Jim Winstead's had a great view over the past few days into filming that's been taking place at the Farmer's and Merchants Bank. Check out all three of his posts on the topic: the first, where he watches the film heist and then find they're shooting a pilot for the spin-off tv series a tv series with the same name across the street that very day; the second, where he thinks one of the actresses was checking him out; and the third, where he spots director Doug Liman on set.

I walked by that set a couple times over the past week, and I couldn't help but enjoy the generic names they give to film and TV companies. "Bank National"? It's also odd seeing the interior of the Farmers and Merchants building with a full bank setup -- desks, computers, banners, etc.
