BOSTON — Massachusetts is playing the role of a rural Maine town in a new film starring Jason Sudeikis, Rebecca Hall and Blythe Danner.

The movie “Tumbledown” is being filmed at the New England Studios in Devens in north-central Massachusetts.

The Massachusetts Film Office says the film revolves around a young widow played by Hall struggling to cope with the death of her husband, an acclaimed folk singer. Her life is interrupted when an unwelcome writer from New York played by “Saturday Night Live” alumnus Sudeikis comes to her rural Maine town to research her husband and his music, changing her life in ways she never expected.

The movie also stars Griffin Dunne and Joe Manganiello.

Sean Mewshaw will make his directorial debut of the script written by Desi Van Til.
