Philly Voice says that residents and business owners in Rittenhouse Square and Filter Square have been notified that filming will be taking place in both neighborhoods Tuesday-Thursday (Apr. 20-22). Philly Voice informs residents that the Philadelphia police will be closing down the 200 and 300 block of South 24th Street, the 2400 block of Delancey Place, and the 2300 block of Pine Street will all be closed off to traffic this Tuesday from 7 a.m.-7 p.m but these hours could be extended.

M. Night Shyamalan said that filming in Philadelphia is “real and close to my heart. All the ideas of what it's like to walk through the city, or what it's like to live on that street, are from people that I know. There's an authenticity to it.”
“Servant” surrounds Philly couple, Dorothy and Sean, who are dealing with the loss of their 13-week old son by using a reborn therapy doll named Jericho.
