WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 06/13/2013

 

Just 24 hours until the HUGE Under the Dome Premiere ticket giveaway!  Free Ticket Friday begins at 7am tomorrow!  Go here for all the details! CBS put out a GREAT sneak peek yesterday, you really gotta see, Go Under the Dome with Stephen King.  The good folks head back to Currie, NC today.

The Tammy crew still on Cabbage Inlet doing the huge 4th of July Bash scene with a full cast.  Kathy Bates, Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Gary Cole, Mark Duplass, and Sandra Oh.  Fireworks are supposed to light the night for the scene, but the weather might hold them off until tomorrow night.

MULLET ALERT!  Eastbound and Down heads downtown.  They will be shooting at the Hilton and one of my favorite places to dance Sputnik on Front St.

Heads up for tomorrow, Eastbound and Down will be shooting a fun drag racing scene at the intersection of Princess Place Dr. and 23rd Street from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm and intermittent traffic will be allowed through this intersection.  SO, if you are flying out, make sure you give your self a lot more time than planned.

The City of Southport has set a new record for tourism numbers this year, thanks to film productions taking over the town. The Southport visitors’ website numbers have reached an all-time high as well as those stopping by the office. They say Safe Haven alone has taken them to a whole new level.

NevadaANd finally an FYI for ya.  Nevada has gotten into the game. Starting Jan. 1, productions that shoot at least 60 percent in-state and spend $500,000 to $40 million there will be eligible to earn a transferable tax credit worth 15%-19% of their in-state qualified expenses up to $20 million.

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every weekday morning at 7:30am and 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!
