Be a Star in Wilmywood!

Wilmywood Offers Opportunities to be in the Movies

Living in Wilmington, NC, we’ve grown accustomed to seeing film crews around town filming various TV shows and movies. But why just observe from the sidelines? Wilmywood (Hollywood of the East) affords those who want to experience what it’s like to be involved in the filming of a movie the opportunity to be cast as an extra. So why not step out and into the movies!

Two casting calls have been scheduled by Marvel Studios (which also did the casting for The Hunger Games) for the movie Iron Man 3 (code name: Caged Heat). One will be in Raleigh, NC, and one at Independence Mall in Wilmington on Saturday, April 21 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.  If interested, just show up with a current snapshot of yourself.

Another opportunity for local extras may include Safe Haven, a movie based on a Nicholas Sparks novel by the same name, which is considering Southport as its filming location.
