Lisa Cholodenko to shoot HBO miniseries 0n Cape Ann

Hollywood is headed back to the North Shore. The coastal community, which played host in recent years to “The Proposal,” starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, Adam Sandler et al., who shot two “Grown Ups” movies there, and Larry David’s “Clear History,” is back in business with “Olive Kitteridge.” We’re told the four-hour HBO miniseries directed by Lisa Cholodenko will be setting up shop on Cape Ann soon. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Elizabeth Strout (and adapted by playwright Jane Anderson), the series will star Oscar winner Frances McDormand and nominee Richard Jenkins.
