While filming the robbery scene in 2011 The Town, director Ben Affleck recruited the services of a set of rare identical quadruplets, all of whom were actual Catholic nuns. The actors that you see robbing the armoured car are not Ben Affleck, Jeremy Renner and co, but the sisters. Affleck made the unusual choice so that he could better observe how the action was developing on screen, and only intended to have the sisters stand in and plan out the shots. “What can I say?” quipped Affleck in his traditional Boston accent. “Those nuns were balls-out ass-kickas.” Sister Mary-Louise Alcott reported that the sisters were glad to take part, saying that it brought them a better understanding of crime and sin, something they will use in the future of their parish.
