Movie Alert: Here Comes the Boom!

2/06/2011 10:59:00 PM
Ok, looks like we have at least two movies filming in the area for the next few months.  Hopefully we get a few more.  Remember one of my posts from a couple months ago about a potential Kevin James movie where he plays a mixed martial arts fighter (here)?  Looks like it's go time - and the movie is currently called "Here Comes the Boom" and they're filming in Quincy.

The city has reached an agreement with Columbia Pictures to rent out the old Quincy High School building for a movie shoot.

The deal, signed by Koch and Columbia Pictures Industries Inc. of California, calls for the city to receive $80,000 in rental fees for use of the old high school from Feb. 2 until Aug. 26. Koch will earmark the $80,000 to benefit the school department’s music program, Walker said.


I couldn't find anything on the movie in IMDB, but I pulled this from my Dec post

According to The Wrap, “James will play a physics teacher whose school is facing drastic budget cuts. In order to earn money to save his best friend’s job and the music program that his students hold dear, he moonlights as an MMA fighter, and ultimately winds up doing battle in the UFC.”

Sounds amusing.  Perhaps it'll end up another surprise hit like Paul Blart did.

    sounds like some "background artists" need to keep a bit more mum on the locations.
