Tom Cruise's 'Knight & Day' film wraps in Boston

Crews with the made-in-Boston spy flick "Knight & Day" wrapped filming in Boston earlier this week and have set up shop in Sevilla on Monday, Nov. 16. Shooting is slotted to continue in Spain for three weeks.

Now that the Boston-area filming has ended, the James Mangold action comedy is also scheduled to shoot in Salzburg, Austria as well as a tropical destination rumored to be Hawaii.

Cruise, who reportedly turned up for the memorial service at the John Joseph Moakley Courthouse for Church of Scientology attorney Earle Cooley, was scheduled to film scenes in Salzburg beginning Thursday, Nov. 19, however, there's been a bit of a snag after Austrian filmmakers protested a $448,455 incentive greenlit for the "Knight & Day" film from Salzburg authorities. In response to the backlash, the Austrian shoot has been cut from three weeks to seven days.

In "Knight & Day," Cruise and Cameron Diaz have a glamorous and sometimes deadly adventure, where nothing and no one--even the now fugitive couple--are what they seem.

Amid shifting alliances and unexpected betrayals, they race across the globe, with their survival ultimately hinging on the battle of truth versus trust. "Knight & Day" is slotted to hit theaters on July 2, 2010.

Co-stars include Peter Sarsgaard (“An Education”) as a federal agent relentlessly pursuing the couple; Viola Davis (“Doubt”) as a CIA director trying to decipher the true purpose of their high-wire activities; Paul Dano (“There Will Be Blood”) as an eccentric genius behind a revolutionary technology; and Olivier Martinez (“Unfaithful”) as a ruthless arms manufacturer. Also co-starring are Maggie Grace (“Taken”) and Marc Blucas (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”).

Crews with "Knight & Day" filmed scenes throughout the Boston area including the Worcester Regional Airport, Jacob Wirth Restaurant located at 31 Stuart St. in Boston's Theatre District, South Boston's waterfront district, Boston Public Library, Boston Fire Museum as well as the classic Parisian brasserie Gaslight located at 560 Harrison Avenue.
