ABC’s Resurrection has Wilmywood Ties

Jason Mott

Although ABC’s Resurrection is filming in Atlanta, GA, we do have a connection that brings it home to Wilmywood!  That connection is Jason Mott, author of the The Returned, the book which the show is based on.  Mott is a UNCW grad who lives quietly in Bolton, NC, which is just down the road from Wilmywood in Columbus County.  He went from answering the phones as a Verizon employee to becoming a New York Times best-selling author with a hit show on the way!  There’s way more to the story and it’s a great article from Pam Kelley over at the Charlotte Observer!  READ STORY NOW!

Our second connection of course is our Domie Homie, Kevin Sizemore.  You can catch him in at least 5 episodes of the show playing the character Gary Humphrey.

The folks from Under the Dome Radio have created a 2nd show, entitled Resurrection Revealed and will be recording the first podcast tomorrow.  They will release it later this week.

Resurrection premieres on ABC, Sunday, March 9th.

Meanwhile,  the love continues to pour for Sarah Jones, the beautiful camera assistant who died during the train accident.  A Slates for Sarah Facebook page was created and if you haven’t seen it yet, get ready to be moved.  God, I love this industry.  So beautiful and creative.  Yesterday, this page stood at 421 likes when I saw it.  Now it’s over 8500 and growing quickly.  No one will brush over Sarah’s death.  She matters.

Sarah Elizabeth Jones family is requesting that donations be made to:

Cayce, SC 29033

Taking it one step further, people are reaching out to the Academy to request Sarah’s memory be a part of the ceremony.
Oscars for Sarah
This was a beautiful tribute.  Please share it with everyone!
A lot of people are also asking how Joyce Gilliard is doing.  She is the fabulous hair stylist that has worked here in Wilmington often (Sleepy Hollow, The Conjuring).  She was up for tweeting this morning.  She let everyone know how sad she is and just how devasting it was to go through it all.  She also cleared up a few things.
“I was hit by the train and not the debris. The worst day in my life. I will need counseling. My coworker died beside me.”
She said that she has metal and pins holding her arm together.  Lots of love and prayers to Joyce.  She is being released from the hospital today.

Today is the first day of Principal photography for “Times Like Dying.” Jim Cody Williams is in from LA who if you look up on IMDb has worked a ton. He was in “Pirates of the Caribbean 2,” “Dodgeball,” and “Sons of Anarchy among many many more films and TV roles. He was also in the original Pace Picante commercial, where he said the famous line, “New York City?” Time to go play cowboys, boys! Gitty Up!

VanessaNcastingLast night, Vanessa (NCasting)had her open call for extras and stand-ins at Post 1200/Giant Culture.  Good Gravy!!  Did you see the line out of the door!  WECT did a little story on it, and they said one lady came from PA!  Poor Vanessa is probably still passed out.

The job begins around March 3rd and could run for three or four weeks.  Please send your resume to: jamesbinnola@gmail.com with EDITOR in the subject line. They are looking to hire immediately.

Delaying HOUSE OF CARDS in Maryland due to their film incentives being up in the air. Sound familiar?

In a letter to Maryland’s Governor Martin O’Malley, which you can read at Deadline, the Senior Vice President of Television Production, Charlie Goldstein, states that while he absolutely loved filming the first two seasons of House of Cards there, because of the incentives being up in the air (vote to come in June), they pushed production until after the vote and they are currently obligated and have already been looking at other states with great incentive packages.  He went onto say, if the incentives don’t continue, they will move the production elsewhere.

If there is any doubt in any legislators minds, read the article, they are not bluffing.  This will happen to us if we lose our film incentives.  Other states will gladly welcome productions with open arms, and we will be left in the dust.  Thousands of jobs gone, million in revenue halted, small businesses damaged and/or shut down.

In the meantime, thank you Dr. Ernie Ward who is running for NC Senate, District 8.  And yes see for yourself.  WHAT DOES ERNIE WARD STAND FOR?tweet_ernie_ward

Scott_KevinIn case you haven’t seen this, Scott Davis did announce  a date for the The Celebration for Cuz.  It will be March 16th, at Hugh Macrae Park from 2 pm to 6 pm. This will be held at  Shelters 5 and 6 with the Volley Ball court between them. This will be a picnic style celebration so please bring food and drink for you and yours. Due to the public park rules, we are having to limit music to a DJ format…. Classic 80s and 90s Rock should be appropriate. There will be a small stage with a microphone set up so that those of you who wish to share something will have an opportunity…..Our family continues to be lifted by your words and gifts…. For those of you who have a schedule conflict, I am sorry. This was the best available. Again I look forward to hugging each and everyone of you….
