York Street in the City of Lambertville looked a bit like Hollywood Monday and Tuesday.

The crews for the upcoming Apple TV+ movie were working at a home in the 40 block of York Street, just of Main Street on Monday, according to residents.

The filming is part of the ongoing production of “Echo Valley,” which has used the working title “Wildvale.” The movie filmed across Hunterdon County last spring before returning in recent weeks.

Park and traffic restrictions were in place from Monday through Tuesday night to accommodate the filming.

During this period, numerous production trucks and trailers were stationed on and around York Street.

In addition to the York Street location, the film crew has recently been spotted at a farmstead on Seabrook Road in Stockton, another site used for filming last year, according to a local source.

“Echo Valley” features a star-studded cast, including Oscar winner Julianne Moore, Emmy-nominated actress Sydney Sweeney, and Golden Globe nominee Domhnall Gleeson. The film is directed by Brad Ingelsby, known for the acclaimed HBO series “Mare of Easttown.”

In May, it was announced that Kyle MacLachlan, Fiona Shaw, and Edmund Donovan would join the cast.

Hollywood publication Deadline describes the premise of the film: “The pic will star Moore as ‘Kate Garrett,’ who is reeling from a personal tragedy and spends her days boarding and training horses at Echo Valley Farm, twenty-two secluded, picturesque acres in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Late one night, her wayward daughter, ‘Claire’ (played by Sweeney), arrives at her doorstep, frightened, trembling, and covered in someone else’s blood. From that simple premise, Echo Valley becomes a heart-pounding thriller about just how far a mother will go to save her child.”

Representatives from the production were not immediately available for comment, and Apple TV+ spokespeople did not return a request for comment.
