Now, yes I know it feels quite slow with just one production running right nwo, but trust me when I tell you, it’s about to get nuts!  And we sure do have a lot of local crew members working full time and they get paid more than peanuts, so how about a hand for all those jobs!!  Let’s review all that is coming! The end of April will bring us the start of production for Max Steel, The Sin Seer and FX’s How and Why.  Right on their heels is Sleepy Hollow, then a few weeks later we expect The Longest Ride to start up.  Of course this summer we can expect The Heart as well as the highly anticipated Untitled Armored Car project aka Loomis Fargo. That is a lot of freakin’ jobs folks!

Sarah-Michelle-Gellar-Ringer-Comic-Con37 years ago, the world became a little safer when Buffy The Vampire Slayer herself was brought into the world. April 14 is the day to be exact. This NY girl has been in the film industry since she was first discovered at the ripe old age of 4! Sarah Michelle Gellar is linked to NC film with I Know What You Did Last Summer which filmed in and around NC in 1997. The film went to Burgaw, Durham and Southport.

The Emmy award winner was not yet Mrs. Freddie Prinze Jr., but she did work on the film with him. Sarah is of course known to be a part of the TV family as well as big screen with her role as Buffy, but she has also done voiceover work for The Simpsons, American Dad and Robot Chicken. She can be seen AND heard as “Sydney Roberts” on the television show, The Crazy Ones. Happy Birthday from Wilmywood, Sarah

220px-28_Days_PosterLast but not least, Happy Release-a-versary to 28 Days. (April 14, 2000) The film was shot in many NC locations including Asheville, Black Mountain and right here in Wilmywood where many of our EUE/Screen Gems stages and crew were utilized. This story of a newspaper columnist who is court ordered to rehab was brought to life by director, Betty Thomas as well as the film’s star– Oscar AND Golden Globe AND MTV movie award AND SAG award AND Teen Choice award winner, Sandra Bullock! (She must have a huge mantel at home!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 04/14/2014 Mtv Movie Awards, PaxEast Afterglow, Casting Call for How and Why and More.

By Sheila Brothers and April Vickery

Goood Morning!  Hope you had a great Azalea Fest Weekend.  This was the first Azalea Fest I have missing in 13 years.  Geesh!  But hey, it was worth it to follow our local boys, Hank and Jed Movie Pictures to Boston for PAX East.  A crazy time and worth every bit of dragging ass this morning!  Here’s a few pics from the weekend.

Our Domies are running two Units today. They will be splitting counties, one in Southport as they head back to the church and the other next to Screen Gems on One Tree Hill Way.

JuliaSarahStoneFX’s How and Why put out their first casting call over the weekend, and Ashli’s definitely got a tough one to cast!  But hey, this is Wilmywood!  So, spread the word for our girl!  See below:

WILMINGTON,NC-HOW AND WHY PILOT LOOKING FOR CAUCASIAN MALE AND FEMALES (WOULD LOVE TO FIND TWINS ). THERE IS A LOT OF INFORMATION SO PLEASE READ VERY CAREFULLY AND ONLY SUBMIT IF YOU MEET REQUIREMENTS.

We have one actress who will be playing triplets. I am in need to find 2 photo doubles (would LOVE to find twins!!) who can match her from behind to be used when we need to see all three triplets in a shot. We do have a young actress playing the role, but she is playing a tomboy so from behind it is very likely she will look like a boy. With that said, I would accept options of boys and girls but everyone would need to prepare to alter hair to match how they decided to have the actress look (but I am also seeing if production would consider using wigs). It would also be great if child has some acting experience because they might be asked to read lines off camera in some scenes.

This is a paid position, but the rate has not been finalized, but it shouldn’t be less than $125 per day. Those selected would need to be available to work in Wilmington, NC on Thursday May 1st, Friday May 2nd, Monday May 5th and Tuesday May 6th (please note that these dates can always change). Because this is such a specific look I am looking for, I am willing to consider kids from outside of the Wilmington area, but please note that we will not be able to pay for travel and lodging.

