Vampires are coming to take a bite out of the Big Apple in the latest Will Smith science fiction thriller about a mutant virus gone awry.
Filming for the Warner Bros. movie, "I Am Legend," involved having a Black Hawk helicopter fly over the city on Wednesday for test shots. The filming is expected to run until mid-March.
In the movie, which is due in theaters in December, Smith plays the last human survivor in what is left of the city after a terrible virus is unleashed around the world, publicist Carol McConnaughey said.
The movie will feature a scene in which a Black Hawk lands on a barge near a Manhattan pier, said the Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting, which promotes and licenses moviemaking in the city, reports AP.
