Apparently "The Five Year Engagement" isn't quite done with Ann Arbor just yet.

The high-profile movie did some filming today at Zingerman's, according to the deli's Twitter feed. The deli tweeted this morning that the movie was filming there and extras were needed at 10:30.

"The Five Year Engagement," a romantic comedy starring Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, spent several months last year filming in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. Although major shooting was completed months ago, it's not unusual for a movie to do a few minor re-shoots as the finished product comes together; the movie also did some re-shoots in Los Angeles recently.

Produced by Judd Apatow and directed by Nicholas Stoller, the movie concerns a couple whose engagement becomes long-term and long-distance when the woman gets a career opportunity at the University of Michigan. The cast also includes Mindy Kaling, Chris Parnell and Kevin Hart.

The Internet Movie DataBase lists an expected release date of April 27.

I saw them setting up for a scene of some sort near Main and Liberty around mid-morning. I assume it was for the same movie!
