KENTWOOD, Mich.— Travelers at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport got a taste of Hollywood last week, as crews shot scenes for a film starring Jesse Eisenberg.
A crew of more than 100 people worked more than 14 hours shooting scenes throughout the airport for “The End of the Tour”. Grand Rapids’ airport will represent the Minneapolis- St. Paul and Chicago O’Hare airports in the movie.
“Not only are we happy to host the cast and crew for filming, but we are happy they are flying in and out of our airport and bringing in money to support the local economy,” said GFIA Executive Director Brian Ryks. “They are flying in and out of Grand Rapids, grabbing a cup of Starbucks at our airport, staying in our hotels and eating in our restaurants. It’s wonderful for the entire West Michigan community.”
