Though it has been reported filming on The Untitled David O. Russell Project wouldn’t begin until Monday, Mar. 18 in Boston, it looks like they might be shooting something today.
We know at least one of the movie’s stars, Bradley Cooper, is already in Boston, where he attended a screening of his new film The Place Beyond The Pines last night and is rumored to be staying at The Four Seasons.
There have also been reports that his co-star, Jeremy Renner, has been spotted around town, too.
The only real evidence we have that filming may be taking place today is a casting call we were forwarded looking for women to appear in an “indoor pool party scene set in the 70s” with availability on Wednesday, Mar. 13 and Friday, Mar. 14, presumably for this film which is also set in the 1970s. But, they could just be doing wardrobe fittings this week for filming taking place on a later date, this is not uncommon.
There have also been Twitter reports of the movie filming at the “new Herald building” and a Bradley Cooper sighting on Boylston St this morning, but neither has been confirmed.
Here’s what else we know so far:
- At some point filming is expected to take place on the 4th Fl at 1 Beacon St (possibly sometime next week).
- The movie’s production office is set up at 70 Fargo St., Ste. 809 Boston, MA 02210 under the name White Dog Productions, LLC. The production also lists the official filming dates for the film as March 18, 2013 through May 19, 2013.
- The movie is also expected to film in New York City at some point during that time period as well.
- The movie will open on Christmas Day (with a limited release on Dec. 13), just in time for awards season.
- Boston Casting is looking for vintage cars for the movie.
The Untitled David O. Russell Project, aka American Bullshit, aka Abscam Project, stars Christian Bale as a financial con-man who was caught by an OTT federal agent, played by Bradley Cooper, along with his girlfriend, played by Amy Adams in the 1970s. The couple was offered a deal provided they help turn the tables on other crooks and shady politicians. They ended up taking on a leader of the New Jersey state assembly, played by Jeremy Renner, among others. Jennifer Lawrence and Louis C.K. have also recently joined the cast.
