Happy Thursday my loves! What a whirlwind yesterday, huh? Well, guess what? Here comes some more! AND NOW IT’S TIME FOR [INSERT BILLOWING ECHO-Y VOICE] RUUUUMMOOOORS FROM THE LOT!
SLEEPY HOLLOW will be bringing more monsters, IchAbbie and perhaps Yolanda to the fans. Rumor has it there will be more episodes this season, as many as 18. I will be speaking with Orlando soon, and hopefully he will get us some more deets.
More news about BOLDEN! Looks like the indie flick will be opening offices again very soon. THEY MEAN IT THIS TIME! Though they do not have an official schedule yet, I heard they will resume production at the end of the summer/early fall. AND I heard there offices are all the way out in Rocky Point. Crazy, right? No word yet who will be replacing Anthony Mackie for the lead role. And who knows, maybe he will come back to the project…we will find out soon enough.
The indie flick, THE HEART from Indian Paintbrush Productions is coming to North Carolina. Now, I know they have been checking us out here in Wilmywood, but I cannot confirm they will be filming here…yet! Regardless, North Carolina will see a great cast! Kristen Wiig, Sam Rockwell and we would welcome back Allison Janney! Wiig will star as a cash-strapped woman who agrees to transport black market organs with a man she just met, to be played by Rockwell. They want to get started ASAP, so we should know the rest of the details and exact location VERY soon! Producing is Steven Rales, Mark Roybal, Kevin J. Walsh and Nora Skinner. Nat Faxon & Jim Rash are writing and directing.
UNTITLED ARMORED CAR PROJECT (aka LOOMIS FARGO) has named their Line Producer. It’s our LP from SAFE HAVEN, D. Scott Lumpkin. He will be heading our way after he finishes up on THE BEST OF ME in Louisiana. And I am not sure who I am more excited about coming back to North Carolina, Owen and Zach or Producer Lorne Michaels! North Carolina is a greenlight, waiting for final confirmation about Wilmington, but my multiple sources insist it will be here.
Last night, one of my rumors from yesterday morning got a confirmation. AGE OF MIRACLES will be indeed shooting in North Carolina, now I am waiting for a Wilmywood confirmation. I do know Wilmington was in the finals for them. Hopefully, I will have that by the end of the day. We shall see!
For about a month now I’ve heard from three different sources the mention of BIG SEXY, but no one knew much about it. Seriously, they would say ‘I am hearing Big Sexy’ and I was like, ‘what about it?’ and they were like, ‘I dunno.’ Well, I found out yesterday that it’s a feature from Red Granite Pictures and it stars Sofia Vergara and Pierce Brosnan. I have no idea if this will shoot here, but keep your ears peeled cuz that name keeps popping up. If you hear anything, lemme know!
Now moving on to what’s shooting. Both UNDER THE DOME and RED ZONE are shooting on the sound stages today. But this will be RED ZONE‘s final fun day as tonight they will cry out, “That’s a wrap!”
REMINDER: The Wilmington Jewish Film Festival takes the stage tonight, and then again on Saturday and Sunday. Four films by Israeli, French and Czech filmmakers will be shown at Thailian Hall on the main stage.
After Thursday’s and Saturday’s showings there will be a dessert reception catered by Angie’s Catering. Sunday’s festivities will include a full reception between shows. Sunday shows begin at 3:30pm. Wilmywood film goers are encouraged to arrive as early on Sunday to enjoy the food and fun. The event will be one full of crowd pleasing and heartfelt films by very talented artists.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by calling the Thalian Hall Box Office at (910) 632-2285. For the line-up of titles check out the Facebook Event Page HERE.
