Congrats to Claire Danes for taking home an Emmy last night for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for our North Carolina shot, Homeland.

Offices for The Remaining are officially open and the cast will come into town tomorrow as they get ready for re-shoots.  Why the re-shoots?  Well without giving anything away, they decided to make some writing changes and decided to have a better outcome with a few of the scenes.  Now, I can tell you the crew is VERY glad the show is back.  Speaking with some crew members they said that although they will be a couple of very long shoot days this week, they had a great time shooting this movie earlier this year.  They enjoyed both the young cast and director on this flick.  “They were a great group of people to work with .”  They will be shooting Wednesday through Friday this week, although some have told me just Thursday and Friday.  I will find out more details.

Offices officially open today for Bolden!  Looks as though they moved into Hub B, then we transfer to Hub D next year.  Glad to have the film back that saved so many during the housing crisis.  Yep, if you remember, this movie kept a lot of people working and stores open with its budget exceeding $100 million.  So, thank you Dan Pritzker and the rest of the crew from Bolden!

filmjobsFinally, there have been some crazy rumors and I have no idea how or where this silliness started, so let’s this straight!  The NC Film Incentives HAVE NOT been cancelled. They will not sunset!  So tell, everyone to calm their little pants down!
