Miley Cyrus To Film In New Orleans?

There are a few sure-fire signs that summer has given way to fall in south Louisiana.

Actor Bruce Willis, center, catches a New Orleans Hornets game with team owner George Shinn, left, in late March, 2010, while in town working on the action film ‘Red.’ Willis will return to town in January to work on the sci-fi thriller ‘Looper,’ with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt.
Your eyeballs no longer break out in a sweat on the walk from the driveway to your front door.

Our annual bout of hurricane hysteria has passed the midway point (but, alas, still without a Hurricane Morgus).

And movie productions begin flocking back to the region, with some big names in tow, to take advantage of the mild weather and the state tax breaks.

During the next few months, a parade of A-listers including Zac Efron, Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch, Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Taraji P. Henson are expected in the state to work on a busy slate of fall films in and around New Orleans. Others might be on the way.

And that’s not even counting the rumors swirling around that have names like Miley Cyrus and Christopher Nolan cropping up. (For the record, different projects. Very, very different projects.)
