Snowy Hollow – Sleepy Hollow Locations in a Winter Wonderland.

1514995_524155091025820_1845409132_nHey There! It’s Bob. The one who should be the main host of the Wilmywood Week in Review. No worries I have a plan. Anyway, I thought it would be nice to show you what Sleepy Hollow looks like in a winter wonderland. I stopped by at a few locations just as Winter Storm Leon hit Wilmington, NC! What can I say, I live for danger! Just click on the picture for a description and a much bigger view. I have some real nice close ups, if I do say so myself. Enjoy!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 01/30/2014 Director Named for Secrets & Lies, Max Steel, NC Oscar Nom Revoked and More.

secretsLiesABC’s Secrets and Lies has named their director.  It looks like Charles McDougall will be directing the pilot episode.  If you don’t know the name, you’ve definitely has seen his work at some point.  His credits span every network from primetime to premium including The Office, House of Cards, Sex and The City, as well as the pilot episode of the new show Resurrection, which is also from ABC, shooting in Atlanta. And here’s a little fun connection.  Our love Kevin Sizemore from Season One of Under the Dome will be playing Gary Humphrey in at least five episodes.  The Aussie turned US television series begins production in Wilmywood, February 21st.

Max-SteelNow moving on to Mattel, we knew that Max Steel has been pushed back, but now we have a bit of a clearer picture.  It’s looks like production will begins in March.  No casting details have been released as of yet.  I will keep you posted on those details.
oscarrevokedPeople Magazine came out with an article that put the number of NC Film Oscar Noms back to two again.  We have of course Iron Man 3 (VSX) as well as Bad Grandpa(Hair/Makeup) up for the golden statue.  The third Oscar nod went to Bruce Broughton, who was nominated for writing the music for Alone Yet Not Alone that filmed in Transylvania County here in North Carolina.  Bruce had his Best Original Song nomination taken away by the Academy yesterday.  Why? People went on to say:
“Broughton, who is a former member of the Academy’s Board of Governors and a current member of the Music Branch executive committee, emailed members of the branch to make them aware of his submission.”  
Apparently that is a HUGE No-No. Do you think he deserved to lose the Oscar Nom?  Post your thoughts below!  READ ARTICLE NOW

sh_johnNobleTwo casts members of Sleepy Hollow got an upgrade to series regulars! John Noble  and Lyndie Greenwood were promoted for the sophomore season. The Hollywood Reporter says, “Noble’s Sleepy Hollow promotion puts him back in business with Fox as a series regular, where he had previously starred in Fringe.  Meanwhile, Greenwood, who portrays Abbie Mills’ sister Jenny, appeared in the majority of the 13-episode run.”

So yeah, Lyndie was already playing the part, so I am glad both get the notoriety and pay raise! READ ARTICLE NOW

Good morning Wilmywood!  Crazy weather for the next two days, so please prepare!  The SNOWpocalypse is COMING!  Done?  Good, let’s get going!

Our North Carolina shot Bad Grandpa is out on DVD and Blu Ray today! Not only do we get to enjoy the movie all over again, but of course the bonus features will be super fun with this flick.

Johnny Knoxville is REALLY looking forward to you grabbing a copy. “We had so much hilarious footage that we had to cut for various reasons, so I’m psyched that people are going to get to see everything, especially when it’s unrated and on Blu-ray. Woohoo!! Plus I think fans will get a kick out of seeing how we pulled off some of the pranks in the behind-the-scenes footage. As Irving would say, ‘The show’s not over until I hogwrench the fat lady’s spatooly.'”

Blu-Ray Combo Pack will come with an Unrated Cut with more footage, along with the regular theatrical version. The set also features over an hour of behind-the-scenes content, deleted scenes and alternate reactions from real people.  If you get the single-disc DVD there are NO special features.

Andy Griffith & Kevin “Cuz” Davis

Filmmakers and Musicians alike are mourning the loss of a great man.  Kevin Davis, “Cuz” as he was so lovingly called, passed away this weekend.

Kevin crossed over into both the music and film world.  He’s worked on more movies than IMDb listed.  Many knew him as an energetic and ever so loving Grip, but so many knew him as an iconic musician.  From his marching band days at New Hanover High, to the craziest of bands he put together throughout the decades. But no matter which side of the entertainment world, people all agreed he was the most loving and kindest spirits that walked this Earth.

His brother, Scott Davis, also an amazing part of the Wilmington Film Family, will be organizing a fundraising effort.  Please look for that effort, and of course all the love and stories about Cuz in this Facebook group. You are also encouraged to share your own stories.

“Kevin “CUZ” Davis ~A Tribute Page to our loved Friend& Local Rock Legend ♥”

Our loss is Heaven’s gain, and as most people have already said, you know he’s already started a party up there.
