Two Local Stars Take Over Beloved Boston Bakery Bova’s To Film Movi
Oh, and if you’re thinking: “I’ll just order stuff online”? Forget it.
The bakery also announced any online orders won’t be shipped until March 27.
So what’s this movie about?
According to Deadline.com, “The Instigators” follows two thieves who go on the run with one of their therapists after a robbery goes awry.
It’s not clear when the film will be released.
Deadline also said the movie is an Apple Original Films project. It is produced by Damon and Ben Affleck (THE OG AFFLECK. sorry CASEY), their Artists Equity production company.
That production company just completed its first film, “Air“. That stars both Damon and Ben Affleck. As it should be.
“Air” hits theaters nationwide on April 5 and then Amazon Prime (for those who never want to leave their house.)

FYI: “Air” follows the history of shoe salesman Sonny Vaccaro, and how he led Nike in its pursuit of the greatest athlete in the history of basketball: Michael Jordan.
As for Bova’s, the Bova family has owned and operated the beloved bakery since since 1926. They whip up and ship out Italian specialty cookies, cannolis, pastries and pies, along with warm, fresh-baked Italian bread.
Meanwhile, the South Boston apartment building featured in the 1997 film “Good Will Hunting” now has a unit available for rent.
