Friday, August 02, 2013
The first trailer for the film American Hustle, which was partially filmed in Worcester and was a major boon for the Worcester economy, has been released. The movie stars Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, and is directed by David O. Russell. It is about the FBI's 1970-80 "Abscam" sting operation based out of Long Island. The operation aimed to root out corruption in public office and led to the conviction of a US Senator, a member of the New Jersey Senate, five members of the House of Representatives, an inspector for the Immigration and Naturalization Service, and members of the Philadelphia City Council. Much of the filming in Worcester took place in April on Millbury Street.
