Last Day of Shooting is Thursday: The Queens-based set of the Weinstein Co. thriller “Awake” experienced about a one-hour delay because everyone was driving to Kaufman Astoria Studios via carpools and vans from Manhattan to the Triboro Bridge. Once it was discovered that there was an outbound lane open on the Queensboro Bridge -- which is close to the set -- the drivers were informed, and that helped considerably, “Awake” co-producer Amy Kaufman said. “We had a 9 a.m. call, and by 10 a.m., everyone was here. So far, so good,” she said. “Usually you have actors in separate cars, but this time, everyone traveled with everyone,” Kaufman said, including such ride-sharing stars as Hayden Christensen, Terrence Howard and Fisher Stevens. The production had to cancel a planned B-unit production shoot in Manhattan, featuring driving shots across the Brooklyn Bridge and on Seventh Avenue. “I don’t think we’d be able to get the permits,” Kaufman said. “Our last day is Thursday, so we’ll have to figure out another time to do that.”

MTV Talks to Terrance Howard. "They're popular people, but the beautiful thing is that they're beautiful artists," Terrence Howard said of Jessica Alba and Hayden Christensen, his co-stars in the upcoming drama "Awake." "[They] had that dream like any other 6-year-old that says, 'I don't want to be a star, but I want to be in the movie business.' That's their calling." Now the three are pursuing their callings together on the high- concept film, currently filming for a 2006 release. "Imagine being operated on and being awake in the middle of the operation, but not being able to move; being conscious of it," Howard said of the film's plot. "It's called anesthetic awareness, and it happens probably about 60 percent of the time. There are some who are able to recall what's taken place that's what that's about."

Two productions that are going on this week are the Weinstein Co. thriller "Awake," starring Hayden Christensen and Jessica Alba , and the NBC midseason legal drama "Conviction." Both are shooting at Kaufman Astoria Studios in Queens. "Awake" production manager Robin Sweet said she had a plan in place Friday, when the strike was first threatened, and it‘s still the same. "I have hotel rooms on hold in Long Island City at a Comfort Inn right near the studio and carpools for much of the crew," Sweet said. The production secured 15 passes for private pickup vans from Manhattan, Sweet said, many of which will pick up a mix of production, crew and cast members. "All of the actors are very understanding," Sweet added. "It‘s easy for us being on a stage because we don‘t have to move equipment."
