ECHO PARK — If you were one of the Echo Park residents who wondered what all that shooting was about on Saturday night, this video clip may explain it. Wendy A. took this video on Lake Shore Avenue, which had been closed off south of Scott Avenue for the filming of what was is apparently Will Smith’s upcoming Netflix film, Bright.
The brief clip starts off with lots of gunfire and then the police pursuit of a vehicle down the narrow, hilly street.
While many residents were not happy about the simulated gunfire associated with the filming, Wendy said it was no big deal. “I thought it was pretty cool,” she said in a Facebook message. “They redid the same scene more than 6 times, and I really didn’t mind the noise it was pretty interesting to just watch.”
