Signage states that on Wednesday, March 29, NBC Universal and Working Title Films will be filming “Untitled New York Christmas Project,” which we’ve now established is a remake of “Bernard and the Genie,” a 1991 Christmas movie. Melissa McCarthy, who was recently spotted popping out of a bunch of Christmas trees on 77th and Columbus, is starring alongside Paapa Essiedu (I May Destroy You, The Lazarus Project).
So if you want to catch a star or just need to move your car, please note that production crews will hold parking on the following streets in advance of filming (towing will be enforced on Wednesday, 3/29 at 6:00 a.m.):
- 72nd between Amsterdam and Columbus, north side of street (half block)
- 73rd between Amsterdam and Columbus, south side of street (full block)
- 74th between Amsterdam and Columbus, both sides of street (half block closest to Amsterdam)
- 75th between Amsterdam and Broadway, south side (one “truck length”)
- 77th between Central Park West and Columbus, north side of street (full block)
