Stars McCarthy, Sarandon take 'Tammy' to streets of Wilmington

READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- It was a star-studded shoot on the streets of Hollywood East today.

Oscar-nominee Melissa McCarthy and Oscar-winner Susan Sarandon were filming a car scene for their upcoming movie "Tammy" on N. 4th St.

McCarthy's character in the film is having a bad day after getting fired from her job and totaling her car. She turns to her grandmother Pearl, played by Sarandon, for help, and the two end up taking a road trip, which is the scene crews were filming today.

"They set out on a road trip, and Melissa doesn't know where they are going, so it's two minutes out of the gate, and she made the wrong turn," Executive Producer Chris Henchy said. "She whips a U-turn right in front of us. I mean that's the first five minutes of the road trip. They're already screwed up."

The crew said "Tammy" will be filming in Boiling Spring Lakes as well as Burgaw in addition to its Wilmington shoots.

2 of a kind

I think it's great they're here. Brings alot not just here but throughout the state. You and that Paul guy that post comments on the other TV blog must be brothers or the same guy. He hates movies being filmed here. He's obsessed about the incentive packages the state has for movie production. I don't get it why he thinks less taxes on anyone is not good. I think they should do away with state tax period myself. It works for Florida, Texas and others.

Is this going to be like

Is this going to be like Iron Man where we hear about the movie filming ad nauseum?

Ooooh, I am sooo hoping so!

I, Chico Especiale, am sooo hoping this will be sooo ad nauseum, that we small people, we shall become nauseum-ated, just like we did with the importante Iron Man! That would be such an honor! It is muy importante that we know that we are less, so much more less, than the importante actors that come to where we live! If we did not grovel before them, then our world would have soooo much less meaning!

I, Chico Especiale, just like WWAY, am hoping to prove that we are worth sooo much less than these importante actors.

Ooooh, please WWAY, you should tell us every small thing about these importante actors, because if that is not happening, we should have no reason to live in our tiny lives!

Freedom!

Hey, guess what? You have a choice on what news stories you want to read! This is dadgum AMURICA, Mister!

Or you might be one of those bitter people that just enjoys complaining. You're free to do that, too.

Have a blessed day!

I'm not a mister. I am not

I'm not a mister. I am not the only one that got sick of Robert Downey Jr. this and Iron Man that.

Oooh that is not sooo very good!

Without the importante Iron Man, our very small lives would not have the meaning as they have with the Iron Man! Do you want to go back to your non importante lives?

Do not blaspheme the Iron Man!
