Wax feature of Robert as Sherlock Holmes at Madame Tussauds.
Shelburne Falls is becoming Carlinville, Indiana, for the next few weeks as Hollywood crews begin filming “The Judge” starring Robert Downey Jr.
Workers were turning a Greenfield Co-operative Bank branch on Bridge Street into Carlinville Savings & Loan on Thursday. Fire hydrants got a new coat of paint. And banners identifying the town as Carlinville and celebrating the fictional town’s 170th anniversary were hung from lamp posts.
In “The Judge,” Downey will star as a successful lawyer who returns to his hometown for his mother’s funeral only to discover that his estranged father (Robert Duvall), the town’s judge, is suspected of murder. The comedy-drama also stars Vera Farmiga (“Up in the Air”), as well as Vincent D’Onofrio (“Law & Order: Criminal Intent”) and Billy Bob Thornton (“Sling Blade”).
Aerial photography will commence on Friday. Additional shooting along Bridge Street will take place next week.
When filming wraps in Shelburne Falls and Sunderland, the production will move on to Worcester and Boston.
“The Judge” is a co-production between the star’s Team Downey and director David Dobkin’s Big Kid Pictures. It will be released by Warner Bros.

Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr is to reunite with director Jon Favreau on the independent comedy Chef, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Favreau directed the first two films in the superhero saga and reprises his cameo role as Tony Stark’s bodyguard Happy Hogan in the hugely successful current third film in the series. He will take the lead role in Chef, which centres on a sacked restaurant worker who starts up a food truck to reclaim his artistic promise and simultaneously finds himself reclaiming his estranged family.
The film, which begins shooting next month in LA, also stars Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo and Bobby Cannavale. It is not yet known which role Downey Jr will play.
Downey Jr’s Iron Man 3, directed by series newcomer Shane Black, looks likely to break the $1bn mark at the global box office in the next few days after taking a gargantuan $72m in the US and $89.3m elsewhere at the weekend. It has currently made $948m across the world in just three weeks of release (two in north America) and could yet surpass the $1.5bn figure garnered by Marvel Studios predecessor The Avengers last year.
Favreau made his name in front of the cameras on the Doug Liman indie comedy drama Swingers, which he also wrote, in 1996, and has oscillated between directing and acting ever since. Despite the low-key nature of Chef, he maintains an interest in blockbuster film-making: future projects include the Disney film Magic Kingdom, about a family which travels to Disneyland and sees its famous inhabitants come to life
Jon Favreau’s Chef is set to be a major scaling down in terms of production size, more of an indie affair the Cowboys & Aliens helmer is set to write, direct, and star in. Now Favreau’s Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. is coming aboard as well, taking an undisclosed role. Downey and Favreau will appear Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo and Bobby Cannavale. The plot details “a man who loses his chef job and starts up a food truck to reclaim his artistic promise and reclaiming his estranged family.” Filming begins in July in L.A.
