Real Men

Shooting stars

Boston Herald – Guns were blazing in Brighton yesterday where the stars of two set-in-Boston flicks – “Real Men Cry” and “The Lonely Maiden” – played shoot ’em up for the cameras.

We hear “Maiden’s” Christopher Walken, Morgan Freeman and William H. Macy staged their battle in the old High Output soundstage on Western Avenue. Meanwhile across the way, “Real Men Cry” stars Ethan Hawke and Mark Ruffalo traded simulated gunfire on a soundstage fashioned out of the vacant K Mart.

At lunchtime, both crews broke at the same time and chowed on their catered meal in separate areas inside the old Frugal Fannies. What a deal!

The only place in the retail plaza not getting shot up? The Shaw’s supermarket – which had signs warning customers of the two-day Tinseltown shooting gallery across the way!

“The Lonely Maiden” crew expects to wrap on Thursday while “Real Men Cry,” the biopic of Southie bad boy Brian Goodman, will be outta here on Friday.
