Could "Phillywood" be Back in Biz With New Olivia Munn Film?

Our friends over at Philly Chit Chat dished that a new movie starring Luke Evans and David Oyelowo, Oscar nominees Josh Brolin and Maggie Gyllenhaal, and "The Newsroom's" Olivia Munn are in talks to join Luke Evans and David Oyelowo in the star-studded indie movie "Three Seconds." Why do we care? Because the film is set to be shot in Philly.
Seems like just yesterday Nic Cage jogged through Wash West while filming scenes for National Treasure, and Bradley Cooper and JLaw didn't have a date at the Llanerch Diner in Upper Darby. Oh - did any more of you nab a selfie with Sly while was in town, filming scenes for the nth Rocky sequel?

The new film, "Three Seconds," directed by Otto Bathurst, is based on the bestselling book by Swedish writers Anders Roslund and Borge Hellstrom. Via Philly Chit Chat: "The movie follows a man (Evans) who's forced to go undercover in a prison as part of an FBI operation and must then escape on his own after he's abandoned mid-mission."

"It will be filmed in Philadelphia," continues Philly Chit Chat. "And at Sun Center Studios in Aston. It's a long line of productions planning to film this year according to my source. Yeah Phillywood is back in business."
