Mid-Michigan is getting a little taste of Hollywood again. 

A camera crew will be filming scenes for a major motion picture, this time in Mason. 

Crews are expected to be filming outside of the courthouse between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Tuesday evening. 

They are working on what's being called the "Untitled Detroit Project," said to be about the 1967 Detroit race riots. 

Some big names are attached to the project, including Academy Award Winning Director Kathryn Bigelow. 

We're told crews will film two brief shots outside of the Mason courthouse area. It's a period piece, so the city has to remove banners, furniture and bike racks to keep everything accurate. 

You may see some detours posted due to road and parking lot closures downtown as well.
