April Showers Bring May…Snow? If You Were in Quincy, The Answer is Yes!
Matt Damon and Casey Affleck were seen filming in Quincy. Matt Damon and Casey Affleck were spotted filming scenes for a new movie on Wollaston Beach in Quincy. They’ve been filming for a few weeks for a movie called “The Instigators” about two thieves who go on the run after a botched robbery attempt. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are both producing the project being made for Apple Original Films. No word when the movie will be released. This is the same movie that shut down the popular bakery Bova in the North End back in March and some car racing scenes on Storrow Drive in the Back Bay. Directed by Doug Liman, The Instigators is co-produced by Damon and Ben Affleck and also stars Hong Chau, Paul Walter Hauser and Michael Stuhlbarg.
You’ll remember too there was an incident back in March of a truck that took down a utility pole in Quincy. That truck was later reported to have been involved in the shooting for The Instigators. The truck was parked in front of Malachy’s Saloon on Granite Street which is a bar that was used to film scenes for the movie. Other than the one little mishap, shooting for the movie has gone pretty smoothly.
Of course this isn’t the first movie Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have been involved in shooting in the Boston area. It’s not even the first movie in general being filmed here, in fact, it seems as if movie productions have picked up significantly in Massachusetts over the years. Apparently there reasons for it including significant tax credits for production companies filming here. There are several movies that have been filmed here, really good movies too. Let’s take a look at ten of those movies. Maybe these will give you an idea of something to watch with mom this weekend.
