“The Company Men” came to Milton Cemetery this morning, with all its Hollywood glitz.
Ben Affleck and John Wells were on the set. The local filming wasn’t a secret – but the time and place had been tucked away until just before the crews arrived.
The cemetery director, Therese Desmond Sills, said the trucks arrived at 4 a.m.
I didn’t get there until just before 9, being a late night person.
The rehearsals continued for some time after I arrived.
Gerard Averill gets credit for selecting Milton Cemetery for the shoot. Averill, who grew up in Milton, moved to LA about 10 years ago. He was on set to oversee the location details. Courtney MacNaught, who still lives in Milton, worked as a consultant in connection with locations.
Watching it all play out was really fun. More to come…
