The Wilmington, North Carolina portion of Iron Man 3's shoot is winding down this month, with production shifting to Fort Lauderdale, Florida starting October 1. Here are some excerpts from the press release issued by the Greater Fort Lauderdale organization.

"Greater Fort Lauderdale is on the alert for an extraordinary group of visitors from Marvel Studios, including an invincible super hero. Broward County will welcome cast and production crew beginning Oct. 1 for the third and final installment in the solo superhero saga Iron Man 3. The Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Office of Film & Entertainment announcement of the blockbuster production will include locations in Broward County's Dania Beach, and other neighboring South Florida communities.

"We have had two very exciting back to back years of major film production in Greater Fort Lauderdale - we rocked with Rock of Ages last summer with Tom Cruise, Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin. Now we have the marvelous Marvel comic book hero," said Noelle Stevenson, Film Commissioner, Broward Office of Film & Entertainment. The Iron Man 3 cast includes Robert Downey Jr., Guy Pearce, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, Don Cheadle, and Jon Favreau. "Of significance is that the filmmakers can conveniently shoot a variety of landscapes here, from city skyline to 23 miles of pristine sun-splashed beaches to nature unleashed in the Everglades," Stevenson noted.

Greater Fort Lauderdale's campaign to showcase its production-friendly attributes is paying off with the attraction of millions of dollars of film, TV, commercials, print and music video work. The county provides impressive added value and incentives to keep productions on target and on budget, including no permit fees, dedicated film-friendly hotels and community, professional studio and production offices, and the Preferred Production Pass (P3) which offers special values at area attractions, restaurants and film and entertainment vendors.

It isn't known how long production is expected to stay in the Florida city at this time.

Iron Man 3 was released May 3rd, 2013 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Jon Favreau, Ben Kingsley, James Badge Dale. The film is directed by Shane Black.

    @Jacob-Fredrick@skywise I imagine the Avengers will be a trilogy, so we have at least 3 more films of RDJ Iron Man...

    @Jacob-Fredrick I would be ok with that. It will be hard to adjust but get the right actor and I can get behind it.

    @Jacob-Fredrick 3rd and final...for now.

    Until the reboot. I think RDJ has done very well with the series. Lets not forget the Avengers movies that will definatly be coming. I imagine that after, presumably 6 films as Iron Man, he is ready to try out something different.

    @aylagas55 I know what you mean. I used to live in South Florida as well. I wish i could be there when they start filming there. I assume though, that they will have closed off areas when they start filming there though.
