Cast, crew get 1st look at 'Bolden,' film about jazz pioneer

By The Associated Press

WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) — Cast and crew members are among the first to see the musical biopic "Bolden," which first started filming in 2007 in the Wilmington area.

The StarNews of Wilmington reports about 120 people attended an invitation-only screening Saturday of the movie about pioneering jazz musician Buddy Bolden.

Writer, director and financier Dan Pritzker began filming the movie 12 years ago, then followed up with reshoots in 2009 and 2010. In 2015, Pritzker scrapped major parts of the script, then rewrote, recast and reshot much of it in Wilmington, Atlanta and New Orleans through 2016.

So many people worked on the film that the credits run for 12 minutes.

The film stars Gary Carr ("Downton Abbey") as Bolden, who died in the Louisiana State Asylum in 1931.

The movie opens nationwide May 3.
