This Friday, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 will open at theaters around New York. The action remake of the 1974 cult classic tale of a subway hijacking features John Travolta and Denzel Washington in the lead roles, and press coverage is starting to take off. We’ve looked at the film making process before, and today, we have more. The Daily News goes behind the scenes of a movie shot throughout the subway system. Using real New Yorkers in real subway cars in real stations, director Tony Scott is aiming to bring authenticity to the movie.
Meanwhile, movie blogger Jordan Hoffman was part of a movie tie-in tour of an abandoned subway station. Hoffman and company were led on an underground tour of closed sections of the Brooklyn Bridge stop on the 4/5/6. Check out the pictures at UGO Movie Blog. I’m jealous.
