"The Town" Starring Ben Affleck

6/05/2009 12:04:00 AM
Thanks to Bloggery Reader Bill for the reminder of where I was reading about The Company Men's last few shoots. He reminded me it was in the Herald, and so I dug up the blurb which basically said that the Company Men won't finish shooting at Fenway Park until the weekend. So hopefully they'll still be there today if anyone's interested in looking for them.

On to newer news. Now that The Company Men is wrapping up, it allows Ben to move on to his next film called "The Town" which is going to be filmed in Charlestown.

Ben Affleck will rewrite, direct and star in The Town, a Warner Bros. adaptation of the Chuck Hogan novel "The Prince of Thieves," reports Variety. Graham King is producing through his GK Films.

Affleck would play a career thief who becomes smitten by the manager of a bank.
The project — which most recently had director Adrian Lyne attached — would be based in Charlestown, Mass., a gritty blue-collar Boston suburb similar to the one that Affleck captured in his directorial debut, Gone Baby Gone.

There was a casting call last week for "The Town" (which I missed the news on - sorry) so I guess that means filming will be commencing soon.
