Mel Gibson Movie Shoot Boosts Local Economy


Mel Gibson and company have set up shop in Western Massachusetts. Filming "Edge of Darkness" has been underway in Amherst.

The movie crew has given local business a boost. Atkins Farms in Amherst is case in point.

"I know they have ordered a lot from the deli; sandwiches and wraps," said Rihana Hooten of Atkins Farms.

Hooten could not be sure how much money the crew has spent, but she said truckloads of food from the deli and bakery sections have been picked up over the last several days.

"It has been busy ... but it has been exciting," she said.

Production moves to Northampton next week.
