'Grimm' shooting in West Linn this week
Things are getting creepy in West Linn this week. The popular NBC series 'Grimm' is spending two days filming at a home in West Linn.
Crews were scheduled to be on the 3400 block of Riverknoll Way on Wednesday and today.
'Grimm,' a police procedural set in a world where Grimms' fairy tale characters are real, stars David Giuntoli as a Portland police detective who can see fairy tale monsters living among us.
The series has become popular in Portland for its frequent use of local actors and locations.
According to a letter sent to West Linn neighbors, filming is taking place between 8 a.m. and 11 p.m. both days. The slated scenes are dialogue scenes inside the home and in the driveway.
After dark, crews are expected to set up large lights on a hydraulic lift.
'There is also one scene of our main character driving quickly out of the driveway into the street, which we'll film Thursday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.,' according to the letter. There will be flaggers stopping traffic in the area during that time.
No dramatic action sequences like explosions, special effects or driving stunts were scheduled for the neighborhood shoot.
Crews were also out in Stafford filming a few weeks ago at 6343 S.W. Wilhelm Road, just off Southwest 65th Avenue,
Known as 'Rooster Ridge' the 6,700-square-foot home in the Stafford area is currently for sale for $2.64 million, according to Justin Harnish, a real estate agent with Harnish Properties in Lake Oswego.
