Beantown is the Next Hollywood

Just as I predicted, so did the Improper Bostonian in their latest issue: Boston IS the next big Hollywood stopover for the film industry.

In the Improper Speaking column, the twice monthly magazine talks about the three movies currently being filmed in our lovely city. Apparently the new found love for Beantown in Hollywood is due to the success of The Departed and Mayor Menino's great tax breaks, making the city a lot more attractive to potential filmmakers and hotshot producers.

Bachelor No. 2 location manager Greg Chiodo sees more projects on the horizon, adding "people are definitely testing the water and taking advantage of the [tax] program." Which means that in addition to these films--plus Ben Affleck's Gone Baby Gone, the Rock's The Game Plan and Kevin Spacey's 21--you could be seeing a whole lot more of the Bean on the silver screen.
Hopefully we are both right, then maybe I can finally get my wish granted and be an extra in a movie!
