“Rocklanders know that Suffern is a great place to go to the movies, with our historic Lafayette Theater,” Mayor Dagan Lacorte said, “And I’m thrilled Hollywood realizes Suffern is a great place to make movies too. We’re rolling out the red carpet.”

Bateman, who started his career on Little House on the Prairie, achieved great notoriety for the critically acclaimed comedy series Arrested Development. He first gained acclaim as an adult when he appeared on The Hogan Family for 110 episodes and most recently was the of the comedies “Horrible Bosses” and “Identity Thief.” He became the Directors Guild of America’s youngest-ever director when he directed three episodes of the series at age 18.

“The spotlight is shining on a revitalized Suffern,” Lacorte said, “I hope the crew visits our acclaimed Restaurant Row and takes a look at the exciting new construction in our downtown business district.”

Lacorte said village officials would monitor the filming to avoid any disruption to residents.
