Hollywood comes to the Outer Banks

Well Wilmington anyway. The buzz is starting. The news release below showed up in my inbox yesterday. Casting Call for the new film "Nights in Rodanthe" I expect that a lot of locals will take time to show up. The last time this happened they shot a "Matlock" episode in Manteo and any number of locals got speaking parts. It was quite the event. This will be fun even if you don't get picked.
Plan to arrive early and good luck parking. The Va. Pilot provided at lot more details that I will. Good Luck and remember "We knew you when"
