Bushwick will be destroyed in an upcoming action thriller movie called... Bushwick. According to Deadline, the plot centers around 21-year-old Lucy (played by Jane Levy) "who emerges from a Brooklyn subway to find her neighborhood under attack." Aliens? Zombies? Realtors?
Lucy then "decides to cross the treacherous five blocks of Bushwick—littered with looters, local militias, the invading forces, and one crazy cousin—in order to get home and be reunited with her grandmother." Who is probably about to be priced out of her lifelong home.
The movie will be directed by Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott, and will start filming this summer. Will Jefftown be featured? Ridgewood? Is this the first time the word "Quooklyn" will be used in a feature film?
God Save Roberta's.
