    'Gone, Baby, Gone' gets Morgan Freeman - Boston Herald 5/20/06

    Ben there! Actor schmoozes in Southie

    “Gone Baby Gone” director Ben Affleck, who begins shooting his feature flick on Monday on Boston’s waterfront, was in Southie yesterday doing some pre-production at a West Broadway bar.

    Ben, sporting a scruffy beard and a Red Sox knit cap, hobnobbed with starstruck locals who gathered on the street in front of Croke Park, aka Whitey’s. He also posed for photos with the Burger King gang, who let Ben have it his way during his brief visit to the fast-food joint.


    Last night, the local cast and crew of “Gone Baby Gone” were in high spirits at Felt where Ben & Co. threw a kick-off bash - before it’s time to get serious!


    “Gone Baby Gone,” starring Ben’s bro Casey Affleck, Michelle Monaghan, Ed Harris and Morgan Freeman, is based on Boston mystery man Dennis Lehane’s novel about a pair of Hub private eyes on the trail of a kidnapper.


    Affleck, who won an Oscar with Matt Damon for their “Good Will Hunting” screenplay, also wrote the “Gone” screenplay. The Miramax flick marks Ben’s big screen directorial debut.

    Freeman gets 'Gone, Baby' for Miramax


    Morgan Freeman

    By Tatiana Siegel

    Morgan Freeman is in final negotiations to join the cast of "Gone, Baby, Gone" for Miramax Films.

    Ben Affleck is making his feature directorial debut on the film, which is based on the fourth novel in Dennis Lehane's Kenzie and Gennaro detective series.

    Freeman will play a police captain in the Boston-set crime drama that revolves around two private eyes who investigate a missing child in a working-class neighborhood. Michelle Monaghan, Casey Affleck and Ed Harris already have boarded the project, which is shooting in Boston. Oscar-winning scribe Ben Affleck penned the screenplay.

    Miramax's Keri Putnam and Kristin Jones are shepherding the project for the Disney specialty label.

    Freeman recently signed on to star in Lakeshore Entertainment's "The Feast of Love," which is based on a Charles Baxter novel. The four-time Oscar nominee nabbed a best supporting actor statue in 2005 for his role in Lakeshore's "Million Dollar Baby." His recent credits include "Lucky Number Slevin," "The Big Bounce" and "Bruce Almighty." Freeman also is reprising his role as God in the "Almighty" sequel, "Evan Almighty."

    He is repped by WMA.

    Affleck thanks Bostonians after shoot

    have spent the summer near Harvard Square.

    BOSTON (AP) — Ben Affleck finished shooting his film Gone, Baby, Gone and thanked residents for their support during the nearly three-month production in and around the city.
    "This is a great place to shoot movies," Affleck, who is making his directorial debut, told reporters on Saturday. "We've had an enormous amount of cooperation."

    The Cambridge native, who won an Oscar for co-writing goodwill Hunting with hometown friend Matt Damon, shot his new film in Boston, Chelsea, and Quincy.
    "There were a lot of people who had to find new parking spaces, who had to go around a lot of detours," he said.

    Affleck, actress wife Jennifer Garner and baby Violet have been living near Harvard Square for the summer. He said it's been a nice break from Hollywood.

    The film, expected in theaters next year, stars younger brother Casey Affleck, Michelle Monaghan, Ed Harris, and Morgan Freeman. It's based on a novel by Dennis Lehane, who also wrote novel-turned-film Mystic River.

    Boston is no longer an expensive and indifferent city in which to shoot, Affleck said. The state's new tax breaks decrease the cost.

    "Companies thinking about coming here definitely should," he said. "They'll be met with enthusiasm, and they'll get to shoot in a place that is really unique and distinct... And I want to thank Boston for making that possible."
