by Sheila Brothers and April Vickery

Happy Monday my loves!  Hope everyone had a great weekend, regardless of the surprisingly crappy weather we had on Sunday.  Yuck!

robert-downey-jr-KCA2014The bright and colorful and of course slimy Kids Choice Awards were held over the weekend, and we had a Wilmywood contender. Though the Stark man couldn’t beat a girl with a bow for Favorite Movie or funny man Adam Sandler for Favorite Movie Actor, our Iron Man, Robert Downey, Jr. did nab the win for Best Male Buttkicker.  

RDJ wasn’t the only Wilmywood star to head to the KCAs.  RED ZONE star Stefanie Scott also made a stunning appearance.

The KCA’s weren’t the only ones handing out awards. The LMGA Awards were held over the weekend as well.  Congratulations to Ilt Jones for winning the: Outstanding Achievement by a Location Professional – Feature Film for IRON MAN 3. IM3 had a more than a few shots done here in scenic Wilmywood, most memorably, the people of Wilmywood recall the stunt that required a crane and team of stunt professionals dangling out over the Cape Fear River to make the “escape from the airplane scene” happen.  Many of our local talent and beloved EUE/Screen Gems crew worked on this feature and have nothing but the best to say about all the creative crew involved.

Location Managers and Scouts are extremely important members of the creative crew in film, television, commercials, music videos and print advertising. Theses team members find the settings that best represent the Producer, Director and Production Designer.

The locations managers are also responsible for the everyday management of the locations and often work long hours. These folks are the heart and soul of all the “little things” that can really add up very easily to A LOT of things. Permits, legalities, working with transportation and local law enforcement. These guys do it all!

SarahSlate2With all that being said, Sarah Jones was remembered during the ceremony.

Together they unravel the secret behind his brother’s death and pull a family together again.

STATUS: Pre-Production.  Production begins May 5th and will wrap around June 20th.  Release date is set for 2015.

PRODUCER: Nicholas Sparks, Marty Bowen, Wyck Godfrey

ABOUT THE LONGEST RIDE:

Ira Levinson is in trouble. Ninety-one years old and stranded and injured after a car crash, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, who passed away nine years ago. Urging him to hang on, she forces him to remain alert by recounting the stories of their lifetime together – how they met, the precious paintings they collected together, the dark days of WWII and its effect on them and their families. Ira knows that Ruth can’t possibly be in the car with him, but he clings to her words and his memories, reliving the sorrows and everyday joys that defined their marriage.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 03/26/2014 EW, Sleepy Hollow, Under the Dome, Red Zone

Good Morning Wilmywood! Hope your hump day is as happy as a hippo in heat! Wait…
EW_Community
First off, I have some personal news to share with you. Beginning the week of April 6th, I will be adding another facet to The Wilmywood Daily.  ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY has gathered up a handful of bloggers and has made a “Community” out of us.  I have to say, they are quite talented and some are downright hilarious.  So, kudos to you EW for the selections.  But here’s the cool kicker.  While the other bloggers are doing awesome show recaps (seriously give them a read), I get to do what I LOVE most. Talk about and promote NC Film. I am very excited about being able to shine an even brighter light on the productions that are shooting here. So yay!  Now let’s do just that!

Sleepy-Hollow-TitleThe small town of SLEEPY HOLLOW is getting bigger!  They have already been using 3 sound stages and the entire back lot.  And now they are adding a 4th sound stage to the massive production.  In addition to that space, it looks like we’ll be seeing more of Wilmington aka Sleepy Hollow as they have been scouting new locations for season 2.  Hunter from the Star News says production begins May 6th.

tscc3

RED ZONE is getting a nice mid-morning start which is a very good thing cuz it’s just way too cold to be working outside this morning! They will be shooting on Colonial Drive today.

UNDER THE DOME is at Screen Gems today, but they will venture back out tomorrow.  Dwight Yoakam joins our Domies on set today!

RumorslogoAnd now it’s time for [INSERT ECHO] Rumooooors from the Lot…

1) The buzz is back for BOLDEN! People are talkin’ saying the most expensive independent film ever made is not out of the picture.  Things might move forward after all.  The question is when? Still workin’ on this one.  I will keep you posted!

2) We might be getting back to back TV movies.  After THE SIN SEER wraps Overflow Entertainment might shooting a second flick here in Wilmywood.

3) There is more talk about SECRETS & LIES moving to Charlotte. Although I have heard from others that due to prominent locations, they would stay here, I have also heard that Charlotte would be better suited for the TV production.  We will find out soon enough which rumor is correct.
