A community meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 19, 6:30pm at the Nazzaro Center, 30 N. Bennet St. to discuss the upcoming filming of “What’s Your Number?” in the North End. The movie’s producers have created a site plan shown below (click to enlarge).
Nan Morales is the Executive Producer that will be presenting at the meeting. The movie is using the State’s film incentives and has chosen to have its two main characters “living” in the North End. Specifically, the movie has renovated an apartment at 14 Cooper Street (i.e., the “set”). Most of the outdoor filming will be “walking and talking.” There are no car chases or shooting scenes planned.
Filming is scheduled for Wednesday, May 26th and Thursday, May 27th. The movie currently has permission to shoot until from 7am to 11pm, but is asking to film to 2am. Night street scenes are an important part of the film, according to producers. Regarding local job creation, of the approximately 150 people on set, 110 are from Boston.
The movie production will be providing parking vouchers to make up for lost and restricted street access. All interested residents are encouraged to attend Wednesday’s meeting for more information.
