FILMington, NC started ROLLING back in 1983, when thee Frank Capra Jr. was producing a film adaptation of the Steven King novel “Firestarter” and needed a grand antebellum mansion. His keen scouting eye noticed one of our plantations on a magazine cover on the cover so he sought it out in person and the rest is movie-magic history. Mr. Capra fell so in love with the Wilmington area that he persuaded Dino De Laurentis, (who had financed that film), to actually build a studio here and world-class crew talent quickly followed! That D.E.G. Studios, later became CAROLCO Studios, then, today’s famed EUE Screen Gems Studios!!
Today, The Wilmington Regional Film Commission, Inc. is the central resource for productions seeking information on filming in this region.
