With Boston on lockdown as authorities continue the massive manhunt for Marathon bombing suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one high-profile Hollywood film is also feeling the effects.

Producers pulled the plug on location shooting today in the city on David O. Russell's American Hustle, which reunites his Silver Linings Playbook principles Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro and also costars Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Louis C.K.

A Sony Pictures rep confirms to E! News that the production has heeded Governor Deval Patrick's request for everyone "to remain indoors."

Tsarnaev is believed to have been on the run since late last night following a shootout that left his 26-year-old brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev dead. Both siblings are suspects in the explosions that left three people dead and injured more than 170 at the Boston Marathon.

It's also emerged that Dzhokhar has something in common with two of Boston's favorite sons.

USA Today reports that the younger Tsarnaev went to Boston's Cambridge Rindge & Latin School where he was on the school's wrestling team; according to the school's website, the school's alumni include Oscar winners Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.  

In the wake of Monday's tragedy, Affleck tweeted his support for his hometown.

"Such a senseless and tragic day. My family and I send our love to our beloved and resilient Boston," he wrote.

Other notable graduates of Cambridge Rindge and Latin include NBA legend Patrick Ewing and a slew of Olympians.
