Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for one of America's favorite heartthrobs to grace the city of Destin this weekend, Matthew McConaughey.

McConaughey, along with Terry Bradshaw and Sara Jessica Parker, are scheduled to shoot several scenes for an upcoming movie called "Failure to Launch." That is, if mother nature cooperates.

Location managers won't say where they'll be shooting the scenes, but they do say it will be in a secluded, public beach area, and possibly a restaurant scene.

Locals seem to be pleased with the celebrities’ hopeful debut. The actors and cameras should be here this weekend, and shooting will last through the week.

The last major motion picture to film here along the emerald coast was "The Truman Show" featuring Jim Carrey.
