I don't know if they're still there but that Tegoshi is filming in a movie is true. By the way it's a school in Tokyo. They plan to be filming until 21:00 today.

Details of the movie

Official Hollywood site

Plot synopsis from xq
The female lead, a 16 year old girl named Naomi, lost four years of her memory. Matsuyama's role is that of a guy named James who sent Naomi to the hospital after she her memory loss. Naomi likes James. Will, Naomi's good friend before she lost her memory frequently attempts to aid Naomi in recovering her memory. Tegoshi should be playing the role of Will.

More about the characters thanks to lovetego forums and nanchant 
“Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac,” as Zevin explains on the first page, is, above all, “a love story. And like most love stories, this one involves chance, gravity, a dash of head trauma.” Naomi must choose among three guys who represent different visions of love: Ace, a handsome tennis jock who offers her a seat at the popular table; James, a brooding misfit who sports suicide scars and offers an alternative to the life she finds so alienating; and devoted Will, her best friend and fellow yearbook nerd, the one best positioned to offer her the real Naomi."

From tokyograph 25/11
Maki Horikita and Kenichi Matsuyama have been cast as co-stars in a new movie directed by American filmmaker Hans Canosa ("Conversations with Other Women"). Although the movie is being made primarily for the Japanese market, there are plans to have the film screened in the U.S., and some of the dialogue will be in English.

The movie's working Japanese title is "Nakushita Kioku." It is based on the novel "Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac" by American author Gabrielle Zevin, which tells the story of a girl named Naomi who loses the last four years of her memory after falling down a staircase. While Naomi tries to re-establish her identity, she also has to deal with romance in the form of Yuji (Matsuyama), an older schoolmate.

Filming begins this Wednesday. The movie's Japanese premiere is planned for fall 2009, and a U.S. release will hopefully follow in 2010.
