Those movie tax credits continue to pay dividends locally. Starting Monday, August 7th, Amy Schumer is set to start filming in the South End for her upcoming comedy, “I Feel Pretty”. Residents have already received notices that the movie shoot will take over Tremont Street between Union Park and West Brookline Street (so if you’re driving avoid that section of Tremont). The production will also return to Boston on August 18th to film additional scenes at a store located on Union Park Street. My guess would be the new Walden Local Butcher shop that is yet to open and currently an empty space – ideal for a shoot (but that is only a guess).
“I Feel Pretty” is about a woman who starts acting extremely confident after suffering a head injury. Model Emily Ratajkowski and actress Michelle Williams, join Schumer in the movie that is expected to be released next summer.
