Tom Hanks was spotted (with a full beard) at Charlie’s Cafe in Ghent, VA yesterday. The actor was in town for Captain Phillips which begins filming in and around Virginia Beach today.
This is the third location for the movie which has already spent time shooting in Massachusetts and Europe.
The movie is based on the 2009 hijacking of the Maersk-Alabama.
On their Facebook page, Charlie’s wrote that Hanks ordered the “Granby Platter,” which they are now calling the “Tom Hanks Granby Platter.”
Be on the look out for Tom around Virginia Beach and be sure to let us know if you spot him hanging out around town, or filming his new movie, via email at [email protected] or in a comment below!
UPDATE: According to Andy Edmunds, interim director of the Virginia Film Office, “local filming for “Captain Phillips” will take place entirely in, or near, Virginia Beach.” Some filming is taking place on “open Water” and on “property is near the Oceanfront and south of the resort strip.”
