Looks like one of our favorite local boys is packing his bags and taking a road trip.  Wilmington actor David Andrews has been booked a recurring role on The Whispers, from ABC Studios and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV. According to Deadline, it focuses on an “unseen force that is manipulating society’s most innocent – our children – to act in favor of its cause. As the kids unwittingly help this unknown enemy, the clock counts down in a suspenseful race to save humanity.”

David will play U.S. Secretary of Defense Frommer in a minimum 6-episode arc. The Whispers began production this week.  They will be shooting in Los Angeles and Vancouver.

Congrats David!  We love ya!

‘The Squeeze’ to hit theaters Spring 2015

squeezelogo

Writer/Producer/Director Terry Jastrow has just announced the completion of the Wilmywood shot feature film, The Squeeze. The golf caper which filmed here last fall stars Christopher McDonald, Jeremy Sumpter, Jillian Murray and Michael Nouri, along with some of our local actors including Michael Rosander, David Andrews, and Logan Siu to name a few.

The Squeeze is a true story about a young man from a small southern town who gets caught in between two notorious gamblers, until the stakes become a matter of life or death. The film has been submitted to the Toronto Film Festival in September.

According to a press release, Jastrow recently had its first industry private screening at United Talent Agency in Hollywood to an enthusiastic audience that included film distributors, cast and crew, Terry’s wife and co-producer, actress Anne Archer, and golfer Phil Mickelson.

“Making this movie is a dream come true,” says Jastrow. “For many years as a sports director working for the legendary Roone Arledge, I was schooled in the art of storytelling…’the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat, the human drama of athletic competition’…and am very pleased to apply those concepts now to movie making.”

Look for The Squeeze in theaters this Spring.

NC Film Incentives Update: 07/22/2014

NCFilmIncentUpdate

Just keeping you updated.  Nothing is scheduled for today concerning film.  The House is not reconvening until Thursday and we don’t know what time yet.

On a side note, my sources are telling me Thom Tillis is fundraising in D.C. so they won’t be meeting until the Speaker of the House returns.

However, this gives us more time to make our phone calls and let our voices be heard.

Don’t forget our Hail Mary pass …

If they are going to create new incentive program. If they are changing positions on providing  incentives to recruit business, then…

“We we want our current NC film incentives to be a part of this bill. HB 1224 would be the perfect vehicle to place our current film incentives in for ONE YEAR EXTENSION.”

They can call it a grant, call it a fund, but it is what it is, an incentive.  And we need to tell them so.

Let’s continue to make those calls today.

Will we have to continue to add an insert?

*“The creation of a closing fund and the expansion of the JDIG credit was a recommendation in our jobs plan, and it will increase North Carolina’s competitiveness against other states across the country,” said John Lassiter, chairman of the N.C. Economic Development Board.   INSERT:  UNLESS IT’S FILM RELATED.

*“The Department of Commerce, under the leadership of Secretary Sharon Decker, has made great strides in recruiting new jobs and businesses to our local communities, and this bill ensures it is well-equipped to expand its efforts and recruit even more jobs to our state,” said Sen. Rick Gunn (R-Alamance), co-chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee. INSERT: UNLESS IT’S FILM INDUSTRY JOBS.

*“Our responsibility as elected officials is to not only make sure students have the skills necessary to join the workforce when they graduate, but to also do all we can to ensure there are jobs for them when that time comes,” said Sens. Bill Rabon (R-Brunswick) and Bob Rucho (R-Mecklenburg), co-chairmen of the Senate Finance Committee. “That’s why we are giving local governments the option to designate additional revenues toward education at the K-12 and community college levels – because there is no greater investment we can make than in preparing our children for the future.”  INSERT: UNLESS YOU GO TO FILM SCHOOL.

*Quotes from Press Release from President Pro Tempore Senator Phil Berger (July 16th, 2014) “Senate Bill Expands Job Recruitment, Economic Development Toolkit.”

Ian McShane and Michael Rooker rumored to take on Bolden!

IanMachael

It’s looks like King Bolden Productions have secured two more cast members with one returning to Bolden! Michael Rooker will be back to play Pat McMurphy and it looks like Jackie Earle Haley will not be returning for his role as Judge Perry.  My sources tell me the incredible Ian McShane is being tapped to take his place.  As in the bad ass Al Swearengen in Deadwood and every other bad ass character he has played. Let’s all hope he signs that dotted line, and get him here to Wilmywood. Stat!

Gary Carr(Downtown Abby)is still up for the lead which was originally played by Anthony Mackie.
