Depending on which exit you get off the New Jersey Turnpike, you might spot two mega stars filming their latest project.
Halle Berry and Mark Wahlberg are just two of the big names in Hollywood making up an all-star cast in the upcoming movie, “Our Man From Jersey.”
Filming for the Netflix spy thriller is set to kick off in and around New Jersey this summer, with Jersey City, Bayonne, Kearny and Paterson all set to welcome stars at some point in July, according to NJ.com.
This won’t be the first time Berry has teamed up with Netflix. The star made her directorial debut last year with the streaming service’s “Bruised.”
She shot the fight movie in Newark and Atlantic City in 2019, so she’s no stranger to showing off her acting skills on Jersey soil.
Some scenes from the upcoming project – directed by “Ballers” creator Julian Farino – were also filmed in London, England earlier this year.
Other notable cast members include Oscar winner JK Simmons, “The First Lady” star Jackie Earle Haley, “Suicide Squad” star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jessica De Gouw and Alice Lee.
According to IMDB, the film is about Mike (Wahlberg), who is a down-to-earth construction worker from Jersey.
He is “quickly propelled into the world of super spies and secret agents when his high school ex-girlfriend Roxanne (Berry) recruits him for a high-stakes US intelligence assignment.”
The film is co-produced by Wahlberg and “Ballers” producer Stephen Levinson, according to NJ.com.
