There's something about filming in the East Village; Little Orphan Annie likes Citi Bikes
Film crews are out in force this morning along Avenue A and East 11th Street, among other locales... signs point to a Columbia Pictures release called "Moonquake Lake" ... which is apparently code for the remake of "Annie."
Per various Internet reports, the movie started filming in NYC yesterday .... Quvenzhané Wallis ("Beasts of the Southern Wild") plays the title role while Jamie Foxx plays Benjamin Stacks (aka "Daddy Warbucks").
Citi Bikes apparently also have a starring role, based on this photo of Wallis yesterday...
Which may explain the new, presumably temporary, Citi Bikes docking station on East 11th between A and First Avenue...
Columbia reportedly plans to release this film on Dec. 19, 2014.
