It would seem that there’s a project on the books that is older than the books themselves, and that’s where many pipes and manhole covers in New Hanover County need immediate attention and repair. This is called the Burnt Mill Creek project, and the problem is that this urgent construction project will be overlapping with the filming of Iron Man 3 in North Carolina.

There apparently were a few concerns about the vibrations and noise from the work would interfere with filming IM3, but now they say things are all worked out.

The two projects are working together and it would seem, from what I’m reading, that the filming project will have priority. Plus, the update project is so large that work crews will be able to head off to other parts of the town to do their work, out of the way of the production team.

Being that this movie is the largest feature film to take place in North Carolina, well, they had the right state of mind since movie projects always seem to bring in good money to a region while they’re there, and in some instances, bring attention to a region after a film. Case in point would be the Hunger Games tours in N. Carolina.

Iron Man 3 will be starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, the voice of Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, along with potential bad people being portrayed by Guy Pearce, maybe Rebecca Hall, and Ben Kingsley (Who won’t be the Mandarin, or so they say) and Andy Lau.

Shane Black is the new director and the movie is due out in May of 2013, with the plot focused around the Extremis armor story line.
