Independence Day and Jurassic Park star Jeff Goldblum was reportedly in the area this week to film scenes for an upcoming movie.

Syracuse.com is reporting that Goldblum was in town on Tuesday to film scenes for an independent project he's involved with.

The film is called 'The Mountain' and Screencrush.com shared a quote Goldblum gave about the movie at a French Film Festival:

“It reminds me in tone of P.T. Anderson’s There Will Be Blood or The Master, metaphorical critiques of the American psyche, in the vein of Death of a Salesman.… It’s not for everybody, but I really like it, I keep working on it, and I like him.”

Goldblum was actually filming a few scenes outside of the Newhouse School of Communications on the Syracuse University campus.

Of course those who saw and had the chance to interact with the actor took to social media.


Other actors and filmmakers who have come through the area so far this year include Ben Stiller, John Krasinski, Dave Coulier, and the cast of Martin Scorsese's new project 'The Irishman.'
