THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 04/18/2014 Mike Vogel Goes Hallmark, Max Steel, The Longest Ride, Shannon Rippy and more.

Hippety-Hoppety damn good mornin’ to ya! Under the Dome is off today as it is Good Friday, and a good Friday it is indeed.  However that doesn’t stop us from seeing stars, one in particular.

InMyDreamsFilmPosterOur homie Domie Mike Vogel comes out of the Dome for the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, In My Dreams this Sunday night on ABC at 9pm EST. (I know the video claims it’s on tonight, but it is on this Sunday) Nick (Mike Vogel) and Natalie (Katharine McPhee) are the perfect couple, only they have never actually met. After tossing coins in Haywood Fountain, the two start dreaming about each other. According to fountain mythology, they have exactly seven days to turn their dreams into a reality. Now doesn’t that sound as sweet as all get out! Don’t miss it!

MAXSTEEL_CASTMax Steel‘s Ben Winchell who plays the lead Max McGrath makes his way into town this weekend and his counterpart Ana Villafane will make it into town early next week!  Yay! Producer Julia Pistor as well as writer Christopher Yost was here as well, they are headed out, but will be coming back shortly as things will start getting super fun soon enough!

Looks like Nicholas Sparks’ The Longest Ride has pushed their start date to mid June. I will keep you posted on any other details that come out.


It has been 13 days since anyone has seen our film friend 53-year-old Shannon Rippy Vannewkirk.  Investigators with the Wilmington Police Department now believe there may be foul play surrounding Shannon’s disappearance. Apparently new information has come out that are turning the police’s minds towards the negative. They cannot say what that information is, but they are confident that foul play is at hand. At the vigil held last night on the steps of the federal building, the negative news that foul play is in the mix, it hit home for many. Thankfully in addition to the police on the case is the Cue Center for Missing Persons. There is no search team in the country better than the Cue Center. “Someone out there knows something and that’s why we have to spread the word. Someone may have seen something, someone may have heard something,” said Seidman to WECT.

WWAY,  however, has the latest on the vigil from last night. READ NOW


Now if you live in a cave, I still think you saw this!  I was quite pumped about my article that was published yesterday on  All about Wilmington baby!  So thanks for the shares and comments.  Feel free to continue that behavior!  Ha! READ IT NOW!


Earlier this week, we let you know that the Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider was planning to continue production. Once the news broke on the internet, a Facebook page called, “I REFUSE to work on Midnight Rider” was created.


Sarah Jones was killed on February 20, 2014 in Wayne County, GA while filming. Seven crew members were injured when a train collided with the set which called for the crew to be on a bridge. One member who was injured, Joyce Gilliard, is part of our Wilmywood Film Community. Help trend:  #BoycottMidnightRider on Twitter.
