Paramount Pictures has begun production on the new Steven Spielberg movie, directed by J.J. Abrams. Few details regarding Super 8 have been released, but according to local media in the West Virginia city of Weirton, Paramount has moved in, and production is underway. This old steel city’s downtown has been restored to its late 1970s glory for the film.

According to an extra working on the film, the plot involves extraterrestrials who were captured during the 1950s. As they are being transported to a small Ohio town, the train they are on derails, as is shown in the early preview for the movie.

Curious residents of Weirton may have several opportunities to watch production taking place. A Super 8 news website posted the following shooting schedule:

9/21 and 9/22 Brightway between Hanlin and Euclid
9/23 and 9/24 Main St and Taylor
Taylor and Orchard
9/27 New Cumberland
9/28 Fernwood and Crystal
9/29, 9/30 and 10/1 20th St and Booker

10/4 St. Paul Cemetery and Greenbrier Rd
10/5 West St and Mildred then back to St Pauls
10/6 10/7 and 10/8 Taylor and Virgina
10/11, 10/12 and 10/13 Main St, Taylor, Booker, 22nd, 20th st. and 17th
10/14 Downtown Main Street then back to Weirton Hgts

Super 8 is just one of several ufo-related movies scheduled for a 2011 release.
