A number of sources saw actress Keira Knightley in the Wasabi Bay parking lot along Mill Creek Boulevard during a Lynn Shelton film shoot on Wednesday, June 26th.

Stephanie Anders alerted us that Keira Knightley was filming at the Zen Garden Building via our Facebook page, "My friend owns Wingert insurance...they asked to borrow their power for a bit and filmed outside their office."

Shelly Wingert, Wingert Insurance Agency co-owner, reported the film crew, “took over most of the parking lot down by Wasabi Bay bright and early this morning.” She said the crew changed out some of the building signs for their shoot and got down to business quickly.

According to KIRO Radio staff on mynorthwest.com, Knightley is in the Seattle area filming a movie for local director Lynn Shelton, “The new film, ‘Laggies,’ began filming last week with Knightley in the starring role. Director Lynn Shelton posted photos of some of the locations on her twitter account.”

Kyung Oh, Wasabi Bay owner and chief chef, said that everything was over by the time he arrived to open for dinner at 4 pm. He said some filming was done in office 109 within the Zen Garden building and the film crew didn’t allow onlookers to take any photos.

IMBd says the film is about, “A woman stuck in permanent adolescence lies to her fiancé about going on a retreat and spends the time hanging out with friends instead.”

Knightley’s co-stars include Chloë Grace Moretz, Sam Rockwell, and Tiya Sircar.

Indie director Lynn Shelton now lives in Seattle and has been tweeting profusely about her movie shoot since it began early in June.
