“The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” Filming on Ave B for the Next Week
Lower Alphabet City is in for a sour-tasting treat of epic proportions. Well, maybe that’s a bit drastic, but a feature flick is set to occupy Avenue B near 2nd and 3rd Streets for the next ten days. Culprit is that dual-perspective tale The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. Production crews will line the area to capture interior and exterior scenes in the immediate vicinity.
A “his” and “hers” version of the film will explore each half the story, focusing on the relationship of James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain during a difficult time in their marriage. He’s a restaurant owner, she’s going back to school. Other actors starring in the double-feature include Isabelle Huppert, Viola Davis, William Hurt, Nina Arianda, Ciaran Hinds, Bill Hader and Jess Weixler.
