Philadelphia Mob Movie to Start Filming This Summer

This summer, one of the most anticipated crime movies will begin filming in Philly. It will star Matthias Schoenaerts, Garrett Hedlund, and Scoot McNairy as they deal with family, friendships, and loyalty within the Philadelphia mob world.

Matthias Schoenaerts, the Belgian actor and star of The Danish Girl and Red Sparrow has become a huge success in Europe in the past couple of years with films like Rust and Bone and Disorder. He is now looking to expand to an American audience and should prove to become a huge star so catch him in Philly before he’s too good for us.

Seriously...

Meanwhile, Garrett Hedlund has just come off the tremendous success of the Oscar nominated film, Mudbound. With these big stars, this film should steer the trend away from the Boston mobs focused on in Dennis Lehane's adaptation and finally focus on the only mob that matters, America’s Mob: The Philadelphia Mob.

As production begins, we will keep you posted.

Made In America Remains in Philadelphia

After a lot of speculation, it was revealed that the Made In America Festival is going to remain on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway for years to come. The festival held every Labor Day for the past six years has become a staple of the city and many Philadelphians are now rejoicing.

Earlier this summer, Mayor Kenney’s administration expressed his interest in taking this huge event now synonymous without the city away. Thank God Philadelphia had one half of the biggest power couple in the world to save us: Jay-Z. He wrote an editorial in the Inquirer following the news stating: 

We are disappointed that the mayor of the city of Philadelphia would evict us from the heart of the city, through a media outlet, without a sit-down meeting, notice, dialogue, or proper communication. It signifies zero appreciation for what Made In America has built alongside the phenomenal citizens of this city. In fact, this administration immediately greeted us with a legal letter trying to stop the 2018 event.

Finally after much debate from many high profile Philadelphians like the members of The Roots who firmly stand in favor of keeping the Philadelphia landmark event, Mayor Kenney has announced that Made In America will stay. Jay-Z has 99 problems but Mayor Kenney ain't one.

Thank you Jay-Z!

Thank You!

We at BoatHouse would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who came out to the Racing for Ronald event we hosted  with U-Bahn in support of the Ronald McDonald House. We hope everyone had as much fun playing Mario Kart and donating to a good cause as we did hosting the event. There will be more to come in the future.
