The Patriots Day movie, which will include scenes from the Watertown shootout and manhunt, has started filming, and this week is in Jamaica Plain.
Crews were at Doyle’s restaurant and pub on Washington Street in JP today, and will be shooting there for a few days, according to Jamaica Plain News. Read the whole story here.
The scene being shot at Doyle’s may include police officers. Patriots Day stars Mark Wahlberg as a police officer – a character which is a composite of a few people. His wife will be played by Michelle Monaghan, who appeared in another Boston-area film, “Gone Baby Gone.”
The movie recently added Kevin Bacon as the FBI Special Agent in Charge in Boston. The cast that already includes Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons, who is playing Watertown’s own Sgt. Jeffrey Pugliese who was involved in the shootout with the bombing suspects.
Another Watertown officer, Sgt. Scott MacLellan, will be portrayed in the film. He is being played by Boston-born actor Cliff Moylan, according to IMDB.
