'Five Year Engagement' scheduled to do additional filming in Los Angeles this weekend

By Jenn McKee

The movie-shoot-watching website On Location Vacations reported that the production team of "The Five Year Engagement" —the Judd Apatow-produced comedy that was primarily filmed in the Ann Arbor area last year—is scheduled to do some additional shooting in Los Angeles this weekend. Whether this is to film additional scenes or re-shoots is not clear.

Currently, the release date for "Five Year" is April 27.

Starring Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Mindy Kaling, Chris Parnell, Rhys Ifans, Alison Brie, Chris Pratt and Kevin Hart, "Five Year" chronicles the trials and travails of a couple as they very gradually make their way to the altar. The film is directed by Nicholas Stoller, who co-wrote the screenplay with Segel.

Local filming took place at Liberty Square plaza, Main Street, The Cavern Club, Zingerman's Bakehouse, outside Beezy's Cafe in Ypsilanti, Ann Arbor's Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Palmer House, U-M's Angell Hall, and a personal residence on Berkshire Road, among other locations.

Thanks for the update Jenn...keep it up! Love to know what they're up too. The fun they are having staying in character during the promotion of the movie as seen with &quot;Tom and Violet's Wedding Blog&quot; is cool to follow. Sign the Guest Book everybody...we did! The trailer shows that a number of sceens were shot as well as a major portion of the story takes place in Ann Arbor and U of M. It was great having them visit us last spring! <a href=""></a>

Give it a break with the stories about this movie already. It has nothing to do with Ann Arbor anymore, and the constant stream of updates is annoying. No one cares.
