The car chase from Bullitt - Follow the jump to watch the video

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!

        Those cars handled better than most modern cars do now. They weren't skipping and scrapping like a modern car would. The cars have to be in character. They aren't going to be low riding, ultra stiff, racecars. Those were not dressed up hollow prop cars or wanna be race cars. This isn't "Fast and Furious". This is Bullit!

          While I appreciate your enthusiasm for defending the best "Guy Movie" of all time... "Those cars handled better than most modern cars do now." is almost criminally wrong. My sister's minivan handles better than those two cars.

      What the heck does a Korean movie theater chain have to do with the Bullitt chase scene? And if 3D isn't enough, what is 4D now?

      I live on the corner of Green and Jones and watched the production from the comfort of my terrace. Some pics and clips of the jumps are posted on my blog: http://eatarf242.blogspot.com/2011/05/making-movies-on-russian-hill.html

      They are setting up do do a scene on Jones @ Green right now (Sunday AM). Jones is very steep going up to Green. Just the thing if you wanted to get some air. ;-) Not sure if I should spend the day hoping to see something, or just go on about my life.

      Here's an idea: Instead of trying to remake something that they can't obviously remake, remaster Bullitt!!
