WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) – Wrightsville Beach will take center stage for filming of The Perfect Summer next week.
Starting Monday, May 13, crews from the movie will be shooting at Aussie Island Surf Shop and the beach strand at Access #29 (Stone Street).
Filming will last from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. with the exception of Friday, when the shoot must wrap by 5 p.m. to comply with town ordinances.
The movie will film a surf competition scene on the beach.
The surf shop scene will include dialogue between characters.
The film stars Eric Roberts and Wilmington’s Sydney Penny, who is best known for her role on All My Children.
Roberts' daughter, Emma, also an actor, was in Wilmington herself last year filming a movie. Emma's aunt and Eric's sister, Julia Roberts, starred in 1991's Sleeping With the Enemy, which was also filmed in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach.
The project is looking for extras. For more information about how you can be a part of the production, visit: https://www.facebook.com/VanessaNcasting?directed_target_id=0
