Clint Eastwood Film ‘J. Edgar’ Filming in N. Arlington Tonight

Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar Hoover biopic, which has been filming in downtown D.C. and Warrenton, Va., will come to Arlington tonight.

A county official we talked to confirmed that filming is expected to take place in North Arlington tonight, but could not reveal the exact location or exact time. Neighbors have been notified of the production plans, the official said.

No word yet on whether the film’s star, Leo DiCaprio, or its star director will be on set.

Update at 4:45 p.m. — The movie is filming in the Donaldson Run area, near Marymount University. Here’s the letter the production crew sent to neighbors:
