Sepia (123 N. Jefferson St.; 312-441-1920) announced on Tuesday on its Facebook page that it would be closed from July 1st to July 9th but coyly implied that it wasn’t just for a long Fourth of July break. In fact, the restaurant is closing to accommodate the shooting of an as-yet-untitled Ron Howard movie starring Vince Vaughn and Kevin James. (The IMDB page for the film shows the rumored title Cheaters, and the production company—often a clue to film titles—is called Heartless Productions, LLC.)
The movie, which also features Jennifer Connelly, Winona Ryder, Queen Latifah, and Channing Tatum, entails several scenes that take place in a Chicago restaurant, which in the movie will uncoincidentally be called Sepia.
