Tom Cruise's 'Wichita' stops traffic in South Boston

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz stop traffic Thursday, Oct. 8 filming a scene in the South Boston waterfront district for the made-in-Boston spy flick "Wichita."

Ronda Morra, a Loaded Gun Boston reader, captured all of the action here which included Cruise jumping from a moving car and Cameron Diaz in the back seat of a black sedan.

As previously reported, crews are hashing out an elaborate stunt involving a vehicle careening off of a bridge slotted to begin filming this weekend.

"They're doing a lot of construction in the center of Charlestown's Rutherford Avenue," says Rod T., a Loaded Gun Boston reader.

Filming is slotted for Saturday, Oct. 10 from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m, Sunday, Oct. 11 from 6 a.m to 1 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 17 from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

According to a memo sent to Charlestown-area residents, crews plan to shut down Rutherford Avenue from Sullivan Square to Austin Street during filming. Also, the sidewalks around the site will be closed off to all foot traffic.

The filming crew is slotted to set up a production area in back of Rutherford Avenue next to the fence along Spice Court.

The untitled "Wichita" project follows Cruise as a secret agent who pops in and out of the life of a single woman played by Diaz.

Principal filming for the made-in-Boston spy flick "Wichita," starring Cruise, Diaz, Paul Dano, Maggie Grace and Marc Blucas, kicked off on Tuesday, Sept. 15 at the Worcester Regional Airport.

A notice was never sent to residents of the Charlestown neighborhood. Furthermore, it stalled traffic throughout the entire town for the entire weekend. Residents were completely unaware of the schedule of the Wichita film.
