Bernie, the latest from director Richard Linklater, begins filming in Austin, TX next week. Jack Black and Texas native Matthew McConaughey star in the movie based on “Midnight in the Garden of East Texas,” a Texas Monthly article written by Skip Hollandsworth, who co-wrote the screenplay with Linklater.

The movie is about a bizarre mystery involving Bernhardt “Bernie” Tiede, an assistant funeral home director in Carthage, Texas who admitted to murdering Marjorie Nugent, who was “the richest widow in an eccentric town full of rich widows.” Shirley MacLane has signed on to play Nugent.

On Monday, Bernie will be shooting at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa in Lost Pines, TX.

If you spot the cast of Bernie in Austin this fall, let us know about it at olv@onlocationvacations.com!

Actually, they’re filming mostly in Bastrop. Just spent two days on set this week filming the trial scene at the courthouse in Bastrop.

Bernie was being filmed in downtown Georgetown today, 10/22. When Matthew left the location tonight we were very dissappointed that he did not wave or even look toward the small group of us standing around waiting for even a glimpse of him. They said that today was the only day of shooting in Georgetown.

My son Taylor and I were able to be extras in the movie today shot on Main St. in Bastrop. We were not supposed to be in it but we were on our way home and saw the film crew, so we parked around the back and walked around to where they were. We walked right onto the set without knowing and the film director said we could stay and be in the scene! Jack Black looked at Taylor twice and Shirley McClaine got out of her car w/ her dog ten feet in front of us.

Carthage, tx is “an eccentric town full of rich widows” lol. I live in Carthage. I thought we were a town rich in oil and gas. Or the best small town in Texas, as our sign by the base ball fields says. But no. In this movie we evidently are eccentric and full of rich women with dead husbands. ?
