'The Company Men' filming at Daisy Buchanan's bar

Crews for the "The Company Men," the made-in-Boston film by director John Wells and starring Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones and Kevin Costner, are slotted to film on Wednesday, May 27 at Daisy Buchanan's pub located located at 240 Newbury St. on the corner of Fairfield.

Production is scheduled between 5 a.m. and 2 p.m. and parking restrictions will be in effect on Newbury and Fairfield Streets for most of the day.

The subterranean Newbury Street bar and restaurant, named after the flapper heroine of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby," packs in the frat boy crowd and its business-suit wearing alumni.

As previously reported in Loaded Gun, "The Company Men" follows a year in the life of three men trying to survive a round of corporate downsizing. Affleck plays a corporate bigwig whose six-figure salary is suddenly cut after he gets a pink slip.

Before taking over Newbury Street on Wednesday, crews are scheduled to film at a private residence on Crowninshield Road in Marblehead on Tuesday, May 26. The home, with a stunning waterfront view, is the residence of Brian and Nancy McCarthy of Kelly's Roast Beef fame.

On Tuesday, June 2, Affleck is scheduled to make a return visit to the Gannon Municipal Golf Course in Lynn to finish scenes he shot on Wednesday, April 8.
