‘Joy’, starring Jennifer Lawrence, filming in North Reading, MA next month


After wrapping in Wilmington, MA later this week, Joy, aka Kay’s Baptism, will be filming in North Reading, MA.

Filming will take place in North Reading, in a garage on Winter Street, on March 2-4, and March 23. Winter Street will be closed at Winter and Main streets and Winter and Park streets during filming from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

The movie is also using a building at 45 Industrial Way in Wilmington for its soundstages throughout filming.

Joy, which chronicles the unlikely rise of Miracle Mop inventor and HSN regular Joy Mangano, stars Jennifer Lawrence, as Mangano, along with Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper.

  1. Just wondering, I’m a client of Boston Casting and haven’t seen any casting calls for Joy…is it a union only shoot, as I’m not a SAG member but have been in several shoots as an extra in the past. Please advise.

  2. I think a good old fashion BARBERSHOP scene would be great for this movie. If any one involved with the movie sees this and is interested in putting a barber shop in the movie. Call Tim ODea at ODeas barbershop 781 944 0800
