It’s the last day of Swirl Films’ The Perfect Summer today.  They will be in Carolina Beach on Lake Park Blvd.  Everyone really enjoyed Eric Roberts being here for the past few weeks.  And just a little FYI, Eric has been a very busy man.  He’s is involved in over 42 projects due to come out this year and some in 2014, plus he is acting in 7 other projects that are currently in development.  Very busy man indeed!  Go here for updated picture gallery of The Perfect Summer

 

On a side note, I think it’s kinda cool and interesting that most of the premium cable channels are shooting in North Carolina.  Eastbound and Down, Season 4 begins next week, right here in Wilmington.  Outside of the Wilmington area, Cinemax’s Banshee continues in Mooresville, while Showtime’s Homeland is just about under way and is casting their stand-ins and photo doubles in the Charlotte area as well.

Iron Man 3 box office update: This weekend IM3 pulled in $35.2 million domestically.  The domestic total is $337 million.  Worldwide, it has cleared ONE BILLION, making it #9 on the list of all time worldwide box office gross.

The Tammy folks went down to Spring Lake Park in Boiling Springs Lake early this morning and will stay there tomorrow as well.  With 203 extras on hand and Melissa McCarthy on a Sea Doo, how can this not be a fun scene to shoot! The fabulous Susan Sarandon is on set today as well.  They are on a rain delay but expecting to shoot as some point.  Here’s a couple of pics from this morning:

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every morning (Monday-Friday) at 8:30am on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Until then, that’s a wrap!
