Controversial One Tree Hill shoot is still a go

Posted by Debra Worley - email

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) - One Tree Hill will film a controversial scene at Wrightsville Beach later this month.

Crews are scheduled to film a scene with someone jumping off the Causeway Bridge August 31.

Town officials were upset about the shoot because it would have closed down the bridge for five hours.

After meeting with Department of Transportation officials and One Tree Hill production members, Town Manager Bob Simpson said one lane of the bridge will remain open from 6:00 - 11:00 the morning of the shoot.
