Frank will be filming in New Mexico in January

According to the Albuquerque Business News, a section of their downtown area will be closed off in mid-January to accommodate filming for Frank starring Michael Fassbender, and a newly announced co-star, Maggie Gyllenhaal.  I'm surprised about this because I thought it was going to be filmed in the UK/Ireland. So if you are in the Albuquerque area, you may have a shot at spotting The Fass! I just hope that if and when Michael films in Michigan, that the Michigan Film Office is as forthcoming with all the deets that the ABN is providing, cuz this is serious informacion for stans (stalker fans).

Several areas of Downtown will be shut down in early January for the filming of the new movie “Frank.” The film is advising businesses Downtown that the film, a comedy that stars Michael Fassbender and Maggie Gyllenhaal, will be shooting on Jan. 8, 11, 15 and 17. The film will be shooting at Doubletree Hotel, the Albuquerque Convention Center, the Fourth Street Mall, Sister bar, and the Sunshine Theater, said location manager Deborah Wakshull in a letter left at local businesses over the weekend. Residents and businesses will have access during the filming.

The film is written by award-winning comedian Jon Ronson, who wrote “The Men Who Stare at Goats,” which was also filmed in New Mexico. Source: ABN


And to end the year stirring up crap, gossipers have added Michael to their Hunks on the Prowl list. I'm just posting this because it's boring this time of year. That's all, so take it with a teaspoon of salt.

Lenny Abrahamson mentioned in a few interviews(while promoting What Richard Did) that they shooting both in Ireland and in the US. He said the Dublin and London scenes were going to be done in Ireland and the rest in the US.
Michael is also filming Jane Got A Gun in New Mexico and I saw an article mentioning he might have to work on both films at the same time.

^ Ok, thanks for that info, I was wondering when filming for 'Jane' was going to take place.

It's weird I thought when I first looked at the IMDb page for Frank there seemed to be a mostly Irish/British cast so I figured it would be filmed entirely in Ireland.

I just went to look on the page to see if there is an update. It states both Dublin and Albuquerque but now most of the people associated with the movie seem to have changed because I looked at the individuals and where they were born and either they all had that information deleted from their IMDb page or most of the people have changed.

Weird…

At least Michael is still attached. I guess that is all I care about. I know, so selfish.

So Michael is going to be spending a good bit in The States then! There's Frank, Jane and then XMen sequel. That must be why he was spotted at the USA Visa office in Dublin a couple weeks ago. Big 2013 ahead for Fassy!

Great! But I hope he'll keep some time for his fellows Europeans in 2013, I'm a bit worried about having no reliable date for the release of Twelve Years A Slave in Europe...
