Filming for The Longest Week, a film starring Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde, Billy Crudup, and our very own Jenny Slate (!) and to be released in 2012, is taking place on 116th and Claremont today until 5pm. The plot summary on IMDB, which pretty convincingly suggests that this production won’t win any awards, reads: “Affluent and aimless, Conrad Valmont lives a life of leisure in his parent’s prestigious Manhattan Hotel. In the span of one week, he finds himself evicted, disinherited, and… in love.” Yeah, Conrad, that sounds rough and all, but anyone in the vicinity of 116th and Claremont knows that finals week is the real longest week. Nice try.
