Filming For ‘The End Of The Tour’ Scheduled On I-196 On Thursday
Filming for the movie "The End Of The Tour" could cause some traffic problems along I-196 on Thursday.
A crew for "The End of the Tour" will be filming on the 196 between Fuller Ave. and Lake Michigan Dr. between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. West Michigan M-DOT has indicated that there will be some lane closure, and that at the least, traffic will be moving slower.
The silver lining? Drivers could catch a glimpse of "The End of the Tour"'s stars Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel!
The crew will initially head westbound from Fuller Street to Lake Michigan Drive, then turn around and drive back in the opposite direction. They'll continue this until they've finished their filming for the day.
Both Grand Rapids and Michigan state Police will be escorting and monitoring the shoot, and will bill the production company for costs incurred.
Starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel, "The End of the Tour" is the story of the travels of novelist-writer David Foster Wallace (being portrayed by Segel) at the end of a 1996 book tour accompanied by Rolling Stone's David Lipsky (Eisenberg).
