Celebrity sightings are not an uncommon occurrence in Charleston, especially when film projects are in town. There have already been two high-profile projects thus far this fall…

Jessica Biel is filming in both Charleston and Florence this month for her new series, The Sinner, in which she portrays Cora Tanner, a young mother who commits an unexpected act of violence. The crime drama is based on Petra Hammesfahr’s best-selling book by the same name.
Casting calls for this project were delayed due to Hurricane Matthew, but those likely wrapped last week. We do not yet know the specific filming locations.
Jessica was spotted aboard the USS Yorktown earlier this month with adorable son Silas in tow. She and husband Justin Timberlake have also been spotted on Sullivan’s Island, where they have been renting a home.
Cameras have also been spotted on Broad Street, steps away from The Governor’s House Inn. Marlon Wayans is in town filming a new Netflix movie entitled Naked. The project is a remake of Naken, a quirky Swedish film. Cast and crew were on Broad last weekend (October 22nd), and Wayans was spotted filming on King Street earlier in the month. The location was on Upper King at Ink N Ivy, a new restaurant from a Charlotte based franchise that should be opening soon. Interested parties can follow them on Facebook for grand opening details.
