New film: Chlorine

Madison book shop, jeweler's become film sets for a day
Vincent D'Onofrio of 'Law and Order: Criminal Intent' shoots scenes in downtown Madison for independent film
By SALLY CAPONE, Madison Eagle | 1.20.10

Frank Deodene, owner of the Chatham Bookseller at 8 Green Village Road, had his 15 minutes of fame on Friday, Jan. 15, when an independent film crew set up shop inside his front door.

Deodene and Jon Elliott, owner of Emerson Elliott Jewelers at 27 Main St., were contacted several days before Friday’s shooting by the crew of the film, “Chlorine.”

Deodene got to meet one of the film’s stars, Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays Detective Robert Goren on the NBC-TV series, “Law and Order: Criminal Intent.”

The film also stars Kyra Sedgwick of the TNT-TV show, “The Closer.”

‘Really Liked D’Onofrio’


“Several very brief scenes were shot at the front desk, and everybody was very nice and good about putting things back,” Deodene said.

A crew of 25 and a “day player” from Sparta Township shot their scenes from 5 to 9:15 p.m., he said.

“I really liked D’Onofrio,” who Deodene described as 6 foot 3 or 4 inches tall and bulky.

“When he met my wife, Kay, he called her ‘Sweetie,’ maybe because she’s very petite,” he said.

Deodene said he was surprised that so many takes were required even for a few lines.

“I will definitely see the movie, even if it is bad,” he remarked.

The first thing D’Onofrio did when he arrived for the Madison shoot was to step up and shake hands with police officers at the scene.

Earlier in the day, the movie crew set up at Emerson Elliott Jewelers from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., owner Jon Elliott recalled.

The scene shot there involved a salesgirl selling a watch to a young girl.

Elliott said he was surprised by the “tremendous amount of fancy equipment.”

Looks like D'Onofrio has no intention of slowing down! So glad to hear he's doing yet ANOTHER film, even if it is another independent. I love independent films. Sometimes we just never get a chance to see them on the big screen.
