A Fort Lauderdale newsroom is doubling as a film set this week as the new Owen Wilson movie continues shooting scenes in South Florida.
Filming for “Marley and Me” began yesterday in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel’s newsroom. Some reporters and editors signed up as film extras, and the newsroom is getting a little star treatment. Wilson’s desk in the film actually belongs to business writer Harriet Johnson Brackey. She agreed to let the producers of “Marley and Me” use her desk so long as her pictures of her twin daughters could remain on the desk.
The real-life journalists will have to work around the 100 film crew members, 80 extras and yards of electric cables until Thursday.
