Such wonderful breaking news came out yesterday and we expect more today! Lots to chat about, so let’s get started!
Nicholas Sparks is ready to return to Wilmywood. The latest Sparks novel will be adapted (like all his other books) and shot right here in North Carolina. It is The Longest Ride,which is about [insert sultry voice] the lives of a young couple that intertwine with an old man looking back on the relationship he had with a lost love. A few department heads have already been contacted and some already hired. It looks like we will be sharing the love with Winston-Salem on this one. Offices could open as soon as this month! The movie will be released April 3, 2015. READ MORE NOW
Under the Dome is gearing up for day one of episode two this morning. They are still on the lot, stage 8 I believe, but they will be heading out to their other locations tomorrow and next week in Currie and Burgaw.
It’s day one for Red Zone! Well, kinda. They will be doing some test shoots downtown this evening. Their big official day one is on Monday. Poor cast and crew, it’s gonna be a cold one tonight! We are still waiting on their choice for the leading man, “Holden.” I’m thinking today is the day. It better be, whoever lands the role will kinda need to know his lines. Can you imagine? “Hey, fly in that cue card!” Ha!
RED ZONE STILL NEED MORE STUDENT FOOTBALL FANS to work on Thurs & Friday, March 20 & 21, WHO HAVE NOT YET SUBMITTED. These extras MUST be at least 16 yrs old. Ages 16-25 please. MUST LOOK LIKE YOU ARE IN HIGH SCHOOL. This will be a night shoot (possibly 6pm-6am). GET MORE DETAILS NOW
Some more local love from the stars! Yeah, Shanley missed us! She’s been away for too long! Okay, well since The Conjuring, but that’s entirely too long! We got her hooked on PCJ! Remember, Miss Caswell is working on the Red Zone. She is playing Holden’s daughter, a “cute but slightly awkward teenager with a lively interest in world affairs.”
Secrets & Lies is back in Porter’s Neck today. So get ready for more hotness on set. Ryan Phillippe, Natalie Martinez and of course our favorite fun guy producer Aaron Kaplan.
Auditions are underway for Overflow Entertainment’s The Sin Seer. Good luck to those auditioning today! They are hiring as many local actor and crew as they can! Love it!
The 13th annual North Carolina Black Film Festival will be held in Wilmington this weekend! (March 13-16) The event is sponsored by The Black Art Alliance. The Black Art Alliance is a volunteer run organization that offers support and encouragement of art in all genres from emerging artists to seasoned artists alike and has some incredible films lined up for the weekend.
And if you think the Sleepy Hollow cast is just sitting on their tails or vacationing, nope! They are busy cuz ya know it’s all about promotion, promotion, promotion! Of course, we reported this months ago, but they will be headed to Paley Fest in LA with a special Sleepy Hollow screening. They will also be going across the pond for some Con fun. Check it out!
