The buzz in the Massachusetts movie biz is that yesterday’s ouster of Screen Actors Guild prez Doug Allen is good news for the locals.

“We have a handful of planes circling the runway waiting for SAG to ink a deal with the studios before coming in for a landing,” Massachusetts Film Office chief Nick Paleologos told the Track. “I’m expecting somewhere between 8 and 12 major projects this year – depending on how fast SAG re-ups with the studios.”
