Metra officials on Friday announced they’re broadening an investigation into claims that a former rail agency employee tried to shake down a film production. 2 Investigator Pam Zekman reports.
Independent investigators are looking into allegations that a film location manager was hit up for a $2,000 bribe when the thriller “Source Code” filmed in Chicago last year. A Metra employee purportedly demanded the kickback.
“Source Code” is a little like a more action packed “Groundhog Day,” except the day only lasts eight minutes and then everyone gets blown up in the end.
