Crews put finishing touches on location for Nicholas Sparks movie

SOUTHPORT, NC (WECT) - Crews were out Thursday putting the finishing touches on a fish house, called Fishy Fishy, which will be used in the upcoming movie Safe Haven.

The film is an adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel with the same name.

Somebody's Child was also filming in town, along with Iron Man 3.

Businesses say it's not that big of a deal because they've seen quite a few movies shoot in the area, but that it's always great to have cast and crews in town to jumpstart the summer season.

Also, many of the business owners say they now keep a camera on hand, just in case they run into someone famous.

They say they're not too scared to ask them to stop and take a picture, and of course, to see their storefronts on the big screen.
