Tom Cruise's 'Knight & Day' filming in Charlestown

Crews with Tom Cruise's spy-comedy "Knight & Day," formerly known as "Wichita," continue to film an elaborate stunt in Charlestown involving a vehicle careening off of a bridge.

Commuters should expect a traffic snarl or two when shooting is expected to close several roads in Charlestown and South Boston this weekend.

As previously reported in Loaded Gun Boston, crews plan to shut down Rutherford Avenue from Sullivan Square to Austin Street during filming from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17.

Also, the sidewalks around the site will be closed off to all foot traffic. During preliminary filming between 3 a.m. until 6 a.m., one lane in each direction will remain open.

Production continues in South Boston beginning 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 18 until 6 a.m. Monday, Oct. 19 at the Massport Haul Road between Pumphouse Rd. and the I-90 East on-ramp.

In "Knight & Day," Cruise and Diaz have a glamorous and sometimes deadly adventure, where nothing and no one--even the now fugitive couple--are what they seem.

Amid shifting alliances and unexpected betrayals, they race across the globe, with their survival ultimately hinging on the battle of truth versus trust.

Co-stars include Peter Sarsgaard (“An Education”) as a federal agent relentlessly pursuing the couple; Viola Davis (“Doubt”) as a CIA director trying to decipher the true purpose of their high-wire activities; Paul Dano (“There Will Be Blood”) as an eccentric genius behind a revolutionary technology; and Olivier Martinez (“Unfaithful”) as a ruthless arms manufacturer. Co-starring are Maggie Grace (“Taken”) and Marc Blucas (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”).

"Knight & Day" is slotted to hit theaters on July 2, 2010. Click here for the latest.

On Thursday, they had a truck marked 'Pyrotechnics' at the site all day, working under a black Suburban.

lots of security in Woburn today and yesterday behind Woburn Mall, Black Escalades and a black camper. No security guards would talk to me.
