Do you receive many tourist inquiries about the area’s connection to the classic 1991 “Cape Fear” film starring Nick Nolte and Jessica Lange?
Connie Nelson, communications and public relations director for Wilmington CVB, said she occasionally gets asked if the 1991 film “Cape Fear” was filmed in the area. But contrary to popular the belief, neither the original 1962 classic nor the 1991 remake were filmed in the area. The 1991 movie starring Nick Nolte and Jessica Lange was filmed in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
