'Pink Panther 2' transforms Boston into Paris
Steve Martin stars in the made-in-Boston sequel, "The Pink Panther 2," hitting theaters Friday, Feb 6.
Following the formula of the string of less-than-stellar locally-shot films--like "The Women," "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" and "Bride Wars"--the film was made in the Hub to take advantage of our state's insanely low tax breaks ... but set in another city.
Get this, "Pink Panther 2" attempts to transform Boston into Paris. How do you say 'stinks' in French?
In the flick, Martin's Jacques Clouseau teams up with a squad of bumbling International detectives in an attempt to stop a globe-trotting thief who specializes in stealing historical artifacts.
"Pink Panther 2" was shot in Boston, Chelsea, Bedford, Westwood and Winchester.
