Casting continues for Word on Bathroom Walls. So far we’ve learned that Charlie Plummer is taking on the lead role of Adam, a high schooler living with paranoid schizophrenia and battling wild hallucinations. Then we learned Taylor Russell (who is super adorable in the Netflix show Lost in Space ) is playing Maya, the love interest of Adam.

Now, the latest in casting news, AnnaSophia Robb is co-starring in the flick, playing Rebecca, one of the main characters in Adam’s hallucinations who “acts as a conduit for the feelings that he cannot express.”

It’s shaping up to be a great cast. Production kicks off in about 3 weeks!

Two possible features for North Carolina

Looks like North Carolina has two possible feature films passing through North Carolina.

First up is Maximum Speed, a family drama about a racing family. They are said to be shooting at Texas Motor Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway mid-summer or early fall.

Synopsis: It centers on Cody Wade, a young bull rider and the son of a racing legend who returns to stock-car racing to save the family legacy. Wade Motorsports only has one good driver, a rookie who’s fast and bold and the only woman on the circuit. Racing again is the only option, since Cody’s older brother is driving for his father’s arch enemy that wants to eliminate Wade Motorsports.

The movie is in active development and is being produced and directed by Aaron Norris.

Next up is the period piece Wilderness, which follows a confederate soldier during the battle of the Wilderness in the American Civil War.

Synopsis: At the Battle of the Wilderness, a warhardened, North Carolina Confederate soldier makes a fateful decision in the heat of battle that sends him on a journey home through a parallel wilderness.

Production is slated to begin in August and PW lists them shooting in 3 states. Georgia, Virginia and North Carolina. Richard De Wit is directing.

I have no idea how big our piece of the pie would be for either flick.  That’s all I have for now. If any more details come in, I’ll let ya know!
