‘Breakwater’ starts filming in Wilmington, in need of actors

WILMINGTON — One of many productions filming in Wilmington will have the cameras rolling next week, according to a permit pulled for “Breakwater.” The indie film starring Dermot Mulroney will be filmed across North Carolina, in Wilmington, Aberdeen and the Outer Banks.

Mulroney stars as a prison inmate, who gets a newly released inmate to go on the hunt for his daughter — someone with her own dangerous past. Interior scenes will be filmed on Kent Street on Oct. 6, according to the City of Wilmington permit. It will not impact traffic.

“Breakwater” will be hiring more actors in coming days as well, according to posts on Kimmie Stewart Casting’s Facebook page. It listed the need for background actors, stand-ins, and recurring roles last week, specifically to film prison scenes today in Aberdeen, which will continue through Oct. 1.

Shoots in Wilmington are scheduled Oct. 4-25 and in the Outer Banks Oct. 27-29, according to the casting company. Roles in Wilmington begin on Oct. 4, and specifics will be posted on the casting company’s Facebook page in coming days, it noted.

Interested parties can email breakwaterbgcasting@gmail.com to apply. Emails will need to include two current photographs (headshot and full body shot, does not need to be professional), name, phone number, age, height, weight, wardrobe sizes, list any visible tattoos and if you have a signed artists release, area you live, and car color/year/make/model.

PCR Covid testing will be required 48 hours prior to filming.
