The Remaining. Illustrated by Kyle Hotz. Kingstone Comics.

Even though it won’t be in theaters until September 5th, it looks like our Wilmywood shot flick, The Remaining, has been adapted into a comic.  Kingstone Comics, a Leesburg Christian comic book publisher, is launching the graphic novel digitally on ComiXology, a website of comics collections, this Friday and will be available in retail stores the following Friday, August 22.

remainingCoverKingstone only hires the best of the best when it comes to their line of comics and graphic novels, and they hired artist Kyle Hotz (Captain America/The Hood) which took nearly one year to complete.

Casey LaScala, who wrote and directed the feature film is also the author of the graphic novel along side Roland Mann.

Kingstone’s publications can be found in retail stores such as Walmart, Barnes & Noble and Family Christian Stores.  Also look for it at ComiXology, iVerse Media and Kingstone Comics.

Great news, after a short dry spell, looks like Wilmywood will get a little action.  The Remaining (a flick from AFFIRM Films, a division of Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions (SPWA), and Cinematic) wrapped here in Wilmington on March 18th.   Well, they are returning to Wilmywood for re-shoots.  Looks like some of the folks from the church scene will be asked to come back as they are re-shooting that and a camping scene.  They are setting up offices at Screen Gems Studios by the end of the week and re-shoots should begin around next Wednesday.

It looks like Bolden! is staying on schedule as offices are getting prepped in Hub D also at Screen Gems.   They are scheduled for pre-production September 23rd.  Construction will be ongoing until January (if they stay on schedule) when they are expected to begin reshoots or more like redos as they have recast the lead role.
