AFS Meets Mueller

The airplanes no longer fly in and out of Mueller, but the big ol' empty hangars left behind by the move to Bergstrom have not lain idle for long. Re-purposed as movie soundstages, their hulking shells are perfect for housing all the big equipment and make-believe sets that major movie production requires. Although some projects, like Sandra Bullock's upcoming project Miss Congeniality and Robert Rodriguez's Spy Kids, have already filmed there, we expect even bigger things to happen once the Austin Film Society and the city of Austin finalize all the management details that are currently in discussion.
