RED ZONE has officially wrapped!   After their last day at Screen Gems Studios, the cast and crew headed to the Blue Post and celebrated!

RedZoneWrapAfter speaking with Richard Ross, the Sr. VP of production at NBC/Universal, he told me that they are very pleased with what they are seeing so far.  I am getting mixed intel, however, of whether or not they will come back to shoot here if the show gets picked up.  I am thinking we will find our if red will get green at the Upfronts next month in New York which is May 14th for CBS.

Congrats to our local actor, Josh Cohen for landing a guest starring role on the pilot RED BAND SOCIETY from Steven Spielberg which was shot in Georgia.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 04/03/2014 – Age of Miracles, The Heart, Sleepy Hollow, Loomis Fargo, Bolden and Way More!

Happy Thursday my loves!  What a whirlwind yesterday, huh?  Well, guess what?  Here comes some more! AND NOW IT’S TIME FOR [INSERT BILLOWING ECHO-Y VOICE] RUUUUMMOOOORS FROM THE LOT!

sleepy-hollow1SLEEPY HOLLOW will be bringing more monsters, IchAbbie and perhaps Yolanda to the fans.  Rumor has it there will be more episodes this season, as many as 18.  I will be speaking with Orlando soon, and hopefully he will get us some more deets.

BoldenMore news about BOLDEN!  Looks like the indie flick will be opening offices again very soon.  THEY MEAN IT THIS TIME! Though they do not have an official schedule yet,  I heard they will resume production at the end of the summer/early fall.  AND I heard there offices are all the way out in Rocky Point.  Crazy, right?  No word yet who will be replacing Anthony Mackie for the lead role.  And who knows, maybe he will come back to the project…we will find out soon enough.

Kristen WiigThe indie flick, THE HEART from Indian Paintbrush Productions is coming to North Carolina.  Now, I know they have been checking us out here in Wilmywood, but I cannot confirm they will be filming here…yet!  Regardless, North Carolina will see a great cast!  Kristen Wiig, Sam Rockwell and we would welcome back Allison Janney! Wiig will star as a cash-strapped woman who agrees to transport black market organs with a man she just met, to be played by Rockwell. They want to get started ASAP, so we should know the rest of the details and exact location VERY soon!  Producing is Steven Rales, Mark Roybal, Kevin J. Walsh and Nora Skinner.  Nat Faxon & Jim Rash are writing and directing.

Zach GalifianakisUNTITLED ARMORED CAR PROJECT (aka LOOMIS FARGO) has named their Line Producer. It’s our LP from SAFE HAVEND. Scott Lumpkin.  He will be heading our way after he finishes up on THE BEST OF ME in Louisiana. And I am not sure who I am more excited about  coming back to North Carolina, Owen and Zach or Producer Lorne Michaels!  North Carolina is a greenlight, waiting for final confirmation about Wilmington, but my multiple sources insist it will be here.

Catherine-hardwickeLast night, one of my rumors from yesterday morning got a confirmation.  AGE OF MIRACLES will be indeed shooting in North Carolina, now I am waiting for a Wilmywood confirmation. I do know Wilmington was in the finals for them.  Hopefully, I will have that by the end of the day.  We shall see!

sofia-vergaraFor about a month now I’ve heard from three different sources the mention of BIG SEXY, but no one knew much about it.  Seriously, they would say ‘I am hearing Big Sexy’ and I was like, ‘what about it?’ and they were like, ‘I dunno.’  Well, I found out yesterday that it’s a feature from Red Granite Pictures and it stars Sofia Vergara and Pierce Brosnan. I have no idea if this will shoot here, but keep your ears peeled cuz that name keeps popping up.  If you hear anything, lemme know!

tscc3

Now moving on to what’s shooting.  Both UNDER THE DOME and RED ZONE are shooting on the sound stages today.  But this will be RED ZONE‘s final fun day as tonight they will cry out, “That’s a wrap!”

