‘Causeway’ was filmed entirely in Louisiana, specifically in New Orleans.

New Orleans, Louisiana

Most of the pivotal sequences of ‘Causeway’ were lensed in and around New Orleans, Lynsey’s hometown in the movie, where most of the story is set. The production team supposedly set up camp across the city to tape different scenes against suitable backdrops. Interestingly, when filming resumed in 2021, Jennifer Lawrence had gotten a fresh perspective on her character, Lynsey, due to the changes she had gone through in her personal life during the break.

Lawrence talked about this in detail in a September 2022 interview with Vogue. The actress said, “Her untenable home, her inability to commit to one thing or another because of these internal injuries that are completely invisible but huge — I think I connected with that at that specific time in my life,” she said. “So much was going on with me at that time that I didn’t realize. Until I was back, pregnant, married, and making it. And I was just like, Oh, this is a woman who is scared to commit.”

Situated along the Mississippi River in Louisiana’s southeastern region, New Orleans is the most populous city in the state. Also known as the Crescent City, it is famous for its unique dialects, Creole cuisine, distinctive music, vibrant nightlife, and annual celebrations and festivals, such as Mardi Gras. Apart from ‘Causeway,’ New Orleans has hosted the production of several movies and TV shows over the years. Some notable ones are ‘Where the Crawdads Sing,’ ‘Django Unchained,’ ‘The Haunted Mansion,’ ‘Black Bird,’ and ‘The Winchesters.’
