Just three days after former President Donald Trump drew national attention to Wellington, the village is getting a spotlight again, this time for the upcoming filming of a movie starring Adam Driver.
Photos surfaced on social media last week of Driver and co-star Greta Gerwig in front of Addie’s Antiques on Herrick Street. The building now features a fresh, colorful mural with a fictitious company name, “Wizard Records.”
Down the street, a vacant storefront is being converted into an ’80s-era movie theater. Next door at Windsor Realty, local union workers from IATSE 209 were busy painting the outside columns for what will be a delicatessen.
“The more movies that come here, the more local workers will grow,” Victoria Petrovic, a member of the union and part of the Netflix set design crew which was hired locally, said.
