‘Iron Man 3’ special effects slated for port; no word on Downey’s return

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Shooting for “Iron Man 3” will resume this weekend with some special effects, but there’s no word on if the movie’s star will be part of the filming.

A film permit for the movie, code-named “Caged,” will return to the State Port of Wilmington Friday through Tuesday. The cast and crew had been shooting at the port earlier this month until star Robert Downey, Jr., was injured. At the time, Marvel Studios said shooting would take a break while he recovered. Marvel has not returned a call to find out if Downey will rejoin the shooting this weekend.

Regardless of whether Downey will be there, the shoot will have some star power thanks to special effects. The City of Wilmington released a statement today saying there will be scenes that will include gunfire, smoke and a helicopter. The city says residents and businesses in the area have been notified about what to expect, but the production wanted to make sure the city was aware in case calls come into the 911 system.

The trial was continued after the judge granted a request by B.J. Wright’s attorney Scott Dorman to withdraw from the case. Dorman would not comment on why quit the case. Because the jury had not yet been sworn in, it is not considered a mistrial.

Also, the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office says the judge has asked for an investigation into possible jury tampering in the case.
