Unused funds returned to NC Film Grant program

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Four million dollars is back in the pot for the NC Film Grant.

Wilmington Regional Film Commissioner , Johnny Griffin, wrote a letter saying the money is part of unused funds that were returned.

Industry insiders say the money was meant for the Dirty Dancing remake, but filming never got off the ground. That production only had a certain amount of time to use the money and now the deadline is up.

The remake was supposed to film in the western part of the state.

Applications for the grant money are currently being accepted.
