‘Wonder Woman' Filming Shuts Down Busy Georgetown Road

Georgetown has gone back in time for the filming of the "Wonder Woman" sequel, but the little dose of Hollywood could make getting around the neighborhood a little difficult.

Wisconsin Avenue between Volta Place and M Street will be closed all day Thursday as crews shoot scenes for "Wonder Woman 1984." Police say the road is scheduled to reopen at 8 p.m. 

The movie, which is set in the 1980s, will also film in the Alexandria area, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam annouced Wednesday. Reports have identified empty Landmark Mall as one location, but the Virginia Film Office declined to confirm specific locations.

In Georgetown, film crews have recreated Commander Salamander, a popular punk store that operated in the neighborhood during the 80s and 90s.

"Wonder Woman 1984" will star Gal Gadot in the lead role, as well as Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal.

The director, Patty Jenkins, attended McLean High School in Northern Virginia her senior year.

The movie is scheduled for release in November 2019.
