Is Brad Pitt filming in Chippy?

220px-Brad_Pitt_5,_2013Rumours are abounding that Brad Pitt is in Chippy this weekend… or rather, that scenes for his new movie are being filmed here.

Fury, a World War Two drama scheduled for release next year, finished filming scenes in Watlington last week before moving to a “new location” for other scenes.

Now, there is speculation that that new location is our town – and two sites in Chippy are giving credence to the rumours.

Both the old War Memorial Hospital site on Over Norton Road, and  Applegarth Nurseries on Banbury Road, have been overrun with trailers and vehicles over the past few days.

This lunchtime, a film caterer was spotted preparing food at the front of the garden centre, whilst movie transportation vehicles were driving between the two sites.

Sadly, we could only see crew members rather than a glimpse of Brad or his co-star Shia LeBeouf. Perhaps they were having a pint in The Blue Boar or The Chequers whilst waiting for their calls?

If you get a glimpse of any Hollywood stars mingling with the Chipping Norton Set, do let us know!
