Alayna Jackson, an employee at Municipal Brew Works, said cast members and movie crews have visited the local business in the past during filming.
“It’s amazing and definitely brings a lot of light to Hamilton …,” she said. “We had James Franco and the cast from his biker movie come in here. It was exciting.”
A movie being produced by Emilio Estevez, which has a cast that includes Alec Baldwin, will begin production in Cincinnati this month, according to Kristen Schlotman, executive director of Film Cincinnati.
“Over the past few years, Emilio Estevez has been a tireless ambassador for Film Cincinnati. With our unique architecture, hospitality, home-grown talent and state tax credits, our region has become a frequent resource for the film industry, and Emilio has helped us tell this story,” Schlotman said.
The film, “The Public,” centers around a standoff with police and library officials when library patrons, many of whom are homeless and mentally ill, stage a sit-in. Parts of the movie will be filmed at the Cincinnati Public Library, she said.
There is likely to be a call for extras for the movie, according to Film Cincinnati, but additional information is not yet available.
