More Movies Coming to Boston

2/25/2008 01:22:00 PM
For faithful readers of this blog, it's not news that more and more movies have been filmed in Boston in the past year. 2008 is looking to be an ever more productive year. Who knows, pretty soon all the Starbucks in the area might be manned by aspiring actors and actresses as opposed to broke students.

As you know, Mr. McConaughy and Ms. Garner are already here filming Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (here). Martin Scorsese will begin production of Ashecliffe next month (here). And now it appears that Bruce Willis will be filming a movie called "The Surrogates" in the area and Kevin James will be filming a movie called "Mall Cop."

The Surrogates is "set in the near future, where humans live in isolation and interact vicariously through surrogate robots who are better-looking versions of themselves. Willis plays a cop who, through his surrogate, investigates the murders of others’ surrogates. The cop is forced to venture from his own home for the first time in years and unravels a conspiracy."

On top of all that, rumor has it we're (using the royal "we") trying to secure a TV series in the next year or so. That would be pretty neat. I hope it's Smallville - so that Kristin Kreuk will be in town. =)

To what do we owe all these movie deals? Tax credits.
