Big Film Shoot in Dumbo Park Last Night

DumboNYC put out the word that anyone could drop by last night to be an extra at the shoot for "How to Lose Friends & Alienate People," being filmed under huge floating lights at Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park, seen here from the Brooklyn Bridge.

So hundreds did drop by -- the tent in the Empire Stores was packed and many people brought blankets and picnic baskets. Signs warned participants that they gave up the rights to their image forever and throughout the universe.

The local extras were in a scene with Simon Pegg (”Shaun of the Dead,” “Hot Fuzz”) and Kirsten Dunst (”Spiderman I, II, III,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.”) More details about the film at DumboNYC.
