One Boston Irish filmmaker to watch out for is Mike O'Dea, who was shooting a Boston Irish crime film on a shoestring, put some of the footage on YouTube and got the attention of Hollywood producer Michael Z. Gordon. Initially entitled "Townies," the film will now be called "Code of Silence." Why? Because Ben Affleck is shooting another Boston mob movie, entitled "The Town." "Code of Silence" is due to start shooting on St. Patrick's Day.
