NORTH CAROLINA (SCREENDAILY.COM) — After its starring role in The Hunger Games, North Carolina is set to host a number of other high-profile shoots, led by Iron Man 3 and Matthew Weiner’s feature directorial debut.
Both films will start shooting this month at various locations across the state.
Aaron Syrett, head of the NC Film Office since 2007, notes that Iron Man 3 will be the largest project the state has ever hosted. “We have the largest studio campus outside of Los Angeles here [in Wilmington],” he notes. Iron Man 3 will do “a lot of studio work but also shooting in various parts of North Carolina.
Mad Men creator Weiner’s You Are Here will shoot in and around Winston-Salem, and will star Owen Wilson, NC native Zach Galifianakis, Amy Poehler and Laura Ramsey. “[Weiner] is such a well respected writer for Mad Men, so this film is a really good ‘get’ for NC. I think it’s a great cast, he’s such a creative person,” says Syrett.
