Hol­ly­wood stars on set for film pro­duc­tion in Fort Wash­ing­ton

The Ambler Gazette - - OPINION - By Thomas Celona

If you thought you saw a fa­mous face in the area last week, your eyes may not have been play­ing tricks on you.

Sev­eral Hol­ly­wood stars were in the area this past week­end as film­ing for an up­com­ing mo­tion pic­ture took place in the Fort Wash­ing­ton sec­tion of Whitemarsh Town­ship.

Crews from the forth­com­ing film “3ara­noia” shot scenes in town Thurs­day, Aug. 9, Fri­day, Aug. 10, and Mon­day, Aug. 13, ac­cord­ing to a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from the Greater 3hiladel­phia Film 2ffice. The shoot­ing took place at the Ar­bor Hill es­tate on Sheaff Lane. The 70-acre es­tate, which is owned by for­mer Ad­vanta Corp. CEO Den­nis Al­ter, is cur­rently on the mar­ket for be­tween $20 mil­lion and $30 mil- lion, ac­cord­ing to me­dia re­ports.

Based on Joseph Finder’s novel of the same name, “3ara­noia” stars Liam Hemsworth, Gary Old­man, Har­ri­son Ford and other big-name ac­tors in a cor­po­rate es­pi­onage thriller in which Old­man’s char­ac­ter black­mails his em­ployee, played by Hemsworth, into spy­ing on a ri­val com­pany, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease from Re­liance En­ter­tain­ment. Di­rected by Robert Luke- tic, the film is set to hit the­aters Sept. 27, 2013.

While the Greater 3hiladel­phia Film Of­fice could not con­firm which of the films stars were on set in Fort Wash­ing­ton, The 3hiladel­phia InTuirer re­ported both Hemsworth and Old­man shot scenes, along with Ju­lian McMa­hon, fa­mous for his role on “1ip/Tuck,” and Em­beth Davidtz, who re­cently stared on “Mad Men.”
