THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 04/07/2014 – Another flick for North Carolina, Under the Dome, Hollywood loses a legend.

Today, it feels like the quiet before the storm. Since Red Zone wrapped on Thursday last week, we have only one production running.  Our next double action will be when Max Steel begins April 29th.  Our Domies will be back on Chestnut St. today.

Sunny1045_sheilaJackAnd speaking of all things Under the Dome, my first article for Entertainment Weekly’s “Community” section is out NOW!  I am officially a content contributor! They are having me write about strictly North Carolina film. I am so proud to be able to highlight Wilmington, North Carolina to the 1000s of readers! Check it out!  Please show some love when I post it by simply reading it! It’s the Jack Bender interview you haven’t read or heard yet. Pretty juicy if you are a fan of the show!

I would say that is the understatement of the year!   The next feature to come is When the Dust Settles which will shoot in Gastonia, NC late summer.  So congrats to Richard and company!

Robert Adams’ dedication to the south and his love for Eveline McCord, his beloved from the north. IMDb marks it as “Produced, written and directed by the descendants of Robert and Eveline, this American Civil War tale is an explosive, richly detailed saga of fierce combat, honor and the will to risk all that’s precious for love or country.”  Mickey played the character
