Cameras roll on J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 this week and a local in Weirton, West Virginia – where the production has taken root – got camera happy and snapped off some pics. What you see below and more of right here. Weirton will serve as Lillian Heights in Super 8‘s Lillian, Ohio, as you can see, where the production design team is going for a small town Amblin film feel. Shouldn’t be too hard with Steven Spielberg sitting in the producer’s seat.
Elle Fanning and Kyle Chandler recently joined the film, expect more cast announcements as they come in.
