Crews with "The Social Network," the partially
made-in-Boston flick based on local author Ben
Mezrich's tell-all book about the founding of
Facebook in a Harvard dorm, will film a
late-night scene kicking off at 3 p.m. Thursday,
Oct. 29 in Medford. Casting scouts are still on
the hunt for college student types between 18
and 23-years-old for the overnight shoot that
sounds like an off-campus party.
When filming ends around 7 a.m. Friday, Oct.
30, crews with "The Social Network" plan to
wrap in Boston and head to the Homewood
campus of Johns Hopkins in Baltimore,
Maryland. They'll set up on Sunday, Nov. 1 and
shoot two scenes on campus beginning Monday,
Nov. 2 and Tuesday, Nov. 3 between 6-10 p.m.
Ben Affleck's "The Town" has wrapped in the
North End and is filming scenes in Charlestown
on the corner of Monument Square and Tremont
Street next to the Bunker Hill Monument for the
rest of the week. Word is that crews plan to
return on Monday, Nov. 2 to Howard Johnson
Boston located at 1271 Boylston St. where set
designers transformed the Fenway Park hotel into
the fictional Van Ness Motor Inn.
On Tuesday, Nov. 3 and Wednesday, Nov. 4, the
blue-collar heist film "The Town" will return to
Melrose where crews plan to film at a former
MASSBank branch located at 476 Main St. and W.
