THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 07/17/2014 Jack Bender’s UTD Tease, The Remaining release date, Secrets & Lies

“That’s a wrap,” will be called out later today! Final day on E. Bay St. in Southport! They will just be doing some pick up shots on Friday. However, some folks are already going home.

But before everyone heads for the hills, we want answers, right? I caught up with EP/Director Jack Bender and he gives yet one more tease of things to come. I LOVE THIS MAN!

But we won’t be down to two productions for long as ABC’s Secrets & Lies starts up next week. And the stars? Well, many of them are flying in this weekend.

If you remember Charles Dutton had to turn down his role in the pilot episode due to health reasons, so in came the fabulous Greg Alan Williams. Yesterday, I heard that Charles Dutton will not be returning to the show after all, and Greg will join the cast.

The Longest Ride is officially halfway through filming, 23 out of their scheduled 46 days.  They are back on Orange St. today.

_MG_7385.CR2A release date for the Wilmywood shot The Remaining has been revealed. So get ready to gather your friends and hit the theaters September 5th! The Remaining stars Alexa Vega.

Well looky here, Gov. McCrory is returning to Wilmington today, but so far has no plans to come visit the sets or the studios. Nope. The North Carolina Business Committee for Education is having a regional meeting at the Corning Plant Tour. He will be there at 3pm.

Speaking of the Governor, if you remember in his interview with Jon Evans at WECT, he called for more promotion of the state of North Carolina when productions filmed here. Absurd because many productions do it all the time, but he just doesn’t pay attention like we do. But seriously, I think Under the Dome has got it covered, Govna! Did you see this yesterday? And our locations guru Brooke Barnhill is the star of this piece, well, next to Wilmington, Southport and Burgaw! WATCH INCREDIBLE VIDEO NOW

And a final piece of satisfying news, we aren’t the only ones calling Bullshit when it comes to our governor.  Here’s an interesting read:

timguineeTim Guinee (Charlie’s father from Season One of NBC’s Revolution) is back in North Carolina, but this time is is for our other NC hit show, Homeland. While he was in Charlotte, he had to sound off and be his usual grateful self complimenting the writers, the cast and the NC Film crew.  I had a quick exchange with Tim this morning and he said:

“Being a graduate of UNCSA in Winston-Salem, it’s always great to come back to work in North Carolina. So glad there’s so much work here.”  He went on in support of our NC Film Incentives, “I hope the state is smart enough to keep the tax incentives which are above all such a great thing for the NC economy. It would be sad to see all those jobs pack up and move to another state as it so often happens.”

Tim, we love your support and we definitely glad you are back in NC for a few days!  Love to you my friend!

Our Under the Dome creator Stephen King join the ladies on The View today 11am EST He’s there of course to talk about his new book, but I am sure they touch upon the success of our show.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 09/17/2013, The Remaining returns, SH/UTD afterglow, Bolden! and more.

Last night was EPIC for Wilmywood!  With Sleepy Hollow beginning and Under the Dome coming to an end, for the season anyway. I have two questions for ya: 1) What did you think of Sleepy Hollow? 2) What are your thoughts about Under the Dome’s season ender?

Check out the pics from the viewing parties! Christine P White and Jordanna Jones, just an FYI, I totally stole your pics for the blog!

Did you miss Sleepy Hollow last night?  WATCH IT NOW!  Episode 2, “Blood Moon,” airs next Monday, September 23rd at 9pm with an encore of Episode 2, on Friday, September 27th at 9pm.  “A vision from Ichabod’s former wife leads him and Abbie on a hunt for a witch from the 1700s; Andy pursues a questionable mission.”  Sleepy Hollow is shooting at the Brooklyn Arts Center, 516 N. 4th St. and getting an early start.  They will be filming there through Thursday.

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.

The Spy Kid turned gorgeous woman, Alexa Vega, leads the cast alongside Shaun Sipos, Italia Ricci, Johnny Pacar, Bryan Dechart and Liz E. Morgan star in this thriller directed by Casey La Scala who is known for Donnie Darko, A Walk to Remember and What a Girls Wants.

“THE REMAINING is a horrific yet beautiful story of what life could look like in the hours after the world as we know comes to an end.” ~AffirmFilms

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.
