Wow, I was looking back at my old Ashecliffe posts and realized it's almost been a year since my first post on Martin Scorsese's movie filmed in the Boston area. According to a blurb I dug up from the Globe about a week or so ago, it looks like the name of the movie is back to Shutter Island.

Martin Scorsese can't make up his mind. Initially, the famed director was calling his next movie "Shutter Island," which is the title of the Dennis Lehane book on which the film is based. But while Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, and Max Von Sydow were shooting the movie here, the title was switched to "Ashecliffe." Now, the name's been changed again. Paramount Pictures has created a website for the film: We dropped a line to the film's publicist Larry Kaplan, but he didn't respond yesterday. Whatever it's called, the movie is about two US marshals who are summoned to an island off the coast of Massachusetts to investigate the whereabouts of a murderer who's disappeared from the island's hospital for the criminally insane.

Interestingly enough, if you go to, it points to a blog called "Hollywood In The Hub." Smart move buying that domain before the movie studios snatched it up. I bet it would have brought them a lot of internet traffic if the movie stayed stuck with that name.

Anyhoo, click (here) for the Globe blurb.
