THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 07/09/2014 One & Two, Yellow Footprints, Locations and more.

Thanks to you, we uncovered where they are shooting the supernatural flick, One & Two.  They are filming in Winston Salem.  It’s about two siblings living in a remote area who have supernatural powers but they are and have been stifled by their overbearing father.  Producing in Kim Sherman Andrew Droz Palermo is the director.  Production begins in about two weeks.

yellowfootprintsICYMI: The feature film Yellow Footprints (working title) is headed to Wilmywood.  It’s a coming of age movie that rises above the war and tells an empowering story of a Female Marine who struggles at home and on the front lines in a traditionally all male Marine Infantry Unit.  The title will probably be changed before its release.  Production offices will open at the end of the month for this indie-film with folks going into production in September.  CHECK ON THEIR FB PAGE

Hate to say I told you so, but…  Woo Hoo!

Missed the premiere episode?  WATCH IT NOW! 

nielsenNow how did Under the Dome do in the ratings game? Well, the initial reports for Season two put them at #1 in their time slot! AND Under the Dome beat everything else on broadcast television FOR THE ENTIRE NIGHT, doubling Mistresses in their A19-49 demo, plus beat Master Chef and Bachelor by a landslide as well.  Now compared to its season one premiere it was down 1/3. The same-day ratings show we had 9.4 Million viewers for A18-49 with a 2.2. However, once we get the full report including the DVR numbers, the viewership will swoosh up in numbers over the coming days.  We will see if the numbers tick up or down later today.  READ FULL REPORT

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 05/21/2014 Mike Doyle joins Max Steel, Loomis Fargo, Ashby, HB 1142 and more.

Happy Hump Day loves!!  Finally got some confirmations this week.  Let’s go!

My sources are telling me that the feature film, Ashby, starring Mickey Rourke, Nat Wolff, Emma Roberts and Sarah Silverman will be shot in Charlotte, NC  They should be rolling by mid-June.

Zach GalifianakisI got a confirmation from Relativity Media that they are taking the Untitled Armor Car Project aka Loomis Fargo to Asheville and will set up offices in that western part of the state as well.  Don’t fret!  Zach Galifianakis,  Owen Wilson, and Kristen Wiig will be headed our way to shoot a couple weeks in Wilmington as well.  They go into production in July.

mike_doyleThe trades finally announced that Mike Doyle has joined the cast of Max Steel. He is best known for his roles in Laws of Attraction, Green Lantern and P.S. I Love You, however he will make his next appearance on screen with Clint Eastwood’s big screen adaptation of Jersey Boys.  Rumor has it he will be playing Max’s dad, but I cannot confirm that at this time.

HB1142Yesterday, we found out Reps Susi Hamilton, Frank Iler, Ted Davis and Becky Carney (a blend of Rep and Dems) got together and filed HB 1142 in the NC House. This house bill would keep the state’s tax incentives for film projects from ending or as we call it “sunsetting.”  It was also raise the minimum to qualify for the incentives from $250,000 to $300,000.  Read HB 1142 NOW

Remember however, there will be short term wins and losses over the next few weeks.  So, don’t get too excited, but it is a great first step to get the ball rolling.

Now, we have done all we can do, letting Gov. Pat McCrory know that we need his help.  It’s time to move on to phase two.  Kinda going back to where we started.  But now more than ever it is very important we reach out to our own legislators and tell them that we support our film incentives and want them to stay!  Don’t know who represents you?  No problem!  (See Below)  It is crucial that you only reach out to those in your district!  Hate to say it this way, but honestly, if you are not a voter in another legislator’s district they could not care less about what you have to say. Make sure in your calls or email to your own representatives you stay positive and let them know how film impacts your life.

Loomis Fargo adds Kristen Wiig to cast!

Kristen WiigWe were so bummed that Kristen Wiig wouldn’t be here because the feature film The Heart fizzled out, however, it was a pleasant surprise to see she has been cast in what we still call Loomis Fargo to star opposite Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson.  Relativity has already set a release date for the untitled armored car project. It is  Aug. 14, 2015.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kristen will play the workplace crush of Galifianakis, “an unhappy armored car driver. Using her feminine wiles, she gets him to join her and her accomplices in their plan to rob a bank vault, but has no plans to link up with him once the deed is done.” (THR)

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 04/30/2014 – RIP Shannon Rippy, Locations, Loomis Fargo, Lee Norris, NC Film Rally and more.

ShannonGood morning my loves. The morning began with sadness and our hearts are aching for those who knew and loved Shannon Rippy. Her body was discovered in Hampstead yesterday.  James Opelton Bradley, who has been convicted of murder in another county in 1990, is being held in the New Hanover County jail on a charge of first-degree murder. Bradley will make a court appearance 2 p.m. today. READ MORE NOW

Schedules might be changing due to the weather today, but here is where you might spot some action:

  • How and Why should be shooting at the 6th St bridge and driving around Roland Grise Middle School
  • The Sin Seer – Front St and 2nd St
  • Under the Dome is staying dry on the sound stages
  • Max Steel – Somewhere mysterious in the downtown area.

Yesterday, the news came out about our Christmas in Conway star, Andy Garcia, making his way back to Wilmywood for Max Steel!  A HUGE thank you to the production team.  Check out their slate!

Here’s a fun little tidbit.  For two days we will be having 5 productions running at one time, but it could possibly be 7 units shooting at once.  That is crazy and I love every minute of it!

FIN_Night

Now, I have been waiting, keeping my ears open about this one, but I have officially heard the same rumor three times now.  Word has it, Loomis Fargo might be heading west of the state to Asheville and only utilizing Wilmington for a few shots.  Now, this might be devastating to some, HOWEVER, if this does happen, it could be a really good thing.  Wilmington cannot have all the projects.  The more we spread the shows out, the more other counties see how good film is for their area.  Still waiting for more details, but that is all I know for now.  You know the film biz is a crazy biz, things change everyday.  I will keep you posted.

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.