JewishFilmFestREMINDER: The Wilmington Jewish Film Festival takes the stage tonight, and then again on Saturday and Sunday.   Four films by Israeli, French and Czech filmmakers will be shown at Thailian Hall on the main stage.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 04/02/2014, HUGE Rumors From the Lot, Loomis Fargo, Secrets & Lies, Age of Miracles, Impact Study

WUIW

Good God!  An explosive amount of news came out yesterday!  I don’t know where to even begin!  Hmmm, let’s start with the fun stuff!  AND NOW IT’S TIME FOR [INSERT BILLOWING ECHO-Y VOICE] RUUUUMMOOOORS FROM THE LOT!

RumorslogoIf you remember back in the blog for Marth 17th, I reported that Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke was here scouting,  but I had no idea which of the 5 projects in development she was working on next.  Well, I did some more digging and put my ear to the ground.  It looks as though she was here for AGE OF MIRACLES.  The film is based on the Karen Thompson Walker best-Catherine-hardwickeselling novel of the same name. Seth Lochhead (Hanna) has adapted the screenplay. River Road Entertainment’s Bill Pohlad will produce. According to a press release announcing Catherine’s attachment to the project (over a year ago mind you) Age of Miracles is set amidst an advancing catastrophe after the Earth’s rotation mysteriously slows. It’s a suspenseful and romantic snapshot of one young girl’s adolescence, a poignant family drama, and a heartrending glimpse into the everyday tragedies and triumphs that define what it is to be human in a world that might just be ending.  As for details, well my sources tell me that it is indeed coming and they are looking at a June start.  That would mean offices would open fairly soon.  With all that being said, I am still going to keep this in the rumor section for now.  But if you are a fan of reading a book before you see the movie, I highly reccomend you pick up a copy.

Zach GalifianakisMore details are coming out about LOOMIS FARGO starring Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis.  Not long ago rumors were flying about this comedy caper heading to Winston-Salem.  However, my other sources are saying otherwise.  The latest scoop is that the name has reverted back to ARMORED CAR and that it will indeed be shot here in Wilmywood.  When?  Well, my sources say that they plan on opening offices in May with a production start in July.

secretsLiesWhat you think I am done?  Honey, I’ve been workin’ like a fiend trying to get you all the scoop.  Let’s move on to recently wrapped SECRETS & LIES. Some said S&L was moving to Charlotte.  Others said no, they are staying here.  They are both correct.  The latest Intel is that S&L would shoot here in Wilmywood to complete their 10 episode commitment, which means they could be back this summer.  Then, after those ten or if they have a season two, they would move to Charlotte.  They said have fully established locations they cannot leave behind within those first 10 episodes.

michael-cera-john-hawkesHoly Chiptole, I’ve actually got more scoop, but I am saving that for tomorrow!  So what else is going on?  Yesterday we announced FX’s HOW AND WHY has officially opened up offices at EUE/ScreenGems Studios. The pilot starring Michael Cera and John Hawkes is now accepting crew resumes. Please send resumes to howandwhypilot@gmail.com with your position in the subject line.

ncfilmEven though all that cool stuff is happening perhaps the BIGGEST news was the Impact Study that was FINALLY released yesterday!  This is HUGE!!!  The finding were exactly what we knew to be true, that Film=Jobs and NC gains from the industry being here.

“For every dollar of credit issued, the industry generated $9.11 in direct spending and contributed $1.52 in tax revenue back to North Carolina.”

$164M in business revenue to more than 1,000 small businesses across the State.”

“The incentive has allowed North Carolina to maintain a permanent crew base, providing 4,259 jobs at an average wage of $66,000, which is over a third higher than the national average for private industry ($41,750).”

