Nicholas Sparks’ ‘The Choice’ begins filming in Wilmington, NC next week; Extras needed


Another Nicholas Sparks movie begins filming in Wilmington, NC next week.

The Choice, based on Sparks’ 2007 book of the same name, “tells the story of a man and a woman who meet first as neighbors in a small coastal town in North Carolina and end up pursuing a relationship that neither could have foreseen.”

Teresa Palmer and Benjamin Walker are set to star.

On Monday, the production is scheduled to film at The Dockside Restaurant, 1308 Airlie Rd, and they need extras for the shoot.

They are specifically looking for:

Boat Party People – 20s-30s and must be comfortable in a bathing suit
Dockside Customers – mostly adults, a few children will be permitted to work

To apply, visit using the authorization code “choice.” After uploading a photo, email Marty Siu Casting at with the heading of the role in which you are applying.

Filming is expected to continue at this location through Oct. 15.
