The Wrath of Becky Filming Locations
‘The Wrath of Becky’ was filmed in New Jersey and New York, especially in Scotch Plains. Principal photography for the sequel seemingly commenced in May 2022 and wrapped up in early June of the same year. Now, let’s not waste time and follow Becky to learn about the specific locations that appear in the action thriller movie!
Several important scenes for ‘The Wrath of Becky’ were lensed in various parts of New Jersey. For instance, in June 2022, numerous locals and passersby spotted the cast and crew members as they taped some key portions of the movie in Scotchwood Diner, 1928 US-22, in the township of Scotch Plains. Besides, the filming unit seemingly set up camp at different locations to record important sequences against suitable backdrops.
For shooting purposes, the production team of ‘The Wrath of Becky’ also traveled to the State of New York. Several portions, interiors and exteriors, were reportedly shot in several sites across the state for the thriller movie. While New York City has an urban cityscape, most of the rest of the state comprises a diverse terrain dominated by meadows, farms, forests, lakes, mountains, and rivers, making it a suitable production location for a movie like ‘The Wrath of Becky.’
In a late May 2023 interview with Moviefone, Seann William Scott, who portrays Darryl, was asked about his experience having to perform the scene where he was physically cruel to a dog. The actor replied, “Yeah, I love animals. One of my biggest things is that this dog was so sweet too. I was like, excuse me, how are we going to do the thing with the dog? Or I’m supposed to squeeze his head because, obviously, that’s not happening. I was holding this dog all day.”
“He was a monster-sized dog, but he was drooling and so sweet and looking up at me. I’m like, “Don’t you worry, buddy. It’s just a movie. It’s fake.” So I’m supposed to put my hand on top of his head and kind of squeeze. But the breed of doggie he is had all these big fatty wrinkles, so you could just push lightly, and for him, it was a little bit of a tickle. But when you see it on screen, it looks really mean. But no, I wasn’t going to hurt him,” Scott expanded.
