UnderTheDome_Alex_Koch03102014Yesterday, Under the Dome was shooting downtown and a 2nd unit went to Southport.  I have to say Alexander Koch looked fabulous in uniform yesterday.  A little more about the downtown Stage8location.  My sources tell me that the location they are using is a vacant store front waiting to be rented.  So again, NC Film is putting money into the local economy.  Today they are back at EUE/Screen Gems.  Stage 8 is where the magic will happen with Mike Vogel, Colin Ford and Mackenzie Lintz just to name a few,  rocking their acting skills today. Looks like they will be on the lot for the next couple of days.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 03/06/2014 Under the Dome, Secrets & Lies, Sleepy Hollow, The Five

Oh Happy Friday Eve!  Crappy weather, however, thinking about Daylight Savings Time this weekend makes it a little better!  That “dark at 5 o’clock” crap has got to go! Sorry, just had to get that off my chest.  Okay, let’s do this!

Under the Dome remains undercover at the sound stages as a slew of international press fills the stages, including the adorable Michael Yo from The Insider.  He’s having way too much fun here in Wilmywood!

Our ABC show, Secrets & Lies, is up to their usual Porter’s Neck shoot.  Not too much to report.  Extras Casting Director for SNL, Ashli Bogart, will head back to South Carolina in a few weeks after she completes her time on our show here in Wilmywood.  If you remember, we blogged about the show Identity that is shooting in South Carolina.  This pilot for the CW is coming from our Sleepy Hollow producers, Kurtzman and Orci.  So, congrats on the gig Ashli, but hurry back!

Sleepy-Hollow-TitleAndrea Müller, Contributor for The Wilmywood Daily in Mannheim, Germany reported this morning that Sleepy Hollow got the axe in Germany.  She cited the network being the cause, not the audience.  READ STORY NOW

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 03/04/2014 Max Steel Opens Offices, Under the Dome’s 1st Day, Secrets & Lies, and more.

It was a great first day Under the Dome.  The set in Burgaw was filled with CBS peeps and of course, as expected, they had a visit from Neal Baer and Stephen King himself. King, of course, was his typical humorous self yesterday.  If you haven’t seen this yet, it’s short, sweet and hilarious!

But perhaps the most noted part of the day was how they kicked off their first morning of season two.  It was with a moment of silence for Sarah Elizabeth Jones.

UTDSarah

Their slates still branded with her name as well as a crane in large red taped letters.  They made sure crew members took on the responsibility of looking out for each other as well as themselves.  The rain finally had its way in the early afternoon, so they made a company move to the stage, at beautiful Screen Gems Studios, where they will be this morning.

Day two resumed for ABC’s Secret & Lies, but the rain didn’t stop them from filming Ryan Phillippe in what will be Ben’s  morning jog that changed his life forever.  The very social producer Aaron Kaplan tweeted:

Shanley CaswellYesterday, we finally got a casting announcement.  Congrats to our latest stars. Shanley Caswell and Aimee Garcia will join the cast of what was once called the Red Zone is now back to its original vague title, The Untitled Nikki Tuscano Project.  Shanley Caswell is making her way back to Wilmywood, as she was just recently here for The ConjuringShe will play Holden’s daughter, a “cute but slightly awkward teenager with a lively interest in world affairs.”

Max Steel has officially opened offices here in Wilmington, but it is not at Screen Gems Studios. I’m not sure if they want their office info released yet, so holding off for the moment.  But I can give a nice warm welcome to the office staff!

Secretary-Sharon-DeckerThanks to WWAY for shooting me this over yesterday.  It seems as though Secretary of Commerce Sharon Decker wants to ease our minds when it comes to the NC Film Incentives.  She believes the incentives won’t be terminated but cannot assure us if they will remain the same. Well, no one really can.  Only the May vote can tell us that.  And if they keep them but decide to enact any changes, that could lead to a temporary lapse.  So, everything is simply up in the air at the moment.  However, as reassuring as Decker sounds, we need to continue to contact our legislators about keeping the incentives intact, because even a short lapse could be devastating for North Carolina.  I do appreciate her addressing the issue though because it affects 1000s of us here in NC.  READ MORE NOW

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 02/28/2014 Secrets & Lies Rolling, Under The Dome, Sarah Jones Online Memorial, and more.

secretsLiesYay!  The first production day of the season!  ABC’s Secrets & Lies kicks it off in Porter’s Neck.  Wanna know some more secrets?  How about how Producer Aaron Kaplan feels about Wilmington and why he chose to bring it here.  Hunter Ingram of the Star News snagged this fabulous quote:

aaronkaplan“When we were trying to decide where to shoot this, one of the most important things for us was that we had to pick an American city that felt very safe, very bucolic and a place that would be rattled by something like the murder of a child,” Kaplan said.  

Aaron says more and he wasn’t the only one that agreed.  Find out who cited our excellent film incentives and crew base to seal the deal. READ MORE NOW

charlesduttonThis came out yesterday afternoon!  Australian actress Indiana Evans, has signed on the dotted line as well as three other actors for Secrets & Lies.  Deadline reports that Evans will play Natalie, Ben and Christy’s teenage daughter.  But I am most excited about Charles Dutton!  He will play one of the neighbors, Kevin Williams.  Also added to the list are Steven Brand (Magic City) as Dr. Joseph Turner, another neighbor, and Kate Ashfield (Shaun of the Dead).  READ MORE NOW.

UTD_SlateForSarahAs we gear up for Under the Dome to begin production on Monday in Burgaw, they stopped what they were doing to add to the 100s of slates from around the world paying their respects to Sarah Jones.  Thank you John and the gang!  You rock! Visit SLATES FOR SARAH.  ABC’s Secrets & Lies also have a slate for Sarah as Well.

roadblockOn a traffic note, there will be some road closures as Under the Dome moves forward with Season Two.   Hwy 53 in Burgaw will be closed to traffic between the intersection of HWY 53 and HWY 421 and Malpass Corner Rd.  Times are not set as of yet.

I got an email this morning about an online memorial for Sarah.  “Join our online memorial tomorrow at 11am PST/2pm EST to help us honor Sarah’s life and show the Academy that this courageous young woman deserves a place in the ceremonies.”
