FRAMINGHAM – The Netflix production of Don’t Look Up, a film staring Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, along with Meryl Streep, is filming in Framingham again.
The star-studded project which also includes Ariana Grande, Cate Blanchett and Matthew Perry, was filming in a Butterworth Park neighborhood back in November 2020.
The movie is a dark comedy, directed by Adam McKay, set to shoot all over Massachusetts. In it, two astronomers, played by Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio, must convince the world about the dangers of a massive meteorite headed towards Earth.
The scenes being filmed today in North Framingham may include a helicopter and gun shots, according to residents who were notified of the filming.
Scenes have already been filmed at South Station in Boston.
The production has been trying to keep all filming locations quiet due to COVID-19 concerns. Filming is expected to continue through this month.
Others in the cast include Jonah Hill, Himesh Patel, Timothée Chalamet, and Rob Morgan.
The testing site for Netflix created some confusion this morning as people thought the set up in the St. George Church parking was possibly for a new COVID-19 testing site in Framingham.
Netflix is “using the lot while filming nearby, it is only for one day.”
“It appears there is confusion because there is a sign “Testing” put up by Netflix. Apparently, the signs are just for their crew and extras directing them to parking areas and testing locations since they have to be tested before going on set. The parish is not being used for testing or vaccinations sites for the general public,” said a spokesperson for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston.
