IPSWICH — It's not every day that George Clooney walks through your door. But on Monday, he had a particular reason for stepping in to Marcorelle's Fine Wine and Beer on Central Street.
Drew Marc-Aurele, the owner of the family business, had been in touch with a location scout for an upcoming film Clooney is directing. So Clooney and some of the production and film crew stopped in Monday for a visit.
"It kind of brings a little excitement to town," said Leah Smith, the store manager and Marc-Aurele's daughter, on Tuesday. "We believe we got the thumbs-up yesterday that the location may be used in the film."

It's unclear at this point if that may be just the exterior or actually inside the store, she said. "We haven't gotten any other details yet."
Smith said she's not sure if other locations around town are being considered as well, but her understanding is they are scouting other North Shore sites for the film, which is based on a book, "The Tender Bar: A Memoir."

The memoir, published in 2005, is a coming-of-age story by J.R. Moehringer about his experiences growing up in Long Island, seeking out father figures among the patrons at his uncle's bar.
Variety reported in July that Clooney was in negotiations with Amazon Studios to direct and produce the film adaptation. Last month, Ben Affleck was reported to be in negotiations to star in the film. The script was written by William Monahan.
The Ipswich town manager's office, on Tuesday, had heard that Clooney and company may have been in town to scout some locations, but there was no official contact or film permit application yet.

Coast of Massachusetts.  He must have a thing for our sea coast..  About 15 miles from Gloucester, where he filmed The Perfect Storm

I suspect it's supposed to be Manhasset, Long Island before it became fashionable, for The

Tender Bar film which is up next, I think. Interesting that the Ipswich bar people contacted his

lot to ask them to come a take a look so maybe it was his crew doing the scouting..........maybe this is Affleck country too..........

Ps he is in the UK now according to the Zoom stuff he did the other day

I'm guessing Ipswich is a lot cheaper than the Island for filming now, so it makes sense. They get the same look for less.

This was in the news yesterday, so he must have been in Ipswich this week. So, where are Amal and the twins? I thought they were all in Sonning. Could they still be in LA? Or back in LA?  scratch

Possibly back in LA? Or maybe New York, which I guess would be closer?

Perhaps the UK trip was just for Christmas? I'm not sure of the exact timelines.

How is it that they can travel so freely when so many of us are locked down? I guess celebrity does have its perks.

I believe it was ok to travel at that point. The UK lockdown didn't start till January. Not sure how it is in the US.

Well, he mentioned in some of the interviews, that he was back here for the premiere which

they were planning to do as a drive-in. That would have made sense because it was made at

Shepperton and I'm pretty sure they could have fixed that up so that all the film technicians

were there.

But when they landed, they were told we had just gone into Tier 3 so he and everybody else

had to stay put! So he did quite a few zoom interviews in front of a giant brick fireplace - and

one in the garden in Sonning, I think, too.

Also mentioned in another interview that the family had been allowed to go to Hawaii - part

of the US.

News just announced here is that there'll be a complete travel ban in and out of the UK from

Monday - because of the new Brazilian strain. Also Pfizer are running short of the vaccine....

To be honest, I've lost track. NY started a vaccine roll-out this week for front-line workers, teachers, care home residents and staff and now people 65 and over - except that people who had appointments for the injection have been turned away because there isn't enough vaccine. Even making an appointment to get the vaccine is daunting.

My 94 year old uncle and his partner have appointments for the vaccine on Sunday. I hope they're not turned away.

Is it possible that George and his family could have been vaccinated while they were in the UK?

Very very unlikely, Lizzy - far too young.

The government here are prioritising the very old and those with pre-existing conditions

The only person I know who has had the vaccine is a friend who is 89 - and partially blind - who

took a London black cab from her home in central London to the north of London to the Lords

Cricket Ground where she joined the queue. A couple of eighty year olds locally are being

vaccinated next week........

Of course if George needs to get back to Sonning he's got until Monday - and a private plane!

The whole vaccine rollout in the US has been less than successful.  Really a mess.  Last I read just over 10 million doses had been administered tho over 29 million doses have been distributed in the US.  There is no Federal oversight and the states just aren’t doing a good job (lack of funds and coordination) of getting vaccines into people’s arms.

I was hoping George was flying private on these trips lately. He has talked about how careful he has been with the family and why they stayed put in LA for so long.  Now with all this travel he’s got to be super careful.  And it’s only getting worse with the variant strain of the virus going through the UK and the states too.  He’s been concerned especially for Alexander.  I was a bit surprised that he and the family travelled to the UK for the holiday.

Donna,
it's a bit chaotic in Germany as well. Our government decided to vaccinate people in nursing homes first, plus people working there and medical staff. 
Of course now there are discussions about people complaining that they are going to work so they should get their shot first, plus of course people who are on chemotherapy and are very vulnerable, or those - like my parents - over 80 who are living on their own.
You can't vaccine 82 million people at once, so there has to be a certain order.
Plus, of course, the fact that the vaccine is limited at the moment.
Vaccination centers had to be established, furnished and staffed within weeks, and now everybody's waiting for them to start, bec the teams go to nursing homes first.

It's quite difficult having to deal with so many unknown and vagud isdues...

I can relate to this Carol. I live in Frankfurt am main and nothing is clear we don’t even know whether or not they will lift the restrictions by the end of January! It’s been a really tough and long lockdown Sad

A report back from the friend in her 90s who was asked to report to a national cricket ground

for her vaccination. Apparently they were all accommodated on benches to wait  outside - but in

freezing weather. And the comment heard amongst them? 'Well, if the virus doesn't kill us,

pneumonia will!'

Of course once they've had it, they then have to go home for three weeks isolation before it's okay to mix

Ok folks, can we please get this thread back on track about George location scouting in the US? It's easy enough to take this conversation to the chit chat thread and carry on there.
