MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - A Hollywood thriller has begun filming in Mobile.

Al.com reports (http://bit.ly/1trFTu8) that “Bus 657” so far has used locations including The Battle House, Hayley’s Bar and the U.S.S. Alabama battleship.

The film’s plot involves a casino heist and stars Robert De Niro. It began filming in Mobile last week.

Screenwriter and actor Stephen Cyrus Sepher, a Los Angeles native, tells Al.com that he sat down at a Starbucks seven years ago and wrote the script. He said it is “surreal” to now see De Niro and other actors work to take that script to the big screen.

This is Sepher’s second time working in south Alabama. He had a bit part in the Bruce Willis movie “Vice,” which was filmed in the Mobile area earlier this year.
