Bullitt car chase being recreated in San Fran for commercial
Hot on the tail of the music video for Sharam's "Fun" comes word that an advertising agency will attempt to recreate the chase scene from Bullitt in downtown San Francisco once again. According to SF Appeal, Duroo Productions, Inc. is set to film a spot for a Korean-based movie theater chain hoping to strut its new 4D movie experience. From the sound of things, the city's financial district will see its fair share of car chases and gun play with actors firing blanks at each other. San Francisco's film commission is warning individuals in the area not to be alarmed or call the police if they hear a commotion.
The action is taking place today on Montgomery, Bush, Sansome, Sutter, Pine, Washington and Clay streets between 6:00 AM and 8:00 PM, and while residents will have access to their domiciles, they may have to wait a few moments until the crew is finished shooting a particular scene. For fun, the original Bullitt chase sequence is embedded after the jump. Thanks for the tip, Schirmer!
