West Hartford may not have the Hollywood sign, but it does have lights,cameras, and action going on inside what was once a Friendly’s restaurant in the town’s center. The movie being filmed is an action thriller called Pawn and has stars like Michael Chiklis, Forest Whitaker, Ray Liotta and Nikki Reed. A major reason the high profile film is being shot in Connecticut is because of the tax credits the state offers movie makers.

Pawn is scheduled to be released in 2013.
