STONY POINT -

Hollywood is back in the Hudson Valley this morning.

A new Showtime series is filming in Stony Point and a viewer sent News 12 pictures of actor Ben Stiller hanging out with fans on Call Hollow Road.

Stiller is directing the eight-episode mini-series called "Escape from Dannemora" which is based on the real-life prison escape by convicted killers Richard Matt and David Sweat from the Clinton Correctional Facility in 2015.

Benicio del Toro is starring as Richard Matt.
