Wilmywood, NC Film Crew Member of the Day:
Good morning! It’s another busy day in Wilmywood. Finally, we can start talking about these guys again. Danny McBride wants you as Eastbound and Down Season 4 is underway! And I would just like to put something out there one more time. With EBD and Tammy shooting here, I am betting we will be seeing Will Ferrell at some point as he is producing both projects. Pure speculation, but I would drop a 20 on that bet. I will let you know if I hear anything.
CASTING: The 1st Extras Casting call for EBD is underway in Wilmington. NCasting is looking for “HOT GIRLS” between 21 year to 32 years old for an upscale night club scene to shoot at the end of May. Check out NCasting’s FB page for complete details.
CREW: Looking for crew work? Send resumes to email@example.com, put your occupation in the subject line.
Two out of the three productions are at our beautiful beaches. You have a chance at some star sightings North and South today.
Melissa McCarthy and the Tammy crew moves from Castle Hayne to Carolina Beach today adding Dan Aykroyd and Susan Sarandon to the mix. They are shooting at Carolina Beach State Park this morning. I stopped by the set yesterday and I don’t see how anyone can not burst out laughing and ruin the scenes with Melissa’s brilliant comedic performances. I am really looking forward to seeing this movie!
I also stopped by the set of The Perfect Summer yesterday. Lots of great local crew on this one. Plus, you can’t go wrong shooting at the beach. The cast was in great spirits as well. Jason Castro, JD Banks and Justin Barnhill were getting ready for their scene. They are back in Wrightsville Beach again at the surf shop (Aussie Island). FYI – If you are a fan of the American Idol contestant, Jason’s last day on set is today, so get your gawking in while you can. Now, I have to put the spotlight on Justin Barnhill for a moment as he is a local boy (Maple Hill) turned sensation especially in the modeling world.
Love to see success come out of North Carolina. Aside from modeling, he is pursuing an acting career and is off to a great start. The 21 year old recently did two episodes of Banshee and now he, of course, is filming The Perfect Summer. Kudos my friend!
Under the Dome is taking it down a notch after big sets and explosions yesterday on Castle St. They are shooting on Chestnut St. this morning then heading to the lot for the remainder of the day.
In case you missed it yesterday, major rumors swirling about 20th Century Fox’s Sleepy Hollow shooting in ILM for the rest of the season. No details yet, but I will keep you posted!
