Williamsburg, New York Haredim have finally convinced Columbia Pictures to halt filming of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ in order not to cause parking problems during the Passover holiday.
“We expressed the importance for Spider-Man to pass-over filming during Passover and they have answered our call,” City Councilman Stephen Levin wrote on his blog. “Reducing the amount of parking the production uses will … allow everyone celebrating the opportunity to safely enjoy the holiday.”
Filming the movie during the Passover holiday would have caused several streets to be closed to parking.
Columbia will move its equipment on Friday, and Levin happily responded, “Thank you for letting my people park.”
