(CLEVELAND) There are two movies currently shooting in Cleveland after one just wrapped over the weekend.

New Zealand's KJ Apa, who played Archie in the CW series "Riverdale," is filming "The Last Summer," set in Chicago about a group of young people who come together during the summer before they head off to college. The brownstones on Prospect Avenue in Cleveland will double for the Windy City.

Meanwhile, "I See You" is shooting in Lakewood and stars Helen Hunt and Jon Tenney, the story of strange occurrences that plague a small town detective and his family as he investigates the disappearance of a young boy.

Finally, "Native Son" just wrapped up shooting this weekend. That movie stars Sanaa Lathan and is the story of a young African-American man who comes of age in the South Side of Chicago during the 1930s. It shot in Cleveland with a few days of filming in Shaker Heights.

All the movies are set for 2019 releases.
