Umbrellas and frequent shade-breaks offered temporary relief to a busy crew and celebrity cast during the final day of filming on "Bringing Up Bobby."
The film shoot wraps Friday night in Oklahoma City, said Sofia Sondervan-Bild, one of the film's producers.
Many of the movie's stars had scenes during the final day of filming, including a sweltering outdoor shot filmed in the backyard of a multimillion-dollar metro home, which Oklahoma Gazette visited.
The cameras rolled as Bill Pullman ("The Killer Inside Me") and Marcia Cross (TV's "Desperate Housewives") traded lines with child-actor Spencer List ("Offspring"), who dialogued with Milla Jovovich ("The Fourth Kind"), the film's central character, Olive, a European con-artist who flees to Oklahoma with her son to escape her criminal past.
While crews adjusted lighting, cameras and lenses, the actors tried to relax on a patio as makeup and wardrobe artists brushed, blotted and tweaked.
List provided much of the off-camera entertainment for the cast and crew, including actress-turned director Famke Janssen, (TV's "Nip/Tuck," "The Farm") roughhoused with the boy and cracked wise.
Filming began about a month ago, Sondervan-Bild said, and the crew shot at scores of locations throughout the metro, including downtown Oklahoma City, Pops and the Round Barn in Arcadia, and several local schools, including Casady and another metro-area high school.
