The Company Men Filming Soon or Now?

4/03/2009 12:01:00 AM
So you guys all know about the Adam Sandler movie that's filming up in Essex, what I've failed to talk about lately is the new Ben Affleck movie that is going to be filming here at the same time. Here's what I've been able to find so far.

Variety reports that Kevin Costner and Tommy Lee Jones will join Ben Affleck in the indie film "The Company Men," due to begin filming here next month. In the flick, Affleck will play a laid-off corporate mucky muck forced to work for his brother-in-law (Costner), a drywall installer. Jones will play a senior partner in the firm, who struggles with his partners' greed. John Wells wrote the script and will also direct.

For the next few months at least, Chris Cooper is back in Kingston. The in-demand Oscar winner, who managed to miss most of the winter shooting Julie Taymor's "The Tempest" in Hawaii, has a plum role in the downsizing drama "The Company Men." The film, directed by John Wells and co-starring Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Costner, and, we hear, Robin Penn Wright, is set to start filming in the Hub in the next few weeks. "He gets to have a Boston accent and drive to work," Cooper's wife, writer Marianne Leone Cooper, told us.

Ok so seriously, over the next couple of months it's going to be almost impossible to walk around downtown and NOT bump into a celebrity. With this cast plus the cast starring in Adam Sandler's movie, that's 10+ superstars that will be in the area.

PS. Are these guys the ones reusing the "TW" call signs? I don't know but I'll try to find out.

    They are filming in Roxbury right next to my house. They won't (the police) even let me walk down the street. That stinks...
