Boone could be a film locale PDF Print
Thursday, 02 August 2007 20:00

Last night was the big night for Boone-based producer Gary Wheeler.

His latest film, The List premiered in Charlotte. Wheeler hopes to bring the show to Boone.

 

He's local, and wants to positively influence the local population, he says.

 

Eventually, Wheeler may film a Boone-based production, he says.

 

He thinks it would be good for the community and bring businesses into the area. It would be something everyone could support, he says.

 

Wheeler has a few ideas- including a movie based around Tweetsie Railroad.

 

In the meantime, Wheeler has other film projects to occupy his time. There’s one particular project, however, Wheeler would love to partake in- teaching at Appalachian State University.

 

While he's been in touch with the theatre department in the past- he's not sure what their current plans are faculty-wise. Wheeler says, film schedule permitting, he'd teach next semester if he could. 

 

The List, starring Malcolm McDowell, opens to the public on August 10.
