movie:
