Filming “Late Autumn” at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery
Several readers have written in asking about movie crews seen filming at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery this morning. According to the cemetery they were filming a scene for the remake of 1960s era Korean film “Late Autumn,” which has been spotted shooting all over town, including in Ballard and Fremont, for the past month.
According to Variety, the film is a remake of Lee Man-hee’s 1966 drama “Full Autumn” and stars Wei Tang (”Lust, Caution”) and Bin Hyeon. The story follows a woman (Tang) who is released from prison to attend her mother’s funeral, along the way meeting an escort (Hyeon) who is on the run from a jealous husband. Filming is expected to wrap in early February. The movie is set to release at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival in May. You can read more about the film on the PI’s Big Blog.
