Walk of Shame had the freeways closed down for so long (6+ hours) that it earned the nickname Shameaggedon, a variation of Carmageddon. And that name, for people outside of So. California, is what they call it when the 405 is shut down for a lengthy period of time due to road work and everyone expects hours to be added to their commute.
Steven Brill (Without a Paddle) wrote and is directing Walk of Shame. In addition to Banks, the cast includes James Marsden, Gillian Jacobs, Bill Burr, Liz Carey, Ken Davitian, Willie Garson, Lawrence Gilliard Jr., Oliver Hudson, Alphonso McAuley, Kevin Nealon, Tig Notaro, Ethan Suplee and Sarah Wright.
Filming on the 2014 release is expected to finish up in March.
Walk of Shame stars Banks as an aspiring reporter whose dreams of becoming a network news anchor are compromised after a one-night stand with a handsome stranger (played by Marsden) leaves her stranded in downtown Los Angeles without a phone, car, ID or money – and only 8 hours to make it to the most important job interview of her life.
