First Look at Ashecliffe with DiCaprio and Scorsese

You know, I feel a little better about my job (by which I mean this dirty, dust-covered computer that I show up at every now and then to bang my fingers on) after seeing these clearly telephoto lens pictures of Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese on the set of their new period movie “Ashecliffe”. Not that I think I could have taken better pictures, mind you, but because even the Boston Herald — the friggin Boston Herald — is now printing very paparazzi-like pictures from the set of a still-shooting movie. Aren’t they supposed to be, like, a real newspaper with real journalists and stuff?

So the question is: Am I moving up or are they moving down? You decide!

Drama is set in 1954, U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels is investigating the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane and is presumed to be hiding on the remote Shutter Island.

First pic has Martin Scorsese directing a scene as Leonardo DiCaprio stands by, while the second one has DiCaprio in action with a rifle. Both images were shot at Nahant’s East Point, which I’m assuming is in Boston somewhere. Or not.
