Winona Ryder's new TV series for Netflix will film in Atlanta, Georgia instead of North Carolina.
According to WilmywoodNC.com
, Netflix has chosen to film Winona Ryder's new movie in Atlanta, Georgia after strongly considering Wilmington, North Carolina.
I have just been told the original Netflix series starring Winona Ryder which had a close eye on Wilmywood, ultimately decided to go where most do these days. Georgia. A couple of heads of production scouted here last week and were very pleased with Wilmington. The creatives especially. One of the main reasons they really liked Wilmington is it could easily double for the town of Montauk which is located on the very eastern tip of Long Island. It’s a fishing village but also has very expensive estates, and a lot of very old money. Certain areas of Wilmington could perfectly double for Montauk and from what I have been told the creatives agreed.
But money always wins in the end. Because North Carolina is into its new fiscal year with absolutely ZERO dollars for film, Wilmington lost yet another show.
The new series is expected to hire at least 300 new Atlanta actors and crew members.Which is great for the world's fastest growing film industry market but, bad news for North Carolina's dying film market.

Winona Ryder's new TV series is currently untitled but it will be a supernatural sci-fi drama.
The eight-episode thriller, previously titled “Montauk,” is set in the 1980s in the Long Island beach town and follows a 2-year-old boy who mysteriously vanishes into thin air. Family, friends and cops try to uncover the truth about his disappearance, which ends up involving top-secret government experiments, supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.
