Disney Shooting in Peabody

Tinseltown comes to Peabody!

Looks as if Disney is looking to shoot a movie along Boston's North Shore. Peabody, for those of you not familiar, is a small city about 30 minutes north of Boston known for its large mall, low real estate tax and many political upsets. Disney wants to use an elementary school for a film starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds.

A year or so ago, "The Rock" filmed a movie (The Game Plan) in the recently torn down Jordan Marsh/Macy's building: the future site of Peabody's soon-to-be Nordstrom's.

Thanks to a recent tax credit, Massachusetts has become second in the Top 5 places to shoot within the United States.
