Another film shoot for Fenway Park


It’s fairly predictable: If a film is set in Boston, Fenway Park will make at least a cameo. In the recent past, the ballpark has shown up in such films as “Fever Pitch,” “The Town,” “Moneyball,” and even the Academy Award-winning “Spotlight.”

Thursday, with the Red Sox playing on the road, word is the cast and crew of “The Catcher Was a Spy” will be shooting at Fenway. The war drama, directed by Ben Lewin and written by Robert Rodat, is based on the book of the same name and stars Paul Rudd as Moe Berg, a former Major Leaguer who later served as a spy for the Office of Strategic Services during World War II. Rudd plays Berg, who was a part-time player for the Red Sox in the late 1930s. The impressive cast also includes Guy Pearce, Jeff Daniels, Paul Giamatti, Sienna Miller, Giancarlo Giannini, Hiroyuki Sanada, and Tom Wilkinson.
