HN Entertainment exclusively reported a few weeks ago that Russell Crowe would be headlining a new Miramax film titled The Georgetown Project.
The scoop was later supported by TheHollywoodReporter.
The film will be directed by Joshua John Miller and Mark A. Fortin, who wrote the 2015 horror film Final Girls and developed the USA Network series Queen of The South.
It’s now been revealed that filming will be taking place at Wilmington, North Carolina after the film’s producer Kevin Williamson posted this image of himself scouting stages a while ago.
EUE/Screen Gems Studios is a stage facility in Wilmington which was used for the DC Universe series Swamp Thing and James Wan’s The Conjuring.
Crowe is expected to become possessed by a demon in the horror flick.
Wilmington is a location that is currently being used for Blumhouse/Universal’s Halloween Kills from director David Gordon Green, a sequel to the recent Halloween (also shot in Wilmington) from 2018 starring Jamie Lee Curtis.
The film’s production team includes It Follows and Under The Silver Lake production designer Matthew Perry, who we previously mentioned is working on the film.
Russell Crowe has had an extensive career with projects that include Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind, The Nice Guys, L.A. Confidential, Man of Steel, Robin Hood, The Insider, American Gangster, 3:10 to Yuma, Les Miserables, Body of Lies, and Noah.
There should be a bunch of casting announcements in the coming weeks.
Miramax has yet to give The Georgetown Project an official release date.
