New Feature Film to Shoot Scenes in Durham

Durham will soon become the backdrop for another feature film. The Triangle Regional Film Commission has announced that the feature motion picture "ARTHUR NEWMAN, GOLF PRO" will shoot scenes in Durham in mid-November.

The film star Emily Blunt (“The Adjustment Bureau”, “The Devil Wears Prada,”) will join Academy Award winning actor Colin Firth ("The King's Speech, "Bridget Jones's Diary) for the shoot.

The film, a comedic drama,  marks the highly anticipate feature directoral debut of Dante Ariola, an award winning commercials director for global brands including Coca Cola, Adidas, Nike, ESPN and Volkswagen. The plot synopsis on the website IMDB reads, "Two people trying to escape their past move into an abandoned house together."

After working with the film’s producers for several months and guiding them through two extensive location searches, the Triangle Regional Film Commission along with the North Carolina Film Office helped find several locations that exactly fit their needs.
