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!
