Before shooting for the Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper movie The Place Beyond the Pines even begins, a second film has already been scheduled to be shot in the Electric City, starting in the fall.

Indelible, an independent film written by Mikki Del Monico, will begin shooting in October, shortly after filming wraps for The Place Beyond the Pines. Filming will last for a few weeks.

Del Monico has roots in Schenectady, which influenced her to shoot parts of the film here. The majority of the scenes will be shot in The Bronx, but a local hospital, school and other various locations will serve as the Schenectady settings.

The film, which will be directed by Randall Dottin and will star Tristan Wilds, tells the story of a geneticist who attempts to save her son’s life, as he suffers from a rare congenital disease.

Don Rittner, head of the Schenectady Film Commission, is thrilled to have another film in the area so soon: “The local connection came through for us again,” he said.

According to the Times Union article:

They’ll be filming [The Place Beyond the Pines] here for four months, which will generate a lot of money for the city, Rittner said. If we can bring two or three movies to town each year, it can create a major economic impact.

The Capital Region is beginning to build a reputation as a welcoming, inexpensive place to shoot a film, compared to New York City.

We all benefit from having movies shot in this area, Rittner said. Once Hollywood realizes this is a great place to make movies, people spread the word and it builds.

There is not yet any word as to specific details of the whereabouts or if any extras will be needed. As more news unfolds we will keep you updated.

What do you think of a second film being shot in Schenectady so soon?
