A film production crew was packing up cameras and gear on the corner of Dekalb Avenue and 208th Street today and were off to another undisclosed location in the Bronx, according to Gabrielle, the production supervisor on set.

The movie being filmed, according to publicist Carol McConnaughey, is a yet-untitled drama from Academy Award-nominated writer/director Paul Weitz, ("About a Boy") starring two-time Academy Award winner Robert DeNiro and Paul Dano ("There Will Be Blood").

The dramatic feature is based on Nick Flynn’s 2004 memoir entitled "Another Bulls—t Night in Suck City," and tells the story of a young writer who takes a job at a homeless shelter, where one night he discovers his long-absent father seeking a bed.

"Juno" star Olivia Thirlby co-stars as Dano's love interest, while Golden Globe-nominated Julianne Moore will play his mother, who is seen in flashbacks.

McConnaughey said that the crew is filming throughout the New York City area, but today is the only day in the Bronx. No word on whether the stars were there this afternoon.
