Probably "Homeland" on Showtime
Does anyone know what movie/show is currently being filmed near uptown? The last couple nights I've seen a full-scale film crew in Chantilly off Pecan and the night after off Queens Rd West. Both at night and, from the look of it, well funded.

What is the current status of Charlotte in the film industry? Are we gaining a footing, or losing it? I mean, we all know about "Shallow Hal", "Juwanna Mann" and "Eddie", all American classics. Anything else coming this way that we know of?
Wow that's a lot of questions.

We lost Iron Man 3 to Atlanta, I guess their deal looked better to the movie studio, but currently Charlotte filming is up the past few years. Although not as exciting, there is a lot of Nascar related national commercials filmed in Charlotte.

There is actually a strong Film work force in Charlotte. The current tax incentive only helps. Mostly with the higher budget movies of coarse. There are plans for some more projects. You would be surprised, but there are usually a lot of smaller movies filmed here, with ever now and again a larger movie comes in. Hunger Games will be a BIG movie, they are planning on doing at least 2 more to my knowledge. Whether they come back to NC to film is yet to be determined.

Correction on the above comment, looks like we lost Iron Man 3 to Wilmington, forgot what it was we lost to Atlanta.

I just think it would be a nice link between the center city where the money is and the Arts District.

According to my fiancé, the next season of "the bachelorette" will be filmed in Charlotte.
In Charlotte ETJ on Lake Wylie, that is. The show uses a home in the Sanctuary.

Anyways, I was really excited until I watched it, but it really put Charlotte in a bad light. Not that they bashed the city or anything, they just went to a lot of awful spots (in my opinion) that made Charlotte look boring and culture-less.
Honestly the end of the episode was Charlotte's saving grace. They ended at P-stone and the two lady bartenders there drank Lamprey and his buddy under the table. They had a good time and make that area look good.
Rant of the day.

Charlotte is getting A LOT of attention so far this year. I honestly think that us getting the DNC has definitely improved Charlotte's status in the national spotlight. I found it odd that the Bachlorette was going to film here. then I found it odd that Madonna is touring here when she has NEVER been here before, now the Real Housewives will be filming here. What next? LOL!
Does this means Charlotte has arrived? And if so, who the hell gave directions?!
