Hollywood comes to Dover

Posted by Ralph Ranalli October 19, 2007 10:31 AM


Hollywood location scouts have set their eyes on the intersection of Springdale Avenue and Farm Street in Dover for a country road scene and another scene for the upcoming horror file "The Box" starring Cameron Diaz.

The production, directed by Richard Kelly, is also asking to shoot at Baggs Field, according to Police Chief Joseph G. Griffin, who brought the filmmakers' request before the board of selectmen. The production must get town approval to film at night and to film at Baggs Field, which is conservation property.

Board chairwoman Kathleen Weld asked that the location scout come before the board at its Nov. 1, 2007 meeting to address concerns over noise, lighting and logistics of the proposed shoots.
