David O. Russell‘s Abscam movie, which will open limited on 12.13 or nine months hence, began shooting yesterday in Boston. A 2010 version of Eric Singer’s script runs 134 pages so figure a two-hour running time, give or take. A three-month shooting schedule means principal wraps in late June. Three months of editing and it’ll begin test-screening in late September or thereabouts. Eight weeks for tune-ups and final scoring and whatnot, and then screenings for major critics begin around Thanksgiving.
