We spend so much talking about movies when they’re in development that is incredibly exciting to actually hear of a start date for them. When a start date is locked in, it usually means that the flick is finally going behind cameras, and if it doesn’t suck, it could be out in theaters within two years. Website NOLA is reporting that Twentieth Century Fox’s Timur Bekmambetov-directed Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter will begin filming in New Orleans starting January 24th. It will arrive in theaters June 22, 2012. In addition, they state that Dimension Films’ Piranha 3DD goes behind cameras from January 17-February 18 in Baton Rouge. The Alex Aja-directed redo was filmed in Arizona. John Gulager directs this 3D sequel that arrives in theaters September 16, 2011.
