Returning to the scene of the crime where Robert De Niro literally dropped the ball at the Gannon Municipal Golf Course in Lynn before leaving the made-in-Boston film over "creative differences," the "Edge of Darkness" crew is currently filming today with British powerhouse Ray Winstone.
De Niro had signed to play an operative sent to clean up the evidence in the murder of a young female activist. Mel Gibson stars as the victim's father, a homicide detective for the Boston Police Dept. who digs up the many secrets surrounding her death.
Winstone, who was featured in "The Departed" as Mr. French and was last seen in "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," has quietly replaced De Niro after he was last seen shooting a problematic scene at the golf course's 15th hole in early September.
Meanwhile, exterior filming is slotted for South Station (Atlantic Avenue) on Thursday, Oct. 16 and Friday, Oct. 17. There will be additional shooting at Carlton Wharf in East Boston on Wednesday, Oct. 15.
