Intermittent road closures expected due to movie productions

Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office has announced several intermittent road closures to accommodate two local movie productions. The Man in the White Van and The Vanishings at Caddo Lake will be filming in parts of Southeast and North Caddo Parish throughout the weekend and into early next week.

Ellerbe Road will be closed intermittently between the Lakeside subdivision and Robson Road, from 9am to 7pm on October 14. The 11900 to 12100 block of Ellerbe Road will also be affected.

LA-169 at Twelve Mile Bayou, between I-49 and LA-1, will be closed intermittently between 10am and 2pm on Thursday, 1pm on Friday to 1am on Saturday, and from 1am to 2pm on Monday, October 18.

Drivers are urged to be mindful of deputies and crew in the area.

The Vanishings at Caddo Lake is being produced by M. Night Shyalalan. The feature stars Dylan O’Brien, Eliza Scanlen, and Lauren Ambroe, along with Eric Lange, Sam Hennings, and Diana Hopper. The film revolves around an 8-year-old who mysteriously vanishes at Caddo Lake. A series of past deaths and disappearances begin to link together and forever alter a broken family’s history. No release date is currently available. The production will be filming in the area through November 19th.

The Man in the White Van is directed by Warren Skeels and features Brec Bassinger, Madison Wolfe, Skai Jackson, Gavin Wanreen, and Julia Michelle Phares, along with Ali Larter, Sean Austin, and Julianne Arrieta. Set in 1974, the film revolves around an ominous white van that begins stalking a young girl, leading to a terrifying Halloween nightmare. The Man in the White Van has been filming in the area since September 14 and is expected to wrap up production here on October 16. No release date has currently been set for this film either.
