SIX gets a Second Season!

On March 8th, the Season finale on SIX will air, so it’s great news that we now know History/A&E has ordered a 10-episode second season before the season one sign off! That’s 2 more episodes than the previous 8-episode order for season one. Now the question we all want answered: Will production return to Wilmington for Season 2?  Well, they haven’t cleared their storage units, so that’s got to be a good sign, but I cannot tell you it’s a 100% done deal. We should know something by or before mid-March!  If they do return to Wilmywood, we can look forward to production this summer. We could certainly use the work!

ABOUT SIX:

Six follows members of Navy SEAL Team Six, modern American warriors, whose covert mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when they uncover a U.S. citizen working with terrorists. In the first season, former SEAL Team Six troop leader, Richard ‘Rip’ Taggart (Walton Goggins), is captured by Boko Haram and it’s up to his former SEAL Team Six brothers – led by Joe Graves (Barry Sloane), Alex Caulder (Kyle Schmid) and Ricky “Buddha” Ortiz (Juan Pablo Raba) – to put their differences aside to locate and rescue their former troop leader. Edwin Hodge, Dominic Adams, Brianne Davis, Nadine Velazquez, Jaylen Moore, Donny Boaz, and Nondumiso Tembe also star.(deadline)

‘Good Behavior’ back in Wilmywood for Season 2

Finally! The NC Film Office has released the news to the public!  TNT’s Good Behavior got approved for 9 million from the film grant.

Now we can breathe at least a ‘lil sigh of relief! It will be great to see our film trucks lining the streets once again!

I will be posting more next week regarding crew calls and extras casting! So stay tuned!

Shooting will take place in the Wilmington area. Production begins in April. Randy Sutter and Dale Williams return and LP and UPM.

“Good Behavior” brought its first season to a close with Javier (Juan Diego Botto) realizing he belongs with Letty (Michelle Dockery) despite her betrayal and the two of them setting off for a whirlwind adventure … of running from the feds with a 10-year-old passenger in the form of Letty’s son Jacob (Nyles Julian Steele).

Showrunner Chad Hodge agrees with Screener that that may not have been the most responsible choice Letty and Javier have ever made, but it’s all part of the Season 2 plan. (ScreenTV.com)

 

NC-Filmed ‘The Disappointments Room’ in theaters September 9th

The supernatural thriller, The Disappointments Room, which filmed in the Greensboro area in the fall of 2014 is hitting theaters next week.

The film stars Kate Beckinsale.

Wilmington Casting Director heads to Georgia for next production.

With no jobs in sight in North Carolina for any film crew members, it was been a mass exodus to California and Georgia.  Most are leaving permanently, but a few are commuting for now.

Marty Siu of Marty Siu Casting is one of those commuters. She has been named extras casting director for season two of WGN’s Underground. Season one was shot in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, however since the state totally reworked their film incentives, the production left the state for Savannah, Georgia.

Production for the 10 episode season begins August 29th and will film through December 1st.

North Carolina background actors who are looking for work and can work as a local in Savannah, please visit Marty Siu Casting‘s Facebook page tomorrow for details.

Just four short years ago, North Carolina was one of the most sought after states to film on the East Coast. During that time,  the North Carolina General Assembly along with Governor Pat McCrory made many changes to state law and state budgets.  Currently, there are no productions lined up for North Carolina.

‘Max Steel’ Trailer is Here! New Release Date!

(Photo Credit: David Pascua)
It’s been almost 18 months since Dolphin and Open Road Films swam on into Wilmywood to begin production on Max Steel and we’ve been like, “Where is this movie?” Yes, we’ve been hearing nothing but crickets!  The movie stars Ben Winchell as Max McGrath along with Ana Villafañe, Andy Garcia and Maria Bello. But finally we have our selves a trailer!!!  It’s the Spanish trailer, but in English. If you remember, Mattel’s Max Steel franchise has a HUGE following especially in South America. So, I guess that makes sense. Anyone else SUPER pumped?! The new release date is Friday, October 21, 2016.

MAX STEEL – MATTEL/DOLPHIN/OPEN ROAD 
STATUS: Production began April 29, 2015
PRODUCERS: Bill O’Dowd,  Julia Pistor
WRITER: Christopher Yost
DIRECTOR: Stewart Hendler
LP: David Grace
CAST: Ben Winchell,  Ana Villafañe, Andy Garcia, Maria Bello

16 year old Max McGrath is discovering that he’s got a strange electric energy that emanates from him when he’s upset or excited, and it’s starting to grow beyond his control. With his scientist father dead and his mom Molly unwilling to talk about what really happened in the accident that killed him, Max is resigned to trying to fit in to yet another new school–where he finds himself attracted to the quirky, independent-minded Sydney and develops a friendship with an old colleague of his dad’s, Miles Edwards. But the most startling thing that happens to Max is the arrival of a small, crab-like alien named Steel, whose memory may be faulty but who knows one thing for certain: he’s there to protect Max, and he’s been sent by Max’s father.
