Scenes have already been shot on Wall Street and in other locations, but on Thursday "Money Monster" begins filming in DUMBO.

Jodie Foster directs Julia Roberts, George Clooney, Caitriona Balfe, Dominic West and Jack O'Connell in the film about a guy who holds a Wall Street money guru responsible for losing all of his family's money.

Publications show photos of Clooney wired with explosives.

For the first time in Brooklyn Roasting Company's history, the cafe will be closed on Thursday for filming. Staff members were taking down the doughnut bin and removing other obstructions Wednesday night. (Don't stress, 20 Jay Street workbots -- brewed-to-go coffee will be available outside the cafe.)

Don't even think about parking in DUMBO Wednesday night/Thursday . . .  and the green cab question remains up in the air. Signs hanging around DUMBO say that parking will be held for production vehicles on John, Plymouth, York, Bridge and Jay streets. Tow trucks were set to head out at 10 p.m. Wednesday night. (See photo of sign below for more details.)

TriStar Pictures intend to release the film in 2016, according to Wikipedia.

Tidbit: This is a film that SONY's CEO didn't like
