Ralph Macchio films in Whitestone on Wednesday.

A dark comedy about a Corona man played by Ralph Macchio of “Karate Kid” fame was shooting scenes in Whitestone Wednesday.

The film, called “Lost Cat Corona,” as the name suggests, is about a “play-it-safe guy” from the Queens neighborhood, played by Macchio, who is searching for his wife’s (Gina Gershon) lost feline.

According to IMDb, along the way, he is brought “face-to-face with the colorful, wacky, and sometimes, the more dangerous element of his neighborhood, forcing him to confront his fears and rethink his M.O.”

“Lost Cat Corona” also stars Sean Young and Paul Sorvino.

Directed and written by Anthony Tarsitano, according to Broadway World, the movie began filming in Corona on May 6.

On Wednesday, filming was taking place in Whitestone at the End Zone bar, at 149-44 14th Ave., according to Devon O’Connor of the Welcome To Whitestone Civic Association, who captured several shots of Macchio on a bike with a cat carrier on the back.

“Lost Cat Corona” is scheduled for release in 2015.
