These movie stars will be seen filming in New Jersey this summer
It’s no secret that New Jersey is getting bigger and bigger for film and television. Lionsgate Studios opening a 500,000 square foot production studio is a pretty big deal. Incentives and tax breaks brought the New Jersey shoot to 11 to put it in “This Is Spinal Tap” terms.
M. Night Shamalayan chose New Jersey to film “Knock at the Cabin” this year in Burlington County. SNL star Pete Davidson was in Denville recently filming the horror movie “The Home.” Uma Thurman and Samuel L. Jackson were recently filming “The Kill Room” in Jersey City.
Have your selfie skills ready if you come across them, because Mark Wahlberg and Halle Berry are heading to New Jersey this summer. Filming for the film “Our Man From Jersey” is scheduled in Hudson and Passaic counties. It is said that the week of July 10, they will be filming in Kearney, Jersey City, Paterson and Bayonne.
Halle Berry is no stranger to the Garden State having performed and directed “Bruised” in Atlantic City and Newark in 2019.
What will “Our Man From Jersey” be about? Here is the plot synopsis from imdb.com:
“Mike, a down-to-earth construction worker from New Jersey, is quickly thrust into the world of super spies and secret agents when his high school ex-girlfriend Roxanne recruits him for a high-stakes US intelligence assignment. “
HATE when this happens!
It’s listed as an action/thriller and not a comedy, so hopefully they don’t treat a construction worker played by Wahlberg as a stereotypical moron. Hollywood sometimes likes to do that with characters from New Jersey, but we know better.
The opinions expressed in the above post are those of New Jersey 101.5 talk show host Jeff Deminski only.
