BREAKING: According to WWAY, Christopher McDonald who is starring in The Squeeze was arrested for drunk driving this morning in downtown Wilmington. Well, that gives a whole new meaning to Shooter McGavin, doesn’t it? (Sorry bad joke that had to be said). Lesson learned though to all cast and crew who come to Wilmington to film. Wilmington takes drinking and driving very serious in this town. Always hire a driver! READ STORY NOW Production begins Friday for The Squeeze at the 6th St. Bridge!
Another TV Pilot is underway in Wilmywood. Kaufmann Media Group brings Do Not Resuscitate to their Wilmington facility Post 1200 across from EUE/Screen Gems. The show has been co-created with a veteran Seinfeld writer and are in search of local talent. They have already been through their first round of auditions, but I don’t think they are over. I will keep you posted on that front. The Emmy nominated principals of KMG have a 20 year history in Hollywood. Their Wilmington location (Post 1200), open just over a year, has touched almost every local production since expanding to North Carolina. KMG continues to direct Los Angeles business toward the NC market in support of the local film community.
Wilmington shot Don’t Know Yet will premiere at the NYC Independent Film Festival tomorrow. The stars James Kyson (Heroes) and Lisa Goldstein (One Tree Hill). UNCW professor,Terry Linehan, wrote and directed the feature and he calls it “a love letter to the state of North Carolina.” You will also see local actors David Andrews, Bill Ladd and Jane McNeill Balter.
