Posts Tagged ‘Trust the movie’

The first of several movies shot in Plymouth last year which created a lot of buzz around town, Trust starring Clive Owen and Catherine Keener, returns to Plymouth this week.  The movie, about a family nearly torn apart by an on-line predator, will run at the Penn Theater this week.

I’ve seen the trailer and it looks good.  I’m not so certain it is good for younger kids to see, but it looks like it’s a good reminder for parents and older kids.  As to its local angle, just from the trailer I recognized a few places from town.

Check out the Penn’s website for showtime details.

Thanks to Marti Erickson Chamberlain for allowing me to post photos she took of the outdoor set of Trust.  Those of you familiar with Plymouth will recognize this area as Penniman Street, just west of Harvey Street.

David Schwimmer has been eating at Burger Spot.  *thumbs up*  Of course, there’s other good information in this article.

Trust is the name of the movie that Schwimmer, best known for his role as Ross on the television sitcom Friends, has been directing in Plymouth and other area locales in recent days. The movie, a family drama, stars Clive Owen, Catherine Keener and Noah Emmerich; the writer is Andy Bellin.Schwimmer and his cast and crew were on Church Street last week and on Forest Avenue on Monday. Shooting began in Michigan Nov. 5 and is scheduled to be completed in mid-December, said publicist Cid Swank.

Trust is believed to be the biggest Hollywood production with a Plymouth setting since the 1980s newspaper drama Word of Honor, starring Ron Silver and the late Karl Malden.

“It creates economic opportunity,” said Wes Graff, executive director of the Plymouth Community Chamber of Commerce. “Obviously, it’s sent some money” into the local economy. Graff said he spoke with an assistant on the set who told him 60 percent of the film’s crew is from Michigan.

Schwimmer, who is directing his second film, has been seen around Plymouth several times, including twice at the Burger Spot on Forest, where he had lunch on Monday and one day last week.

“Kind of a quiet guy,” said Burger Spot owner Mike Schmidt. Schwimmer had two burgers and a large order of fries on each visit, Schmidt said. He ate alone, reading and checking messages on his phone, Schmidt said, although he was briefly accompanied by a woman on his first visit.

“Still waiting for Clive Owen or Catherine Keener,” Schmidt said with a smile.

Schwimmer seemed friendly and approachable, Schmidt said, although he pretty much kept to himself. On his Monday visit, he was recognized and attracted a few curious people, he said, including one woman who spoke with him briefly, Schmidt said.

Graff said Schwimmer’s interest in Plymouth speaks well of the impression the city makes on visitors.

“The quality of what they consider to be scenic, the older homes, obviously plays well with this kind of film,” he said.

A made-for-cable movie, Christmas in Pittsburgh, is also scheduled to be partly filmed in Plymouth, beginning next month, Graff said.

There has been a lot of fun and excitement associated with the filming of Trust, the David Schwimmer movie starring Clive Owen and Catherine Keener.   I don’t know too many specifics, but quite a few scenes have been shot on the streets of our little town.

There are some other web sources regarding this, particularly some cool stuff on Facebook.  I’m hoping to gain permission to share some of that information here (since it was gathered by someone else’s hard work.)

UPDATE:  As of about 8 p.m. today (Wed., 11/25), it looked like there was shooting taking place in The Gathering.  The intersection of Union and Penniman, and in front of the Penn, were closed to traffic.

Friends of mine have already gone downtown to do some stargazing and they’re posting pictures on Facebook.  Pretty exciting to have a film crew right in the heart of the city.
