Hollywood stars block Main St. as movie films in Milton


Published November 17, 2020 at 9:01 am

So now we know why Main St. E. and Mill St. in Milton will be closing intermittently the rest of the week.

Hollywood stars Kevin Hart, Woody Harrelson, Kaley Cuoco, Ellen Barkin and Melanie Liburd are in town filming a movie.

The team of celebrities has been spotted almost everywhere the past week filming in different locations across Southern Ontario including Brampton and Toronto.

Yesterday it was Milton’s turn as the filming literally brought downtown Milton to a halt as crews set up and the stars did their thing.

The movie, with the working title The Man From Toronto, is about a New York loser (Hart) who comes to town and gets mistaken for an international assassin.

Hart rose to fame as a stand-up comedian. His film roles include The Upside, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, The Wedding Ringer and Central Intelligence. Cuoco is most famous for her long-run in The Big Bang Theory and Harrelson played Woody on the television series Cheers before launching his film career that includes several blockbusters such as White Men Can’t Jump, Natural Born Killers, The Hunger Games and Zombieland.

Filming is expected to continue in Milton at various times the rest of this week.
