Movie

Just a few days ago, 21st Century Fox, a satellite motion picture studio based in Wilmington, NC, announced plans to produce a major motion picture on Ocracoke Island.

The psychological thriller (tentatively titled "Ghost Ship") is based on the story of the 1921 wreck of the ill-fated, five-masted schooner, Carroll A. Deering, often called "The Ghost Ship of the Outer Banks." Word on the street is that Johnny Depp and Robert De Niro have both been cast in leading roles.

The Carroll A. Deering















Shooting is scheduled to begin sometime in the fall, and islanders are already excited about the possibility of being cast as extras.

For more information directly from the studio click here.

    The link was quite enlightening. Both Robert DeNero and Johnny Depp donating their salaries to Ocracoke Alive would be awesome.

  2. As long as Johnny Depp doesn't revert to his Captain Jack Sparrow mode, this will work out fine. Seriously, this is a wonderful opportunity for the island and its residents and movies are great fun to watch being made.

    Very funny. You didn't get me though...and as much as I like both of those actors, I hope a movie production never comes to Ocracoke!

    You were quite believable on this one, Philip.
    Not an April fools prank in 2008- I recall Richard Gere aboard the Hatteras/Ocracoke ferry filming NlGHTS IN RODANTHE.
