No Release Date Yet for Tornado Movie Filmed in Rochester
"Black Sky" starring Richard Armitage was filmed on campus at Oakland University and at a school in Oakland Township.
The action-adventure movie filmed in and around Rochester last summer is in post-production, as the movie's cast and crew have been releasing a few details about its plot and target release date.
"Black Sky" starring Richard Armitage was filmed on the campus of Oakland University and at Oakview Middle School in Oakland Township, among other spots.
And although Armitage indicated in a recent television interview that the filming has wrapped up, "no date has been set yet," for the movie's release, according to a tweet posted by producer Todd Garner.
Armitage was asked about the movie in an interview for a British talk show; he said it involved "pretty dangerous stuff" and that it's "completely different" from his work in "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." Watch the interview here.
Here is the synopsis of the movie: "In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot."
The scenes filmed at the middle school showcase the path of the tornado after it hits a high school graduation; wrecked cars, uprooted trees and even an overturned school bus could be seen on the set.
At Oakland University, the movie crew constructed a used car lot for some scenes in the film.
