A Grimm sight
TV show returns to West Linn for two days of shooting
If you were at Willamette Park earlier this week and saw zombies wandering around a film set, you arent delusional.
The NBC television show Grimm filmed on Monday and Tuesday in West Linn this week, prompting the city to close the parks boat ramp, spray park, three baseball fields and the shelter until production ended on Wednesday. The beach area was also closed from Aug. 23 to Wednesday.
In total, production crews created three sets for filming at the park, each along the Willamette River waterfront.
The city received $9,000 from NBC for use of the property.
Grimm, a police procedural set in a world where Grimms fairytale characters are real, stars David Giuntoli as a Portland police detective who can see fairytale monsters living among us.
The series has become popular in Portland for its frequent use of local actors and locations.
The series also shot in West Linn for two days back in March 2012, at the 3400 block of Riverknoll Way.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
