Mayor Nutter Welcomes Jamie Foxx Movie Crew

A little Hollywood goes a long way at City Hall!

The Welcome Mat and the THANK YOU Mat get rolled out Friday for Jamie Foxx and the rest of his movie crew.

Mayor Michael Nutter will formally welcome Foxx, Gerard Butler, and Director F. Gary Gray to Philadelphia. He'll give them each a token Liberty Bell, the official gift from the City of Philadelphia.

Foxx and crew are shooting "Law Abiding Citizen." Shooting started this week and they've been filming around City Hall.

The movie is a psychological crime thriller focused on a criminal mastermind who runs a dangerous operation from his prison cell and the ambitious assistant D.A. who stands in his way.
