The upcoming movie The Whole Truth, starring Renee Zellweger and Daniel Craig, will be filming scenes in downtown Salem beginning next month.

The movie is being shot by Oscar-nominated director Courtney Hunt and is expected to utilize the city's old courthouse on Washington Street - where scenes for American Hustle were filmed last year.

Filming is expected to begin at the end of April and last through the end of May.

Melita Picciotto, owner of Salem's Melita Fiore Patisserie, was pleased to report that her small pastry shop will appear in the movie. 

"We are very excited that they are using the store here for a scene in the movie," Picciotto said. 

The North Shore has become a popular place to shoot films. In recent years, Ted, American Hustle and Adam Sandler films have been shot on North Shore communities.
