On September 26, EnterpriseNews.com reported that Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz‘s untitled film project temporarily known as Wichita had just finished filming a scene in Bridgewater, MA. The production crew shot the simulation of a Boeing 727 plane crash in a Cumberland Farms cornfield early Friday morning. Despite a neighborhood notification that the “firebomb” blast would occur between midnight and 4am, the big bang didn’t take place until 5:28am. More than 100 residents parked their cars in fields off of Summer Street to witness the explosion.
But Wichita‘s affair with Massachusetts isn’t exclusively on the South Shore; according to a September 17 article on The Boston Globe Online, the flick just finished up a week of filming on Windsor Street in Somerville–the industrial area adjoining East Cambridge.
Wichita‘s stars have been enjoying the first days of fall in our beloved Bean. On September 25, the Boston Herald Inside Track reported that Diaz was spotted buying some cigs at Harrison Avenue’s Bostonian Market. Before you assault that long, cool woman with anti-smoking statistics, be sure to ask for her autograph.
Diaz and Cruise were also spotted filming on Congress Street in Boston on Monday. Check out the video below to catch HEC’s roving reporter Mary Pierce on location.
