Boston filming continues

  • Another filming report from the Boston Globe:

    Leonardo DiCaprio roughed up Matt Damon yesterday, and it was caught on film. Actually, Leo only acted like he punched Matt, over and over and over again, as shooting of ''The Departed" continued. In a tense scene filmed on a South Boston rooftop, DiCaprio also menaced Damon with a gun, but when the action was over, the stars were all smiles on the set. The Martin Scorsese film is slated to finish shooting this week, before returning to New York City for more filming. The production is expected back in Boston for additional shooting in August, but without Damon, who's moving on to film ''The Good Shepherd" with Robert DeNiro.
