WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Andy Garcia and Mandy Moore are joining the cast of Christmas in Conway.

According to Brent Shields, a Hallmark Hall of Fame Executive Producer, the two will join Mary-Louise Parker in the production.

The movie will start filming in Wilmington August 5.

According to a Facebook post on Hallmark Hall of Fame's page, Garcia plays Duncan Mayor, who decides the perfect Christmas present for his beloved – but ailing – wife, Suzy (played by Parker), is a ride on a real-deal Ferris wheel, set up in their own back yard.

The Ferris wheel will be built behind a home on Forest Hills Drive. Construction started Monday.

Moore will play Suzy's nurse in the film, which will air on TV later this year.
