Ready for Our Close-Up

City Council President Rayland Van Blake said the city may be showcased as a prime film location as he sought council permission Monday for a film shoot here endorsed by renowned filmmaker Spike Lee.

Sometime this spring, New York University students may be filming “US: A Love Story” for which Van Blake is associate producer.

The project will also benefit from a $10,000 grant from Spike Lee, Van Blake said.

Another filmmaker has asked permission for a two-day shoot on Evergreen Avenue.

The film requests and more will be up for a vote Wednesday (April 18) at 8 p.m. in Municipal Court, 325 Watchung Ave.
