Movie to be filmed in D.C., will use GW logo

Students may be able to do some celebrity-spotting later this month.

Hollywood stars Tom Hanks, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Julia Roberts will be in the District filming director Mike Nichols’ latest film “Charlie Wilson’s War” and some actors will be wearing GW paraphernalia, according to Media Relations.

The film, based on the book by George Crile and screenplay by Aaron Sorkin, follows Texas congressman Charlie Wilson’s dealings with Afghan guerillas in the 1980s.

Although there will not be any verbal mention of GW, some characters in the background of scenes filmed in D.C. parks will be sporting GW sweatshirts, said Tracy Schario, director of media relations.

“We’ve OK’d (the use of the GW logo) and will consult as needed on logo (circa 1980s),” said Schario.

Last fall the I Street Mall was used as a set for the Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig science fiction film “The Visiting.”
