“Fringe” star John Noble joins the Headless Cast.

Noble will play Henry Parrish, a kind and reclusive man who possesses supernatural powers that have the potential to help Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison).  He’s gonna need it.  If you remember a few days ago, we reported James Frain’s entrance to the show playing the character Rutledge, an Oxford Professor, who holds secrets that could cause problems that could affect Crane’s mission.

Sleepy Hollow kicked some ratings booty Monday with 10.1 million viewers and is officially the network’s most viewed fall drama debut in seven years.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 09/20/2013 Sleepy Hollow, Adrenaline, MTJM and Rumors from the Lot!

If you or your friends missed it, the series premiere of Sleepy Hollow will air again tonight on Fox at 9pm EST.  Starring Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie and Orlando Jones, watch as Ichabod Crane finds himself 250 years in the future.  Episode 2 airs Monday at 9pm EST.  Here’s a sneak peek:

Our Under the Dome creator has got a birthday tomorrow so send your shout outs to Stephen King.  He turns 66 this weekend.

radiothonA HUGE thank you to Wilmywood as the Sunny 104.5 Caring for Kids at NHRMC Radiothon was a success!  Thanks to you we raised more than $43,000 to help outfit the kids indoor and outdoor area of the soon to be built SECU Family House.  Our Ebay Auction items from some of our Wilmington productions brought in $3800.00!  Yay!  You guys rock!

The offices are set up and the crew of The Remaining will move in Monday.  They are set to do re-shoots beginning Wednesday and will continue through the end of the week.

AdrenalineThe gang from the movie Adrenaline starring John Schneider and local boy Michael Rosander did not reach their Kickstarter goal,  so they are relaunching using  Indiegogo. Support their new campaign as the movie is already 65% complete.   Thanks again for all your help supporting our local filmmakers.

johntommyREMINDER SHOOTING TONIGHT: Tommy Danger’s film crew is back in town and he is looking for as many volunteers as possible to come to Wrightsville Beach by the Johnny Mercer Pier to be a part of the new video they are working on for the More Than Just Me Foundation.  It will be from 5:30p-7:30p tonight.

RumorslogoNow onto RUMORS FROM THE LOT. We know at some point Journey 3, starring Dwayne Johnson, is expected to come here sometime in 2014, whenever Dwayne and his co-star Josh Hutcherson can get their schedules aligned.  So, maybe perhaps while they figure that out, we could be just have our piece of The Rock here in Wilmywood for the next installment of GI Joe.   Apparently, the admirably goofy G.I. Joe: Journey-2-Josh-Dwayne_320Retaliation made enough money that Paramount and Hasbro are joining forces one more time.  As of now, “a silly subtitle has yet to be decided on.” Word on the Lot is some department heads were contacted to check on the availability of crew. I will keep you posted to see if indeed we can add some credence to these rumors.  To have the Rock twice would sure be nice!

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you Monday morning (unless something breaks) and every weekday morning at 7:30am & 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!!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 09/19/2013 Need Stand-In TODAY and Sleepy Hollow

wife_assimOur fabulous local boys, the Olsen Brothers (and dad) from The Forgery and DV3 Productions has got an AMAZING film on their hands, “The Unknown Caller.”  I had the honor of checking out  a few scenes and per usual these guys blow it out of the water.  They can compete with any of the big dogs in Hollywood.  The film is complete but they have ONE pick up shot left and are looking for a Stand-In for today. It will only take 1-2 hours.  SO, if you are in the Wilmington area and have a look similar to this guys, they NEED you from 3-5pm today!

ASSIM: Middle eastern man, short hair, around 5’11. Medium build. Can be Latino dark instead of middle eastern dark.  MUST HAVE SIMILAR WARDROBE (as seen in photo) TO BRING TO SET.  Email: sheila_brothers@yahoo.com a full body shot and headshot along with weight, height and all contact info with ASSIM in subject line.

