Hurricane Irene: Filming permits revoked for NYC on Sunday

While the show is currently expected to go on for the Broadway community this weekend, the NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment tells EW it has revoked filming permits that had been issued for New York City for Sunday, Aug. 28, due to Hurricane Irene. The six small productions that were scheduled to shoot this weekend had already voluntarily rearranged their schedules because of the weather. Those include the reality shows Hoarders and Clean House, the film adaptation of Leslye Headland’s play Bachelorette (starring Isla Fisher, Kirsten Dunst, and Lizzy Caplan), and the untitled follow-up from Like Crazy writer/director Drake Doremus starring Guy Pierce and Amy Ryan.

If Irene hits New York City hard and causes power outages, flooding, and transportation issues, more TV and film productions could be affected Monday. Just earlier this week, Mayor Mike Bloomberg announced that a record-breaking 23 primetime TV shows film in the city’s five boroughs.
