Movie filming hot spots in downtown Asheville Tuesday and Wednesday: BB&T, courthouse, diner, former bank

Jason Sandford | July 28, 2014 | Comments (0)



The Hollywood movie crew making the Loomis Fargo/unnamed armored car movie will take to downtown Asheville streets Tuesday and Wednesday for filming. The movie shoot hot spots include the streets around the BB&T building; the front of the Buncombe County Courthouse; the front (and inside) the former Blue Ridge Savings Bank on Pack Square; and College and Broadway streets.


The filming will make getting around downtown Asheville tricky. Look for road closures, as well as some intermittent traffic control on a variety of streets. Details, and maps, of the Loomis Fargo movie shoot in downtown Asheville here.


On Monday, there’s plenty of action inside the former Blue Ridge Savings Bank on Pack Square as crews prepped for the shoot. Also, an old Loomis Fargo armored car was spotted cruising down Broadway.

Here are a few other random tidbits about the movie production:

-Sources tell me that Owen Wilson has finished his portion of filming in Asheville and has left town.

-Wall Street Cheat Sheet recently published a list of Owen Wilson’s 12 Best Movie Roles. Bottle Rocket and Wedding Crashers are on the list.


-The party scene shot in Waynesville was a pool party scene.


-Candace Blanchard is an Asheville model and actress with extensive credits. She landed a role as actor Ken Marino’s girlfriend in the Loomis Fargo flick, so be on the lookout for her to have some screen time. (Marino plays a guy named Doug who lives in an upscale neighborhood and gets ticked off when the members of the heist gang move in next door.)

Most people who know Candace Blanchard know her as a mom, Charlotte resident or Mrs. NC America 2011, but the world is about to see a new side. As the co-star of the NC based film Curfew, she replaces the crown with something a little more gruesome. “This is one film my children will not be allowed to see,” said Candace.





















Director and author Richard Clark, Jr., who wrote the script for the forthcoming thriller ‘Curfew’ with Ryen W. Thomas, Colby Hopkins and Rodney Stringfellow, has released the first trailer for the smart and sexy Hitchcock-style thriller. Come on inside and check it out. You can also get involved and help get ‘Curfew in front of audiences nationwide.



Candace plays the role of an innocent and naive office worker Janet Miles decides to seduce her boss as a last ditch effort to land a big promotion, but she gets more than she bargained for. Quickly, Janet realizes that, and a night in the office can be a killer. Can Janet join forces with her new boss to survive the night?
