It appears Durham is going to have a few famous visitors beginning next week. Traffic patterns will change, so check out the link for possible road detours.

Yes. This was covered in this thread:

Movie to be filmed in Durham

Here is the original article and my comment on the choice to film in Durham.

Hollywood bringing fame, fortune to Durham :: WRAL.com

I had to look up what "moribund" meant and the definition is - being in the state of dying - approaching death

So the movie is about a small city that is dying economically and they chose Durham to represent it.

While I am all for putting the Triangle on the map as much as possible, I hope this doesn't give anyone the wrong idea.

I was really just trying to attach the map, so people could see which roads would be closed for travel. Don't want to get into a discussion about why they chose Durham and all the negativity that brings.

Charlton Dude is always full of negativity and doom and gloom when it comes to Durham (or anywhere but Cary, for that matter). Not sure why that is...

Not true. As I have mentioned and posted before, I love SW Durham, Southpoint, Woodcroft Parkway, Duke Gardens, etc.

chill out with the anti-durham comments charlton dude, and, if you're attempting to **** off obama fans with your status, it's working.
