Fast and Furious III in downtown LA

Seems they are always filming TV shows and movies downtown LA.

This week, they've been transforming a few street downtown LA for filiming Fast and Furious III. They put up all sorts of signs and lanterns to make the street look like a Japanese downtown street. I walked by one parking lot and they had 5-6 cars all painted with stickers to look like the same car.

I remember years ago, I was downtown and saw when they were filiming Gone in Sixty Seconds with Nicholas Cage and they had 7 lime green Cobra GT's. A while back I was watching a TV shoot and there were a bunch of people, but the only actor I recognized was Ice T, this was the first season of Law and Order...

I guess they've been fliming all week at night.
I wonder, if they will be filiming next week, I'd bring my camera and take pics of the cars.
They have some really cool cars set up for filiming action on the street. They are all blacked out; a Porsche Cayanne, a Mini Cooper and a Lexus I, alll with camera booms attached to them....

Are YOU talking to me?

Thats awesome. I wish my city would play host to a movie. Instead of being lame everyday.
