Matthew McConaughey Films ‘Gold’ in the Hamptons

Matthew McConaughey is in Southampton Village Thursday shooting a scene for his film Gold, which also co-stars Édgar Ramírez, Bryce Dallas Howard and Rachael Taylor.

Meadow Lane west of Halsey Neck Lane has closed for short periods—five to 15 minutes—intermittently throughout the day as Gold films at the village helipad.

The Gold film crew is using the Coopers Beach parking lot as its main staging and catering area. Shuttles are taking cast and crew between Coopers and the Jimmy Aery Way parking lot across from the helipad.

Directed by Stephen Gaghan, Gold dramatizes the 1993 Bre-X Mineral Corp. mining scandal, according to Variety.
