They may be “untouchable,” but a star-studded Hollywood cast will be extremely visible when they soon come to Aston to film the new blockbuster Untouchable at Sun Center Studios.
Nicole Kidman, Philadelphia’s own Kevin Hart, and Breaking Bad actor Bryan Cranston headline the upcoming Weinstein Company production directed by Neil Burger, according to a Daily Times report by Kathleen Carey.
The Hollywood ilm aims to remake a French movie called The Intouchables from 2011 that has already earned Weinstein $426 million. It “tells the true story of a wealthy quadriplegic who was injured in an accident and hires an unemployed man with a criminal record to be his live-in caregiver,” the article explains.
Lured by the state’s 25 percent transferable tax credit, filming is due in February and March at Sun Center Studios and locations within the Philadelphia area.
