September 28, 2007 - The upcoming Jake Gyllenhaal-Tobey Maguire movie Brothers is reportedly looking to film in either Boston, Massachusetts or New Mexico, according to a new interview with the film's screenwriter David Benioff.
The Troy and Wolverine scribe informed The Boston Herald, "A lot of people in the business are really starting to talk about Boston."
"I was just talking about where we're going to shoot the movie and Massachusetts is one of the possibilities," Benioff said. "The other possible place is New Mexico. But everyone would rather come to Boston than New Mexico. Sorry, New Mexico."
The paper reports that Brothers will start filming this November under the direction of Jim Sheridan and that location scouting in Boston has already taken place.
Another Hollywood production reportedly mulling Boston as a location is The Box, a horror movie set to star Cameron Diaz and to be directed by Richard Kelly. The Boston Herald adds that, should The Box come to Boston, it would lens this fall.
