From Kyle Hopkins in Anchorage --
Paris Bakery is playing the role of "Hansen's Bakery," the shop owned by Robert Hansen, who is believed to have killed up to 21 women in the 1970s and '80s. I drove by to take a look:
In this clip, you can see a vintage brown Oldsmobile arrive and park beside that period white-and-blue APD squad car. That's Cusack climbing out of the car and walking toward the bakery. Moments later, the crew shifted to begin filming a scene in which Cusack, who plays Hansen, greets a man carrying a loaf of bread out of the shop.
The storefront next to the bakery has been designed to look like a dollar store. Posters in the window advertise "Steak Knives $1."
UPDATE: I asked the city manager's office about the potential traffic disruption along Muldoon and the status of filming permits.
Just received this response by email: "This morning, state of Alaska and Municipality of Anchorage right-of-way agents dispatched and reminded production crew of regulations surrounding operations near the ROW."
