Shooting begun this week in St. Louis for George Clooney's film, Up in the Air. News 4 spotted Clooney filming a scene downtown. The film will make use of more than 50 locations in the St. Louis area, including Lambert St. Louis-International Airport.

The film, which stars Clooney, tells the story of a man on a mission to rack up a million frequent flyer miles.
