HBO film crew are in the process of capturing some scenes for the movie on boxing icon Muhammad Ali on Washington Avenue, Albany.
Washington Avenue has been blocked off as it is occupied by more than a dozen 1960s and 1970s cars.
The steps of the Education Building, across from the Capitol building, are said to be used as a fill in for the steps of the US Supreme Court, according to reports in the Times Union.
The film follows Muhammad Ali’s battle against the US Government for his refusal to take part in the Vietnam War, which was brought to the Supreme Court. Christopher Plummer and Peter Gerety are among some of the actors that are shooting the scenes on the steps.
