Patriots Day, the much-talked-about feature film that will chronicle the events surrounding the Boston Marathon bombings, is filming in Framingham this week. Specifically, filmmakers are shooting a recreation of the apprehension of convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in Watertown on April 19, 2013.

Onlookers watch from a distance on April 20, 2016 as a film crew works on production of Patriots Day, a feature film about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. The scenes were being filmed on Harrison Street in Framingham, and will reportedly depict the apprehension of bomber suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in a residential neighborhood of Watertown.

CBS Films originally intended to film in Watertown. However, after some residents objected, Town Manager Michael Driscoll announced that it would “not in the best interest of Watertown.”

An SUV entered the active film set, too. Onlookers who were hoping to see a celebrity speculated that the vehicle was probably carrying one of the film’s stars, possibly Kevin Bacon or John Goodman. Mark Wahlberg had been previously seen arriving and departing the set in a black Cadillac Escalade.

The depicted scenes appeared eerily similar to the events of April 19, 2013.
