A movie about a computer nerd who learns to surf to impress the hot girl next-door is gearing up for filming, and cast members, including the famed Eric Roberts, arrived in the Port City over the weekend.
„A Perfect Summer“ is expected to shoot scenes in Wilmington, Carolina Beach and Kure Beach for about a month, according to extras casting agent Vanessa Neimeyer’s Facebook page. Filmmakers will hire experienced surfers as background actors, the site says.
The movie, produced by Wilmington’s Swirl Films and Level Path Productions, features actors Katie Garfield („Where the Devil Hides“) a Raleigh native, Adam Horner, an Aussie transplant, and Jason Castro, a finalist in the seventh season of „American Idol.“
Wilmington resident Sydney Penny, who recently appeared in the locally filmed feature „Heart of the Country,“ also has been cast in the project, according to her website. Penny, known for her role as Julia Santos on the ABC soap opera „All My Children,“ has appeared in a slew of other films, including 1985’s „Pale Rider.“
