'One Shot' Filming To Impact Traffic

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- On the second day of filming for the Tom Cruise movie "One Shot," much of the action was in the air.

Crews were shooting a complicated helicopter scene above the Allegheny River near PNC Park.

More scenes also took place on the Riverwalk below the ballpark.

The scene involves a mass shooting and Cruise plays a homicide investigator.

Meanwhile, in the cultural district, a different crew was busy shooting another movie, "Elixir" starring Jane Seymore.

The cast and crew spent the afternoon at the Benedum downtown.

Although the movie sets and celebrities are alluring – sitting in traffic is not.

Because of film production, over the next few days Pittsburghers will experience traffic restrictions.

"One Shot" will close parts of North Shore Drive and Mazeroski Way on the North Shore from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday next week.

One inbound lane on the Fort Duquesne Bridge will close Monday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Port Authority will move the 14 Ohio Valley and 18 Manchester bus routes and detours will affect Beaver County Transit's Route 1 Chippewa-Pittsburgh and New Castle Transit's service to the Rivers Casino.

In the past year alone, big-named movies such as "The Dark Knight Rises," and "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," have filmed in Pittsburgh.
