Elm Bank Reservation in Wellesley and Dover was filling up its meadow with vehicles on Friday morning for what appears to be the filming of a movie or TV series. There’s also been action this week at Christ Lutheran Church on Union Street in Natick, where grip and lighting trucks have been parked.
We initially suspected they might be filming the HBO Max series Julia, about chef Julia Child, thinking it had perhaps migrated from Framingham, where filming has recently taken place. Among the cast members: Sarah Lancashire, Bebe Neuwirth, David Hyde Pierce, and Isabella Rossellini.
But subsequent sleuthing from friends and neighbors unearthed that filming, in Dover and Natick, is for a Netflix sci-fi drama starring Halle Berry called The Mothership. A commercial was also being filmed at Elm Bank.
This wouldn’t be the first time filming has taken place on the grounds of Elm Bank. Past productions have included Catherine Keener’s We Don’t Belong Here and the star studded (Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Emma Stone & Michael Douglas) Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.
