(NECN: Katelyn Tivnan) – Worcester, Mass. is all abuzz this week with Hollywood setting up shop in the city. Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Christian Bail and Jeremy Renner have all been seen in Worcester filming their new movie.

It seems like most people just cannot get enough of the Hollywood buzz.

Limited parking spots and slow-moving traffic are both results of crews filming around Worcester. But a complicated commute isn’t putting a damper on most people’s excitement.

Local extra Steve Charette says he’s happy about the opportunity for more work.

The David O’Russell film is untitled as of now.

New sets are popping up across Worcester. Most people seem excited to check out the new scenery, but most are hoping they’ll get a glimpse of more than just a few new sets.

Nearby on Millbury Street, celebrities like Jeremy Renner filmed scenes while onlookers watched from a distance.

Charette has been just feet away from Christian Bale and Amy Adams but says for him it’s still work.

All this action is drawing big crowds across the city. The film’s publicist says they try to keep the crowds at bay because it can make the crew’s job more difficult and having to re-shoot can be costly.
