The Tomb Raider star was recently spotted in the upper Manhattan neighbourhood scouting for locations, wearing dark shades, a black coat and black knee-high boots. The Hollywood beauty checked out the luxury co-op building, The Riviera, on 157th and Riverside Drive.
"They're not moving. They're just shooting," The New York Daily News quoted Robert Spitzler, who lives in the building, dispelling rumours that Jolie and hubby, Brad Pitt, are apartment hunting. He said location scouts from the movie came to his home looking for a suitable living room to film a cocktail party scene.
Another neighbour said that movie bosses might have chosen a vacant eight-room apartment as the home for Angelina's character. In the movie, the actress plays an American spy wrongly accused of being a Russian double agent out to kill the President.
Many tenants got notes under their doors and an e-mail telling them that camera crews for the movie would be shooting in the quiet, exclusive development for a few days in March. The building is a block from the hustle and bustle of Broadway, so that Pitt, along with their six kids could spend time with Jolie on the set.
