It's official - Hollywood is coming to Acton this summer. From June 25 to August 22, 2012, production crews for the film "Labor Day" will be renting out the parking lot of Honeywell Sensing & Control on Discovery Way, storing their film equipment there and shooting at locations on Piper Road and Audubon Drive.
Labor Day, directed by Jason Reitman will star Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin. The production crew picked out 12 Piper Road as the home of Winslet's character and home renovation will start taking place on the inside of their kitchen as soon as next Tuesday.
Winslet's character also teaches an exercise class to seniors in the film and the production company scouted the Acton Senior Center as a suitable place to film the appropriate scenes.
According to Town Manager Steve Ledoux, the Town, police officials and the production crew will be working together in the coming weeks to devise a traffic and crowd control plan.
