Have you seen Dustin Hoffman or Kathy Bates around Connecticut recently?
It’s not a figment of your imagination. They’re starring in a new film called Boychoir. The film is in production and started shooting in Connecticut in February, according to the state’s film website. The Connecticut shoot is slated to conclude at the end of the month. Crews were at Yale University most recently, according to the New Haven Register.
An 11-year-old boy named Stet (Garrett Wareing) moves east from Texas after his mother dies and joins an all-male choir at school, according to IMDB’s plot description. The choir director recognizes talent in him and challenges him to reach his potential. Hoffman plays Master Carvelle and Bates stars as the headmistress of the school.
Sweet Home Alabama’s Josh Lucas and Glee’s Kevin McHale (Artie) co-star with Bates and Hoffman. McHale will play a character named Wooly and IMDB does not list the role Lucas plays.
