Actor Ben Stiller, was recently seen in the Upstate, New York town of Dannemora. Could he be making a movie about the infamous escape from the Clinton Correctional Facility?

We don't have any guarantees of a movie being filmed there, but last year, an entertainment studio told TMZ that they were thinking about producing a made for TV movie about David Sweat and Richard Matt's prison break.

According to Syracuse.Com:

When Ben Stiller was in the area last week, he told residents he was doing research for a movie, WPTZ reports. Dannemora locals told the TV station that they saw the movie star eyeing the manhole where the inmates made their escape.

Stiller was seen in Malone at King's Wok Buffett where he took time to take pictures with adoring fans.

Ironically, this is the same restaurant that accomplice Joyce Mitchell ate at before the great escape in 2015.
