The new con artist film “Sharper” has taken over the Village.

If you’re looking to spot some A-list actors at work, it appears the Village is your go-to spot. Just Jared reports Julianne Moore and Sebastian Stan have been seen in Washington Square Park as they’ve begun filming their upcoming movie “Sharper.” Previously, the project was filming on Thompson Street, between Houston and Prince, according to signs posted in the area under the filming name “Woohoo.” The Apple Original Films and A24 project will center on a con artist (played by Moore) operating in Manhattan’s billionaire echelon. Stan will reportedly play Max, a conman known for carrying out complicated schemes and stealing large sums of money. Justice Smith, John Lithgow, Quincy Dunn-Baker, Briana Middleton, Phillip Johnson Richardson, and more will also appear. Benjamin Caron (“The Crown,” “Sherlock”) is directing from a script by Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka. A release date has yet to be announced.
