Just got a question from a student and I thought I would share my answer here:
“Besides The Hollywood Reporter, does you have of a list of films pre-production shooting in NYC?”
Hi, there! Backstage.com seems to have a pretty reliable list of films in pre-production (as does their print edition): http://www.backstage.com/bso/production-listings/ny.jsp
If you are a SAG member, you can also check out SAG's website for official production listings, organized by state: http://www.sag.org/content/production-listings
Finally, the NYC Mayor's Office has a website set aside specific for Film, Theatre and Broadcasting: http://www.nyc.gov/html/film/html/index/index.shtml. They only have a "sample" list of current productions- here is the link to that page: http://www.nyc.gov/html/film/html/locations/current_nyc_productions.shtml
I am sure there are other resources, but these are the three I rely on most heavily. Good luck!
