The filmmakers behind “Patriots Day,” a movie depicting the Boston Marathon bombings, will shoot scenes inside the home of late MIT Police Officer Sean Collier.

Crews will film inside Collier’s apartment on Curtis Street in Somerville’s Teele Square on April 15, according to a permit filed with the city.

Collier died April 18 when Marathon bombers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev shot him inside his police cruiser during the tense manhunt for the brothers following the explosions.


Collier’s former landlord and current owner of the Curtis Street building told the Somerville Journal last week that, although he didn’t know him well, the 27-year-old was a “good guy” who “paid the rent on time.”

He had lived in Somerville since 2009, the Journal reported.

The crew for the movie, which stars Mark Wahlberg, also plans to shoot scenes at MIT. Those scenes will not include Collier’s shooting, filmmakers have said.

Filming for “Patriots Day” began last week in the Boston area, kicking off with shoots in Quincy and Dorchester.
