Kate Hudson, Kathy Bates and Whoopi Goldberg are among a cast of actors in New Orleans this month for thefilming of "Earthbound," a new romantic drama set for release in theaters this fall.
Filming has taken the actresses and other cast and crew in recent weeks to tucked-away French Quarter courtyards, the city's zoo, parks and the elegant Le Pavillon Hotel.
On Wednesday, Hudson was part of filming at the Napoleon House, a 200-year-old French Quarter building that was once home to Nicholas Girod, mayor of New Orleans from 1812 to 1815.
Today the old haunt is a bar and cafe.
Nicole Kassell, the film's director, says that's the same purpose it's being used for in "Earthbound,"
which is scheduled to wrap production in New Orleans on March 10.
