Hoboken and Jersey City have been home to lots of filming for movies. Most recently, The Kill Room was filming in Hoboken a couple months ago — and HG readers were quick to spot Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, and Joe Manganiello around the Mile Square. Before that, 2019’s The Joker had scenes shot in Jersey City, as did A Beautiful Mind, The Godfather, and Men in Black.
Now, the list of movies shot in the Hudson County area is growing. Mark Wahlberg and Halle Berry are currently starring in a movie called Our Man From Jersey and, fittingly, they are filming in NJ. Among the filming locations are Jersey City, Bayonne, Kearny, and Paterson — and it seems filming has already begun in JC. Just yesterday, JC Councilman Yousef Saleh posted on Instagram that Mark Wahlberg took time out of his busy scheduled to hang out with some neighbors and members of the Ward D Community while filming in Jersey City. Read on for what we know about Our Man From Jersey and potential sightings of Mark Wahlberg and Halle Berry.

Mark Wahlberg in Jersey City
Producer + actor Mark Wahlberg has worked on a host of various projects. He’s known for Three Kings, Boogie Nights, The Departed, The Fighter, and Ted, among many others. On top of being an A-list celebrity, he also seems to be generous — evidenced by his Jersey City visit just last night.
JC Heights & Downtown Councilman Yousef J. Saleh posted on Instagram on July 13th about how Mark took time out of filming to come hang out with some locals.
