‘Joy’, starring Jennifer Lawrence, will be filming in Wilmington, MA on Feb. 19 – Feb. 26


After confirming David O. Russell’s  next movie Joy will begin filming in Boston this month, we have our first details about exactly where and when the shoot will take place.

According to flyers that were distributed in the neighborhood, Joy will be filming on Federal St in Wilmington, MA on Feb. 19 – Feb. 26. The notice also reveals the movie is filming under the working title Kay’s Baptism.

Joy, which chronicles the unlikely rise of Miracle Mop inventor and HSN regular Joy Mangano, stars Jennifer Lawrence, as Mangano and her American Hustle/Silver Linings Playbook co-stars Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper.

Joy marks the third movie Russell has made in Boston in recent years. American Hustle and The Fighter were both filmed in Massachusetts, too.
