A scooper wrote in to let us know that the new Catherine Zeta Jones project Mostly Martha is filming in Greenwich Village.
I work in Greenwich Village. The film is currently being shot on ****************** (removed so we dont have thousands of people hitting the set). They are shooting in a vacant restaurant, which has been re-named "22 Bleeker" for purposes of the movie.
The film is an adaptation of the German movie "Mostly Martha" (originally titled "Bella Martha", 2001), directed by Sandra Nettelbeck. The new movie will star Catherine Zeta-Jones as Martha and Scott Hicks will direct from a screenplay by Carol Fuchs. The original movie tells the story of Martha, the head chef at a chic restaurant, who has no time for anything - or anyone - else. But, Martha's solitary life is shaken when a fateful accident brings her sister's eight-year-old daughter, Lina, to her doorstep.
As Martha struggles to care for her headstrong niece, the restaurant hires a charming and carefree Italian chef named Mario. Suspicious of Mario's intentions, Martha slowly discovers that he has a special recipe for living - one that will touch her home and her heart.
