Dover's Hollywood hopes come crashing down

Posted by Ralph Ranalli November 11, 2007 06:11 AM


Dover's Board of Selectmen last week unanimously voted down a Hollywood production company's request to shoot a huge nighttime crash scene on four major roads.

Location scouts thought the town would be a perfect setting for the upcoming Cameron Diaz horror film, "The Box," from Director Richard Kelly, but the selectmen cite the potential curiosity factor as a reason to turn down the request.

Location scouts had stated in a letter that set up would have started during peak traffic time and the shoot would have been on Springdale Avenue, Farm Street, Main Street, and Pegan Lane. The crash scene would have involved over 60 people.
