It’s a full circle moment for Matt Damon. 26 years after the premiere of Good Will Hunting, which was the Affleck brothers and Damon’s first major trio film, the boys are back in town. It’s perfect timing as Damon’s Southie apartment from Good Will Hunting just hit the market, so maybe he’ll stop by for some nostalgia.
Regardless, these Dunkin enthusiasts turned Oscar-winners will be hanging around the North End and other areas of Boston from March 20-25. Their new film, “The Instigators,” operating under the working title “Quincy” will film both interior and exterior scenes at Bova’s Bakery in the North End on March 22. According to a flyer outside of the bakery, filming will run from 10 AM to 11 PM that day.
It is the first time for Bova’s Bakery, the North End’s 24-hour bakery, to close its doors in 97 years. Filming will also close areas of Salem and Prince Streets from 8 AM through midnight on March 22 for this crime action drama. “The film follows two thieves who must go on the run with the help of one of their therapists after a robbery goes awry,” according to Production List.
The film will also be produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s new production company, Artists’ Equity, which will release its first film, “Air” on April 5.
