'Men in Black 3' films at new Ramapo stadium

Posted: Updated:

A major Hollywood film was shooting at the newly opened Provident Bank Ballpark in Ramapo today.

Scenes were shot at the baseball stadium for the upcoming film "Men In Black 3," a sequel to the blockbuster 2002 hit.

Columbia Pictures says the movie's stars, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, were not at the ballpark today. They say the production team was only re-enacting the 1969 Mets World Series championship game.

Rockland County's tourism director CJ Miller says Rockland's close proximity to New York City makes it a top pick with producers. She says it is an advantage that nets the county big bucks from production costs to local spending by crews and casts.
