W.Va. Bridge Closing Down To Accommodate Film Crew

Follansbee, W.Va. (AP) -- The Market Street Bridge near Follansbee will close Monday while a crew shoots scenes for a movie starring Denzel Washington.

West Virginia film office director Pam Haynes says the bridge also may be closed Tuesday.

Haynes says crews have been shooting the Tony Scott thriller "Unstoppable" at sites across the northern panhandle of West Virginia and in eastern Ohio.

She says the Division of Highways is cooperating, just as it did last year for another movie scene shot near Morgantown.

Haynes says part of "The Road," starring Viggo Mortensen and set for release Nov. 25, was shot on an unfinished section of four-lane highway.

That film is based on a Cormac McCarthy novel about a father-son journey through a post-apocalyptic world.

    I would love to watch this. I hope to be notified when it comes out, especially since it has a part of a nearby area in it :)