JFSleepy Hollow is shooting at the Brooklyn Arts Center today until about 11pm tonight.  And as Hunter of the Wilm on Film Blog reported yesterday, it looks like James Frain (True Blood/Grimm) is joining the cast and I don’t think he will make the mystery any smoother for Ichabod Crane.  James plays the character Rutledge, a nobleman in modern-day Sleepy Hollow who takes an interest in Crane, now posing as a visiting Oxford professor. Rutledge is also harboring a secret that could affect Crane.  And in cased you missed the Premiere episode of  Sleepy Hollow, it will run again this Friday night on Fox. 9pm

RATINGS: Sleepy Hollow and Under the Dome!!

Sleepy Hollow DECAPITATES the competition! 

sleepy

Don’t lose your head, but Sleepy Hollow was the No. 1 entertainment show on Monday in its time slot!!  

Congrats to the cast and NC Film crew of BOTH Under the Dome and Sleepy Hollow!

SLEEPY HOLLOW went up to 3.5 rtg in Adults 18-49 (vs. 3.4/9 this morning) with 10.1 Mil Total Viewers (vs. 10.0 Mil this morning)  According to EW, That’s 127 percent better than last fall’s premiere for The Mob Doctor.  And once we get the seven days of DVR playback, the numbers are predicted to skyrocket!   Joe Adalian of vulture.com mentioned, “Fox shows *rarely* exceed 10M viewers. Or 8M.”  Very impressive folks!  He also said via twitter, “SLEEPY HOLLOW also debuted ahead of January’s THE FOLLOWING, which had a 3.1 A18-49 in fast nationals/3.2 in finals.”

Sara Bibel  (TVbythenumbers.com) said Sleepy Hollow was “the highest broadcast drama premiere since the debut of Revolution and FOX’s best drama premiere in six years, since the short-lived K-ville in 2007.”

Now on to our other fabulous show which ended with a solid BANG!  The season finale of Under the Dome garnered a big 2.8 adults 18-49 rating.  It captured 11.8 million viewers, its highest demo score since July 29!  Ratings were up 33 percent from last week’s 2.1.  That is one strong finish!

TVbyTheNumbers.com has it laid out as such:

Broadcast primetime ratings for Monday, September 16, 2013:

Great news, after a short dry spell, looks like Wilmywood will get a little action.  The Remaining (a flick from AFFIRM Films, a division of Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions (SPWA), and Cinematic) wrapped here in Wilmington on March 18th.   Well, they are returning to Wilmywood for re-shoots.  Looks like some of the folks from the church scene will be asked to come back as they are re-shooting that and a camping scene.  They are setting up offices at Screen Gems Studios by the end of the week and re-shoots should begin around next Wednesday.

“THE REMAINING is a horrific yet beautiful story of what life could look like in the hours after the world as we know comes to an end.” ~AffirmFilms

It looks like Bolden! is staying on schedule as offices are getting prepped in Hub D also at Screen Gems.   They are scheduled for pre-production September 23rd.  Construction will be ongoing until January (if they stay on schedule) when they are expected to begin reshoots or more like redos as they have recast the lead role.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 09/16/2013 Thom Tillis, NC Film Emmy Winners, tonight’s BIG night and more.

ThomTillisNorth Carolina State Rep Thom Tillis spoke at a picnic for Republicans over the weekend and weighed in on the film incentives. WECT has him quoted saying:

“I believe the film industry is critical to Wilmington, it’s critical in Charlotte, it’s growing in Ashville.  We’ve got to figure out a way to make sure that North Carolina’s competitive.  I think there’s a way to continue to move forward with tax reform but make absolutely certain that North Carolina is the go-to place for the film industry for productions and all the other good jobs that come with it,”

Episode 3 of NBC‘s powerless show was remembered by these crazy two over the weekend.  I have to say I laughed when I saw these shots on Facebook this weekend.  We lost a location as Sticky Fingers is no more and apparently members of the Militia had to express there feelings about it!

The ‘rebel hideout’ where the Monroe Militia first captured Miles Matheson has been reduced to rubble…
