A brief sum of the filming of the major motion picture, "Labor Day," in Acton – Summer 2012.
Well, many of use were taken aback when we heard a major motion picture starting Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin and Jame Van Der Beek, directed by Jason Reitman, was going to be filming in Acton this summer.
- In mid-May, Town Manager Steve Ledoux annouced a major motion picture was going to be filmed in Acton this summer – a production crew picked 12 Piper Road for the home of Kate Winslet's character and the acton Senior Center is going to be use for some scenes.
- The movie is based on the 2009 book by Joyce Maynard, "Labor Day." Click here to read the plot.
- It's a once and a lifetime chance to read the book first before the movie being filmed in your town is released.
- Although it is a closed set, which means no interviews with the cast and crew, according to a few neighbors around the area of the shoot, they shared some basic information about their street turning into a Hollywood set.
