Market Street Saloon coming to Wilmington, NC

A restaurant on Market Street has gotten a makeover, but it doesn’t look shiny and new.

Instead, rusted-out cars and ivy that suspiciously crept up the side of Sticky Fingers over the past few nights have transformed the vacant restaurant at 5044 Market St. into a hideout for characters in “Revolution,” a new TV series that’s filming in the Cape Fear area.

“Revolution” is set 15 years in the future after an event changes life on earth: All electronic equipment ceases to function; airplanes fall from the sky and car engines stop running.

In the NBC series, a young woman named Charlie, played by Tracy Spiridakos (“Supernatural”), searches for her brother, who was kidnapped by a militia leader, while she seeks assistance from her estranged uncle.

Billy Burke from “Twilight” plays her uncle and Giancarlo Esposito from “Breaking Bad” is a militia leader.

The former Sticky Fingers will act as a rebel hideout during filming, which will take place between 1 p.m. and 4 a.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, according to a City of Wilmington film permit.

Passersby and motorists might get a glimpse of swordplay, a horse or two and several stunts as the good guys (the rebels) are attacked by the bad guys (the militia).

And if anyone hears gunshots in the area it’s likely film crews, according to the permit. But it’s always better to be safe than sorry, so if you are convinced there’s been an incident law enforcement should know about, call and report it.
