CINCINNATI -- Car chases and crash scenes will require temporary road closures in Over-the-Rhine Tuesday as part of the “Point Blank” movie shoot, according to the Cincinnati Transportation and Engineering Department.

Here are the closures to plan for Tuesday:

  • Elm Street between 12th Street and 15th Street: 6 a.m. until around noon
  • Northbound Central Parkway between 12th Street and 14th Street: Approximately 3 p.m. until 8 p.m.

Detours will be posted in both shooting locations.

Grant and 14th streets, both between Central Parkway and Elm, will be closed for equipment staging and scene shots as well.

On-street parking will not be allowed on any of the streets where shooting is taking place.

Netflix’s “Point Blank” is a remake of Fred Cavaye's 2010 French film "À bout portant." The remake will tell the story of Paul, an emergency room nurse and Abe, a criminal, who are forced to work together to save Paul's pregnant wife after she is kidnaped.

Two actors with ties to Marvel Studios’ “Captain America” film franchise, Frank Grillo and Anthony Mackie, star in the film. Crews are expected to be in the Queen City for six weeks.

A release date has not been announced.
