A North Carolina shot comedy is in theaters tomorrow! Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. The storyline involves a bad grandpa who takes a cross-country trip with his young grandson. You don’t really see it here, but the trailer you see in theaters has a ton of North Carolina beauty including the Charlotte, Gastonia and Belmont areas. One restaurant in particular was The Penguin restaurant in Charlotte. The flick stars Johnny Knoxville, Jackson Nicoll and Georgina Cates.
Well Wishes, an independent feature, written and directed by UNCSA grad, Drew Boyd, is back in Wilmington again today. Yesterday they were at Airlie Gardens. They are moving just down the road to the beach. Wrightsville Beach access 1 beginning this morning. The movie stars our local boys Cullen Moss, Shane Callahan , with Don Baker and Anna Stromberg in major supporting roles. Tons of other Wilmington talent involved too!
And speaking of Cullen Moss, our Wilmington-based actor has been killing it lately! We just saw him do a hilarious scene in Eastbound and Down with Danny McBride in the season premiere, and now you can see him on the big screen during Cucalorus in The Heroes of Arvine Place (written and directed by Wilmington legend, Damian Lahey). It was in the Williamsburg International Film Festival in New York where it won Best Film, Best Director, and Best Actor! So give some love to Cullen for killing it and living the dream!!
The Squeeze is shooting at the Wilmington Municipal Golf course today.