So here is what I am looking for: 11-15 yr old Males and Females 5’4 ½” and petite. I am not sure what color they are going to have our actresses’ hair, so I would open it to blondes and brunettes. The following sizes are in reference to girl sizes: Top/shirt- xs or 0, pants/skirt: 0, hips: 28, 7 or 7.5 shoe. In reference for boys, just need options of small petite guys who wear size small.
If interested and you meet requirements please send recent photos (one shoulder and up, one full body length facing the camera and then one photo full body length facing away from camera), age, height, weight, wardrobe sizes, contact information, and your location to howandwhyextras@gmail.com SUBJECT:PHOTO DOUBLE

cats eyeOn Saturday, the Wilmywood flick Cat’s Eye turned 29 years old. The horror movie written by author Stephen King (maybe you’ve hear of him) and directed by Lewis Teague  incorporates a stray kitty into three different suspense stories. The film stars a young Drew Barrymore who was also the lead in another little NC film by Stephen King’s Firestarter in 1984!

Speaking of novels up on the big screen, have you caught up with Resurrection? Our beloved NC boy Jason Mott (author The Returned which the story is based on) and Kevin Sizemore are making NC film proud. Last night , Kevin’s character “Gary” was introduced and boy did he make an entrance!! Only a couple of more shows before the season finale. You have all week to catch up and then be on Twitter to live chat with the cast using the #Resurrection hashtag.

Speaking of that ABC hit show, it looks like the EW Community folks want me to save my interview with Jason for the finale. They have something in mind that I am quite excited about for this week, so I am happy to oblige!

He was once known simply as the “wild eyed guy” on MADtv and the 7-Up “Up Yours” guy but these days, Orlando Jones is a household name. A name I’m sure many people will be tagging Twitter posts today to say “Happy Birthday” to Sleepy Hollow‘s own “Captain Frank Irving.”  Did you know that not only has Orlando been in over 30 films in his career, that he is also credited s_rg_fsborlando0910_with some video game voiceover action as well? He is a father, a husband and a producer, writer and director. Don’t wait until Sleepy Hollow returns to Wilmywood in May,  follow Orlando on Twitter  and tell him today! Happy birthday from the Sleepyhead HQ!!  P.S. FREE FRANK!

dean-norris-64th-annual-primetime-emmy-awards-02Big shout out to Wilmywood domie, Dean Norris who turns 51 today! We all know Mr. Norris as “Big Jim” the power loving local crazy man of Chester’s Mill and if you follow him on Twitter, you can see that he’s quite the larger than life man outside of the dome too!

This SAG award winner and Harvard grad with the charismatic smile has been in over 30 films and too many TV shows to count! (I don’t have enough fingers and toes!) Wilmywood has gotten to know Mr. Norris over the course of the UTD series and couldn’t be happier to know that he’s here to celebrate his birthday with us. I’m SURE the Twitter feed on this birthday celebration will be something we won’t want to miss.  “Hey, Dean!  F*** You, Buddy!  Happy Birthday!”

Happy Hump Day my Wilmywood peeps!  Oh boy, as if last week wasn’t enough info to keep us 5 crews deep for the year, we got more intel coming in about new projects and some fun tidbits of those that are here.

RumorslogoFirst off, Under the Dome is shooting in Burgaw today. Have a great shoot my film peeps!

Now, let’s get right to it, my favorite thing to write about.  It’s time for Rumors from the Lot!!

choiceNow, having one Nicholas Sparks flick in Wilmywood is pretty awesome, but what if there were two?  Well, there might just be.  According to my sources, Nicholas Sparks is looking for a triple play, but not in book order.  The Best of Me (2010 Novel, shooting in New Orleans now), The Longest Ride (2013 Novel, pre-production in Wilmington now) and now the latest rumors from the lot say he is jumping back a good 7 years to bring The Choice (2007 Novel, currently in development) to the big screen.  And word has it, Wilmywood is high on their list when it comes to a production home.

Sparks however isn’t the only one sniffing around.  My sources are telling me that Lifetime has been giving Wilmywood a wink and a nod as a possible hub for one of their projects.  Which one?  Well, I can speculate, however, I’d rather not jump the gun on that quite yet.
