"Wetlands" filming continues today at former Crest library

Filming for the independent film "Wetlands" has shifted south and is ongoing at the former Wildwood Crest library, on Ocean Avenue between Wisteria & Columbine avenues.

The Harold J. Fox Building (named for its founder and dating to 1973) is being used as a police station for the movie, about an ex-Philadelphia cop who relocates to the shore in an attempt to reconnect with his estranged family.

"Wetlands" stars Adewale Akinnuoye-Abaje, Heather Graham and Christopher McDonald, and is currently scheduled to be released in 2017.

Last week, filming took place over two days on the Boardwalk in Wildwood, between Garfield & Spicer avenues, as well the beach off of Schellenger Avenue.

Additional scenes are scheduled to be shot elsewhere in Cape May County, Atlantic City and Millville in the coming weeks. Shooting may return to Wildwood at some point, as the production team's permit extends to May 14.
