A major Hollywood production brought cast and crew to the North Coast on Tuesday for filming at McMenamins Hotel in Gearhart.

The Amazon Studios romantic comedy “Somebody I Used to Know,” directed by Dave Franco and starring Alison Brie, Jay Ellis and Kiersey Clemons, launched in late September.

Brie, known for her work on the TV shows “Mad Men” and “Community,” is married to Franco and co-wrote the script. Franco also directed the horror movie, “The Rental,” which starred Brie.

Filming for “Somebody I Used to Know” took place on the outdoor deck behind McMenamins and will continue in the Portland area.

According to Amazon Studios, the movie follows a workaholic, played by Brie, who, on a trip to her hometown spends a night reminiscing with her ex-boyfriend, which makes her start to question everything about the choices she’s made and the person she’s become.

The movie will debut on Prime Video next year.
