Beyonce in Compton? And Will Smith?
Residents are reporting multiple park closures due to Beyonce and at times Will Smith, filming at various locations for the Oscars which will air this Sunday.
“Just heard Beyonce and Will Smith are filming on Alondra and Central,” wrote one resident on social media.
Residents reported seeing production equipment at Tragniew Park, with heavy police presence. Many remarking the park started being prepped over the weekend.
While the superstar made nary an awards campaign stop over the past months in support of her track “Be Alive,” co-written with artist Dixson for the film “King Richard,” Beyonce’s camp has been in deep talks with producers to mount a satellite performance of the song — one that would possibly open the show, and broadcast live from tennis courts in Compton, Calif.
The 2022 Academy Awards will air this Sunday, March 27, on ABC.
