Needham just got a little closer to Hollywood. Yesterday, they started filming a new romantic comedy there starring Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner. According to IMDB, Michael Douglas will be in the movie as well.

The movie is called The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. Not much information to be had on the plot. All IMDB says is "A bachelor is haunted by the ghosts of his past girlfriends at his younger brother's wedding."

According to the Globe, crews are filming at a house in Needham and will be around the area for the next couple of months. Undoubtedly we'll start hearing more and more about celebrity sightings at places like Abe & Louie's, Boston Public, etc.

This is great. One movie already filming now, and then Ashecliffe (here) starts filming next month.

UPDATE: Bloggery Reader Kym just informed me that Mr. McConaughy will be filming at Sonsie on Newbury today. If work wasn't so crazy these past couple of days I'd walk over there and check it out myself. Thanks Kym!

UPDATE 2/22/08: Mr. McConaughy was in the Leather District on South Street near South Station filming. According to the Globe, the crew will be relocating to the North Shore for a couple weeks of filming.

    My mom is the head designer at Yum Bunnies Cakery in Belmont. Yesterday, they just delivered 4 massive wedding cakes to the big mansion in Needham for a scene.

    I saw Matthew, Jennifer, and crew filming on Thursday night (4/3) on Marlborough Street in Back Bay. The whole block was lit up and they were filming in front of a brownstone. Autumn-colored leaves were attached to the leafless trees to create a fall setting for the scene. The crowd of onlookers (mostly neighbors) was very controlled and we were allowed to get pretty close to the filming area. Does anyone know if they'll be filming in this location again?
