A film crew is shooting near the intersection of Chicago Avenue and Grove Street today, and that had an Evanston Now reader wondering whether there were any big names in town.

Sorry, folks, but city officials say it’s just a group of students from a DePaul University film class shooting a very low budget action-adventure feature, set in part at North Shore Coins, at 1501 Chicago Ave.

They’re expected to be on site for three days, according to the permit they were issued by the city.
