Hollywood buzz around State Capitol

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Hollywood buzz has certainly made its way to Richmond.

Right now, the Steven Spielberg movie, Lincoln, is filming at the state capitol downtown and it's all the buzz among state and business workers in the area.

A lot of people taking pictures of the movie set from their office windows. We got our hands on some of the best pictures taken by those who work around the capitol.

Eric Owen works on Main Street. He's got a great view of the south lawn from the 14th floor.

"It's fascinating because the process of it is really fun to watch there are hundreds of people that are filtering in and out," said Owen.

Like many others who peak out the window more often these days, Owen is trying not to let it get in the way of his job.

"Just have to focus, try to limit that to lunches and breaks...but yeah there are frequent breaks," he said.

The Lincoln movie has been filming at the state capitol for about 2 months. It's expected to continue shooting through December.

The movie is scheduled to hit theaters in December of 2012.
