Film Locations

Later this month, camera's will be rolling in two south shore communities. Last night, Lunenburg council gave approval to an agreement with the company involved with a 16-million dollar production of Moby Dick. And with tourism numbers down somewhat this summer, Mayor Lawrence Mawhinney says this shoulder-season event will be good for Lunenburg. Filming is expected to take place during the week of September 20th. Mayor Mawhinney says the shoot will involve several areas of Old Town which is standing in for Nantucket. They plan to film around several older buildings in Lunenburg. The German/Canadian production will also be filming in Shelburne and Malta. William Hurt is one of the stars whose name has been mentioned in connection with the film.
