Katie Holmes in Cleveland to shoot new movie: 'Miss Meadows' here through end of August

Katie Holmes garnered massive world-wide publicity for her split with Tom Cruise last year, but she is quietly slipping into Cleveland to shoot a new film.
The Toledo-native has been busy since her divorce. She has already spent the summer working on Paul Dalio's "Mania Days" in New York, and endured the inevitable tabloid headlines about an alleged budding romance with co-star Luke Kirby.
The small budget comedy "Miss Meadows," directed by Karen Leigh Hopkins and produced by Mark Johnson and Rob Carliner, started filming today in Cleveland's University Circle area. It is expected to be here for about a month.
Near the corner of East 107th Street and Chester Avenue, trucks and movie equipment were parked in the lots at Judson Manor and at University Circle United Methodist Church, where the crew was shooting this evening.
The code name for the film is "Tootaloo," and although it is not on the scale of the recent shoots for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," and "Draft Day," it does share one thing with "Draft Day": signs. The yellow signs reading "FPP" that were used for the Kevin Costner comedy-drama, and direct cast and crew to film locations and parking lots, have been recycled for "Miss Meadows."
