"42" Changes Up Second Street And Extras Get Fitted
Prop masters with the movie“42” change the store front shops on Second Street to look like they’re from 1940’s time period on Monday. Crews removed merchandise inside stores like the Quick Mart in order to start building a set inside.
"They're taking out the shelf and they're going to clean it you know and then they're going to install their own unit of set up," owner of the Quick Mart, Ashfaq Siddiqui said.
Many of the shops are receiving makeovers as prop masters build store front sets for the movie. They're covering up air conditioning vents, adding on to the front of some shops, and even building sets inside stores. Many of the carpenters signed non-disclosure agreements and can’t discuss what they’re doing. However a few said they will be done transforming the street in the next few days,
While crews prepare the street, extras and were walking around Luther Williams Field as production continued despite of the rain.
"Well because of the rain today we haven't done anything besides fitting," extra Danyun Respress said.
Extras were fitted for their clothing and waited around in hopes of being called to film. Due to the rain, the crew shot scenes inside the locker room according to media liaison for the movie Ernie Malik.
However Respress said they were also filming scenes between the Brooklyn Dodgers and Philadelphia Phillies on the field.
First time movie extra, Maurice Wyman, said being on location is quick paced
“It's kind of hectic back and forth with everybody trying to be where they need to be so it's pretty cool,” Wyman said.
The most exciting aspect for Wyman will be seeing the movie in theaters. "I can't wait to see the final product, you know just to see the people before hand and then to connect the dots as I watch the movie, it should be great," he said.
Respress also said the big rumor flying around set on Monday among extras is that Harrison Ford will be on location to film on Tuesday.
