WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 06/07/2013 – Reese Witherspoon coming to Wilmywood?

Even with Tropical Storm Andrea, Wilmywood’s pushing through like the postal service…how’s that go again?  Through rain, sleet, mudslides and dog poop?  Yes, the show must go on.

utd_wilmington_premiere_sunnyUnder the Dome will be…well, under the dome.  All stage work for these guys and gals today.  The ticket giveaway for the big Local Premiere with the Q&A with Cast, Producers and Stephen King begins next week!  Make sure you tune into Sunny 104.5 or visit the radio station web site!

Eastbound and Down is scheduled to shoot today.  They don’t plan on cancelling for the weather.  They will be shooting a montage so they will be all over the place today.

It’s Day 25 for Tammy.  They move from the Blue Post to the Inn at Wilmington on Market St.  Gary Cole continues his awesomeness on set with Melissa McCarthy today.  I spent a lot of time with him yesterday chattin’ it up in between takes as I got play Connie the Bartender.  Very nice guy and so talented.   It was Gary, Melissa, Susan Sarandon and Mark Duplass.  They shot one scene all day, and the hilarious ad-libs were awesome, I can’t wait until this flick comes out next summer just to see which takes make the cut!

Kudos to WECT for getting this scoop.  How would you like to see Reese Witherspoon make her way to Wilmington?  It could happen as they had some scouts for the movie, Three Little Words sniffing out Wilmywood.  The movie is about a young girl who moves through foster families for years until a volunteer (Witherspoon) helps the girl find her biological mother.  They are looking at a September start date.

Well, yesterday the Wilmington Film Commission made the official announcement about Sleepy Hollow filming here in Wilmywood. Rumor has it that the UPM for The CW’s One Tree Hill and NBC’s Revolution will now make a lateral move to Fox’s Sleepy Hollow.  David Hartley has been working in television since the early ’90s.  He also worked on The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles and Dawson’s Creek.   Cheers David!  Let’s hope the rumors are true!  Production begins next month.

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