CHARLOTTE, NC: One more film before the end of the year?

TheLongestRide071014_0152Rumor has it, Producer Marty Bowen is bringing Temple Hill Entertainment back to North Carolina yet again this year.  And if the rumors are true, it looks like he will be heading to Charlotte, NC with his partner in crime Wyck Godfrey. Both, of course, were just here in Wilmington this summer producing the Nicholas Sparks adaptation, The Longest Ride.

????????????This fall,  Paper Towns just might be heading to Charlotte.  This is a story of friendship, come and gone and has a very Stand by Me feel to it (without the dead body).  Taking on the lead role, is Nat Wolff who will be returning to North Carolina for the 3rd time in his career, the second this year alone.  Nat was just here a few months ago in NC for the Mickey Rourke flick, Ashby.   Nat and Marty have already worked together on The Fault in our Stars. Directing is the award winning Jake Schreier.

If these rumors are true, this will a huge relief to the Charlotte area filmmakers and will get them through the holidays with their families.  This of course is especially needed after Cinemax (or HBO) decided to move Banshee to Louisiana for the next two seasons due to the film incentives expiring at the end of the year. (See related article)

While working on The Longest Ride here in Wilmington, Marty did mention Paper Towns, but he did not reveal the location.   Marty was already seasoned to the area as he was also the producer for Sparks’ Safe Haven and Dear John.  He absolutely loves North Carolina and has a strong bond with our state.  In fact, his son was born here in Wilmywood! Besides already having a connection to our state, he also has a strong tie to our North Carolina Film Crew.  I caught up with him a few months back and asked if he could explain exactly why our NC Film crew is world class and what it actually means.  LISTEN NOW

Paper Towns is expected to begin production in November with offices projected to open at the end of September. More details to come and let all the rumors be true! 🙂

ABOUT PAPER TOWNS: Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life-dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge-he follows. After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues-and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees of the girl he thought he knew. ~GoodReads
