Another Movie Filming - VSI?

4/30/2008 12:22:00 PM
I'm relying on the collective knowledge of all you readers to solve this mystery. The last time I tried this, folks responded in less than 30 minutes to identify the mystery movie as "Bride Wars" (here).

Yesterday someone left a comment saying the following:

What is the "VSI" movie that is currently shooting in south boston? Right across the summer St. Bridge... Anyone know what it is?

Anyone out there know what this might be? Whenever I see the letters "VS" together, all I can think of is Victoria's Secret. Yes, my mind is in the gutter.

Update:

Thanks to Bloggery Reader Lyette. According to her findings, VSI = The Surrogates - Bruce Willis's movie. Why they're using the letters "VSI" I have no idea. Click (here) to go to the site that Lyette found.

Update2:

Thanks to Joel we now have an explanation for "VSI" -
VSI stands for Virtual Self, Inc. this is the name of the company the creates the personal surrogates, android substitutes that let users interact with the world without ever leaving their homes.

    I believe they are now filming in Wayland, Ma. I saw the signs and lots of production vehicles. They are filming on Moore Rd.

    I saw the VSI signs on Route 9 in Newton yesterday (5/12) on my way home. They were leading off at Hammond Pond Parkway and there were VSI Crew Parking signs leading to one of the Chestnut Hill Mall's parking lots. Didn't see anything else.

    I live right near the mill in Hopedale where they are supposedly going to film. Place has been abandoned for thirty years, a lot of it has been torn down, and now they have some poor jackhammer sitting there 24/7 in a car to protect 8 or 10 somewhat derelict looking Boston police cars. I wanna watch when they blow them up. That, and the helicopter they're going to blow up too, according to rumor.

    I live right near the Paul A Dever old State Hospital and decided to take a rollerblade ride back there tonight. I tried to catch as much as I could but felt as though any second state cops we're gonna get me on trespassing. What I did catch was: a full garden planted w/ lots of random chairs placed all over the road and grassy areas. A roof of a house on the street (just the triangle part of a roof) that looked like a scene from Wizard of Oz, a crazy art sculpture made of rusted metal and a stadium looking concrete piece of artwork that was about 12 feet high and lots of cranes to get shots up high!! I will definately be investigating this one : )
