BOILING SPRING LAKES, NC (WECT) - A major Hollywood production is taking over the city of Boiling Spring Lakes.

For the past two weeks, Spring Lake Park has been closed to the public while crews build a temporary set for the filming.

Starting Monday, Adobe Productions Inc. will be shooting several scenes for the hit film Tammy starring Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, and Dan Aykroyd.

The park has been transformed into Crawford's Beach Boat and Jet Ski Rental Office, because the script calls for a few summer scenes.

The park will remain closed as film crews plan to shoot on Monday May 21 and Tuesday May 22, weather permitting.

Drivers should be aware of a road closure on Juniper Road between Pine Road and Ash Road on Monday and Tuesday.

The production company has also hired three BSL Police officers who will work on Monday and Tuesday from 6 a.m. -8 p.m. to control traffic and monitor crowds.

BSL City Manager Jeff Repp says this type of advertisement is priceless for the city and they hope to land more film productions in the future.

According to IMDB, Tammy is a comedy about a woman who hits the road with her hard-drinking grandmother after losing her job and learning her husband has been unfaithful.
