BATON ROUGE - Another film crew is set up in downtown Baton Rouge, and that's causing some residents headaches when they try to find a place to park each night.

For the past couple of weeks, roads have been blocked in that neighborhood while the new movie "The Host" has been shooting. Some in the area are not happy about the inconvenience.

"It can be aggravating. I mean you live here. You can't go somewhere else ...and cause a problem," said Breanna Harris.

But others said with the new surge of film productions in Baton Rouge, problems like this come with the territory.

"In the long run it brings commerce and attention to Baton Rouge and to Spanishtown," Lance Wall explains.

Shooting in Spanishtown wraps up Friday night. But the production will continue shooting in other parts of Baton Rouge through April. "The Host" is based on a novel by "Twilight" author Stephanie Myer.
