Film crew to use New Bedford’s ‘Ernie’s’ ‘On a Roll’ as movie setting

Filmmakers who have ties to SouthCoast plan to use the On a Roll cafe at 149 Union St. beginning Saturday as the setting for a short film.

The film involves a conversation with a suicide bomber. No word on whether the main character gets the guy to change his mind by offering him a panini.

In other local movie news, Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorcese were hanging around Taunton in March filming “Ashecliffe” — a film based on Dennis Lehane’s “Shutter Island.” It was a strange book, and I’m looking forward to Scorcese’s interpretation.
