Iron Man 3 Eyes North Carolina Shoot

If all goes according to their reports, Iron Man 3 will take over 10 sound stages at the city's Screen Gems Studios with production targeted to begin next June.

Little is known about the plot of the film, but Shane Black will take the director's seat (replacing the first two films' Jon Favreau) and will lend his writing talents to the script by Drew Pearce. At this time, Robert Downey Jr. is the only confirmed cast member, though it's highly likely that Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle will be returning as well.

Iron Man 3 is targeting a May 3, 2013 release.
