Ann Arbor blaze is a stunt just for Hollywood

Spectators watched as a car blew up on the corner of West Liberty and 1st streets in Ann Arbor on Wednesday afternoon. The blaze wasn't the result of reckless drivers but the work of stuntmen working with a Hollywood crew filming scenes for Miguel Arteta's dark comedy, "Youth in Revolt." The film stars Michael Cera ("Superbad," "Juno"), who plays Nick Twisp, a teen who attempts to steal a car but instead wreaks havoc on the town. On Thursday, the crew plans to blow up a house built especially for the movie.
