Crews with the Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz spy-comedy "Knight & Day," formerly
known as "Wichita," set up shop outside of the Jacob Wirth Restaurant located at 31
Stuart St. in Boston's Theatre District.
Based on the production signs outside of the restaurant, filming is slotted to kick off
in the late hours of Wednesday, Oct. 21 and continue until Thursday, Oct. 22.
A Boston favorite since 1868, Jacob Wirth is an authentic German restaurant and beer
hall that attracts a cross-section of regulars and theater-going tourists. During
filming, the old-school haunt is closed.
In "Knight & Day," Cruise and Diaz have a glamorous and sometimes deadly
adventure, where nothing and no one--even the now fugitive couple--are what they
Amid shifting alliances and unexpected betrayals, they race across the globe, with
their survival ultimately hinging on the battle of truth versus trust. "Knight & Day" is
slotted to hit theaters on July 2, 2010.
Co-stars include Peter Sarsgaard (“An Education”) as a federal agent relentlessly
pursuing the couple, Viola Davis (“Doubt”) as a CIA director trying to decipher the true
purpose of their high-wire activities, Paul Dano (“There Will Be Blood”) as an eccentric
genius behind a revolutionary technology, and Olivier Martinez (“Unfaithful”) as a
ruthless arms manufacturer. Co-starring are Maggie Grace (“Taken”) and Marc Blucas
(“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”).
