It should come as no surprise that lately the Greater Boston area has seen more and more celebrities about town. Sitting in Starbucks, going to dinner, catching a Red Sox game.
But why has everyone been flocking to the Hub? Movies. In recent years, more and more movies have been filming in or around the Boston area, and Hollywood’s obsession with Boston has become far more serious. Can you blame them? If you’re from Boston, you know how incredible it is.
And it’s hard not to get excited seeing a local spot on the big screen that you just so happen to frequent.
Next up on the docket, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are considering a trip to Boston in September to start filming Witchita, a movie about a single woman who meets a man and subsequently falls in love with him before finding out he’s a secret agent.
The exact location of the shoot is unconfirmed, but you shouldn’t be surprised to see Tom Cruise traipsing around Boston from September to November for this movie.
Another Hollywood hotshot seen enjoying the Boston scene is Cambridge native Eliza Dushku. If you’ve been following her on Twitter, you know she’s recently been to a Red Sox game and been jogging along the Charles. Currently, she’s been working with Joss Whedon on Dollhouse, and has a short list of movies that are in pre-production that are scheduled to release anywhere from the end of this year to the beginning of 2010.
For those Boston natives, and tourists alike, there are a few websites to check out that give limited (but good) information on upcoming movies that will be filming in and around the Hub. Check out Boston Movie Tours and Loaded Gun Boston to see who will be where, and for how long.
