Check it, folks. These links don’t lie:
In case you don’t know why this news is extraordinary, This Side of the Truth created all the buzz this past spring when Brit director and the film’s chief funny man Ricky Gervais chose to shoot his film right in the heart of DTL (with some shots in Andover and Boston).
Here is an on-the-scene report that took place with filming began, courtesy of WCVB Channel 5 (as seen on YouTube):

The Lowell Film Collaborative was there during shooting, of course, and rumor has it that LFC co-founder Brett Cromwell was selected as an official extra for the film. (Hey! The rumor is true, my friends!)
If anyone reading this knows of any official trailers out there for TSOT, please let us know! We’re hoping Mr. C made it into some key scenes.
