: Could someone help me with the meaning of the phrase 'stand in a five-five-five area' in the following context, please? I saw a DVD commentary where the staffs are talking about a comedic scene in which a family feud is just about to break out.

: EDITOR: All right, now we go.
: PRODUCER: Now we got some fun happening.
: He's so clueless (about what is going on right now.)
: DIRECTOR: Let's all go stand in a five-five-five-area.
: (LAUGH)
: PRODUCER: Yeah, He(the main character) is really in trouble now.

: According to my research, "555" seams to be the area code number of the fictitious telephone numbers in movies so as to prevent crank calls. I also read an article in the internet that in Hollywood they actually do use this area code number nowadays, however I am not so certain whether this into is highly credible. I don't know whether these pieces of information have something to do with the phrase in quesiton, but hopefully they might be a hint.

: Thank you in advance.

I found a typo in the last part of
my question; "whether this into is highly credible." It should be "info" instead of "into".
SORRY!!