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY 03/18/2014 – How and Why, Sleepy Hollow, Loomis Fargo, Red Zone, Kevin Sizemore, Jack Bender…

WILMYWOOD_READHEARWATCH_BLOG

Morning my beautiful peeps! Hope your Tuesday is as delicious as a cream-filled crepe with blueberry sauce! Sorry, I’m hungry. Let’s get started!
shanley copyATTENTION Ashley High School students!  Major hotness alert for today! Shanley Caswell, Stefanie Scott, and David Castro will be roaming the halls today at your school!  No, they won’t be interfering with your classes, unfortunately.  But you might catch a glimpse this afternoon!

the-originalsTONIGHT! Our North Carolina girl, Alexa Yeames will be on CW’s The Originals tonight as well as our Wilmington boy Jesse C Boyd. Alexa is playing Abigail and Jesse is playing Cary, Klaus’ distant werewolf relative. Both have done 3 episodes so far.

ChrisannVergesCongrats to Chrisann Verges.  She is officially the Line Producer on FX’s How & Why. Chrisann (pictured on left) is known for End of Watch (2012), Cyrus (2010), Valkyrie (2008) and her most recent stint as producer for HBO’s Silicon Valley which airs April 6th.  Welcome to Wilmywood Chrisann!

RumorslogoAnd finally some Rumors from the Lot. Got more news about Loomis Fargo, but it might not be news you wanna hear.  Now I definitely cannot confirm this, but I heard that Loomis Fargo is headed to Winston-Salem.  That would make sense since it will star our NC boy Zach Galifianakis. We will keep you posted if we hear otherwise.

EP Jack BenderPRODUCER/DIRECTOR JACK BENDER JOINS US ON THE SUNNY MORNING SHOW TOMORROW!   Tune in @ 8:30am during “What’s Up in Wilmywood” on Sunny 104.5 . We’ll be chatting about all things Dome and of course about his art exhibit. The Wilma W. Daniels Gallery (200 Hanover St.) is  showcasing Under the Dome’s Jack Bender’s art NOW through the 29th of this month.  Three of his pieces will be from Season One  of Under the Dome.  Think Pink Stars!  We will also get a sneak peek at some of the beautiful pieces for the upcoming season. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday 12pm-5pm.  However, a special night is reserved for you to mingle with the artist that is Jack Bender this Saturday, March 22nd from 6pm-9pm.

Meanwhile, the Domies head out to Chestnut Street to film today.

kevin-sizemoreThis Friday, our favorite Domie, Kevin Sizemore will join us on The Sunny Morning Show.   He will be on ABC’s Resurrection this Sunday and guess who else is popping up?  Well, when asked, he said “I think it’s this Sunday.”  LOL.  Remember Reverend Lester Coggins of Under the Dome?  It’s Ned Bellamy.  So we got some Wilmywood love on the Georgia shot show, based on the book The Returned by our Bolton, North Carolina boy Jason Mott.

Now onto Sleepy Hollow.  My sources are telling me that  offices are slowly opening over the next week as they gear up for season two.  Yesterday, our adorable Sleepy Writers tweeted a pic from the writers room.  Did you spot our new  producer/writer Albert Kim in the back!  He’s pumped to be on the show.

And can we thank Orlando Jones and Tom Mison enough for spreading some North Carolina Love!?  Stars promoting tourism.

Hold on, let me get this straight.  A show films here, brings in a ton a revenue, buys from a lot of local small businesses, create 100s of jobs, and the stars promote tourism, encouraging fans to visit?  Wow, this industry is horrible!  Shut it down immediately! Okay, I’m done. ::::wipes sarcasm from lips:::::

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 03/17/2014 Under the Dome, Red Zone, The Longest Ride, Catherine Hardwicke and more.

WILMYWOOD_READHEARWATCH_BLOG

Wooo Hooo!  Man, go ahead and ask me if I got any sleep this weekend.  Go ahead! Ask me! Hell NO!  But was it worth it?  Hell Yes!  We got the EXCLUSIVE over the weekend giving you the complete cast list for Nikki Toscano’s Red Zone!  But hold your horses, let’s do this one show at a time!

