For those wondering why the E. 36th through E. 40th blocks of Prospect Ave. are blocked off, Cleveland has yet another filming on its hands. Cleveland police reported that filming for the teen romantic comedy The Last Summer runs until midnight and that drivers should take Carnegie Ave. as an alternate route.

Unlike last year, when super famous stars like Bruce Willis or Matthew McConaughey made movies in Cleveland, this recent film stars a posse of relative newcomers — K.J. Apa (Riverdale), Maia Mitchell (The Fosters) and Jacob Latimore (most recently seen in Netflix's Candy Jar).

Directed by William Bindley, the story line follows a bunch of recent high school graduates who attempt to "find themselves" before heading off to college. It appears Cleveland is standing in for Chicago in the movie.



Look for more road blockages throughout the month as crews plans to film here until June 7. An official release date is not yet known, but expect the film to arrive in theaters sometime next year.
