Director David O. Russell's star-studded new movie is reportedly filming in Medford this week.

Several residents reported on Twitter that streets in the area of Doonan Street were blocked off for filming Monday, and that signs indicated they would be filming on the residential street until Wednesday.

The film is based on the "Abscam" FBI public corruption investigation in the 1970s and 1980s that led to the arrest of several US congressmen. It has been shooting at various locations in Boston for the last couple of weeks.

The cast includes Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, and Bradley Cooper.