UTD_Dale Raoul_Andrea Grinnell

Dale Raoul made it into Wilmywood over the weekend as she is back Under the Dome.  After working through the weekend, the Domies are back on the sound stages this morning. Welcome back Dale!

Satellite Lots of stars were out and about in Wilmington this weekend.  First, was the Secrets and Lies wrap party Saturday afternoon over at Satellite Lounge.  Although they are done in Wilmington, they will be in Charlotte for two days this week.

tscc3

Now, on to Red Zone! 1900 was the place to be!  A private dinner was held for the director, James Foley, producers Nikki Toscano and Bill Johnson and some of the cast from Red Zone. Yes, they are all in town and we have the COMPLETE cast list. Find out who else was at the ritzy private dinner!  READ MORE NOW  Day one of production is today!  They will be shooting in the Forest Hills area!  Happy filming folks!

PhilWell, you know I have been bragging about our NC boy who wrote the book, The Returned.  It was adapted into the television series Resurrection. Well, April and I just happened to run into him at a fundraiser Saturday night! Celebrity comic book artist Phil Jimenez was in town to help raise money for the Wilmington based non-profit, JasonMottAnimal Warriors.  Mind blowing talent and a super nice guy!  But who did we discover is a comic book fan?  None other than author, Jason Mott.  I really think I embarrassed myself, I totally freaked out and went all fangirl on him!  Ha!  But he agreed to come talk to us after he meets his deadline on his latest book, so I couldn’t have been that horrible.  Or maybe this will be a pity interview! Either way, look forward to hearing him on The Sunny Morning Show on Sunny 104.5  in about two weeks!

NicholasSparksWhile some have been here since last week, other crucial office staff members for the Nicholas Sparks flick The Longest Ride flew in over the weekend.  Look for them to go into pre-production super soon!

Catherine-hardwickeAnd guess who else was sniffing around our hot town?  My sources tell me the one and only Twilight director, Catherine Hardwicke.  Yep, she’s got at least 5 projects brewing so who knows which one she’s scouting for.

1016242_434988879942442_1440392906_n

Also, guess which production was brought up again?  Loomis Fargo. I’ve got the scoop on that, too.  Find out all the details in tomorrow’s blog!  Damn, what a tease!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 04/12/13 – Nicholas Sparks, Jim Carrey, Lorne Michaels headed to Wilmywood?

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD

LISTEN TO PODCAST

Lots of exciting news today!  First things first, however.  Under the Dome will be filming later today on 15th St and also on the lot. They are shooting some interior scenes, so not too much to see as a bystander.

 

Okay, I can’t take it anymore!  Gotta dish the latest rumors!  First, Nights in Rodanthe, then Safe Haven and now it looks as though our New Bern native, Nicholas Sparks, is returning for the drama/romance, The Best of Me.  The adaptation dives into the lives of  a pair of former high school sweethearts who reunite after many years when they return to visit their small hometown.   The brilliant and beautiful Denise DiNovi is set to produce. Michael Hoffman is in talks to direct.  Loving the love, Nicholas!  Thank you for sticking with your hometown posse!

The excitement continues even though there is a bit of a delay.  Yes, Christmas will have to wait as Loomis Fargo has been pushed to August.  Jim Carrey stars in this comedy flick about a night guard at an armored car company in the Southern U.S. who organizes one of the biggest bank heists in American history.  Interestingly enough, one of the screenwriters is Danny McBride who is currently hanging out were in Wilmywood shooting his HBO show, Eastbound and Down.  Other notable players attached are Lorne Michaels (Producer) and Jody Hill (screenwriter for Eastbound and Down).  Jared Hess will direct.  Loomis Fargo is looking for a release date in 2014.

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you Monday morning and every morning (Monday-Friday) at 8:30am on Sunny 104.5.  Until then, that’s a wrap!
