Filming continued Thursday in Manhattan on “Bad Education,” a movie starring Hugh Jackman as disgraced former Roslyn Schools Superintendent Frank Tassone.

According to the website, which tracks movie shoots, "Bad Education" was filming at Park Avenue and 63rd Street.

The movie had been filming recently in Roslyn.

Tassone was sentenced to 4 to 12 years in prison in 2006 for his role in an $11 million embezzlement scheme involving the district, which was ranked as one of the nation’s top schools at the time. He was released from prison in 2010, eight months and four days earlier than his minimum sentence.

There is no release date yet for the movie, which also stars Alex Wolff and Allison Janney. Mike Makowsky (2015's “Open 24 Hours,” this year's “I Think We’re Alone Now”), who grew up in Roslyn during the scandal, wrote the movie, which has already drawn criticism from the Roslyn school district.
