Project Power on Netflix
Project Power lands on Netflix on August 14th.
The film tells the super-powered story of Art (Jamie Foxx) as he goes on a rescue mission to save his daughter.
Art is joined by a team of allies including Frank Shaver (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) as they come up against a sinister threat and a pill that can give the user a temporary burst of superpowers.
Where was Project Power filmed?
Project Power is primarily set in the city of New Orleans, Louisiana, so it’s a huge relief for fans who are sticklers for authenticity because…
- Project Power was filmed on location in New Orleans.
Project Power features a host of notable landmarks throughout New Orleans with much of the movie shot outdoors.
Specific filming locations you might be able to spot in Project Power include a former apartment complex in the Lower 9th Ward, made distinctive by its graffitied exterior, as well as the Six Flags amusement park which has been abandoned since Hurrican Katrina in 2005 according to The Cinemaholic.
Filming took place in New Orleans between October 8th and December 22nd, 2018 with $80.4 million of the film’s $85.1 million budget being spent in Louisiana itself.
Other projects filmed in New Orleans
In recent years, New Orleans has surged in popularity among film and TV productions, partly due to a 40% tax credit offered by the state of Louisiana.
Notable productions to have filmed in and around New Orleans include the TV series American Horror Story, Django Unchained which also stars Jamie Foxx, Jurassic World, Captain Marvel, Logan and the Oscar-winning Green Book.
Project Power is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on August 14th, 2020.
