Hi everyone with heavy hearts we are leaving the Chicago area. As of right now there is no further filming scheduled for the Chicago area. We would like to thank each and everyone of you for your time, energy, patience, and hard work on the set.

We will all think fondly of you and we hope to all cross paths again. Thank you everyone.

Second is an update on Gabriella Cedillo, the extra who was seriously injured during a stunt. E! Online and the Chicago Sun-Times reported that she has undergone brain surgery and is in stable condition.

Third is once again, filming in Washington, D.C., is delayed, according to Politico's report. The previous attempted scheduling date was September 27, but it's been pushed to October 4 later this year. Another change in dates is still possible, although the crew is able to nail down some filming locations and is still in talks with the National Park Service.

Lastly is some good news. From Central Florida News 13, Brevard County and the Kennedy Space Center is gearing up when production comes to their location, some arriving as early as next week in preparation for filming to begin in mid-September.
