The flick, co-starring Christina Hendricks from 'Mad Men" fame and also featuring Kelsey Grammer, Pierce Brosnan, Greg Kinnear and Olivia Munn, is based on Allison Pearson's book following a fictional high-powered finance exec and working mom Kate Reddy as she navigates through the complexities of life.
Think Bridget Jones with a husband and two kids.
Parker, who stars as the female narrator Kate, was spotted with director Douglas McGrath in the Boston Common late on Wednesday. Hendricks, who could easily be SJP's red-headed Miranda replacement in the film, was filming outside of the State House.
Filming is scheduled to continue at the Faneuil Hall Marketplace on Thursday March 10, but may be delayed because of an expected rainstorm.
Last July, crews with the made-in-Boston flick "What's Your Number?" with Anna Faris and Chris Evans shot a wedding reception scene at the 1.7-acre park at Post Office Square in Boston's Financial District. For the Faris movie, set designers worked with the already stunning green space that sits atop an underground parking garage and has been named one of the best squares and plazas in the world by PPS (project for public spaces). The trees in the square were covered with white, paper lanterns and the scene included a live band and Faris wearing a stunning pink bridesmaid gown.
Parker's "I Don't Know How She Does It" film is slotted to hit theaters in 2012.
