THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/05/2013 Local Filmmakers sell at AFM, Sleepy Hollow, PCAs and more.

Good morning Wilmywood!  Let’s start with our local boys from The Forgery.  Last time I wrote about Amariah and Obin Olson, they were coming off their AFM high, teasing us with good things to report. Finally, the news is out.  Looks like Continental Media landed the Brothers Olson thriller Unknown Caller. According to Screen Daily, rights have gone to Koch Media for Benelux, CCC for Taiwan and Line Tree Entertainment for South Korea, with several other territories under negotiation.

Continental Media is gearing up for screenings in LA and New York for North American buyers in the New Year.  READ ALL ABOUT UNKNOWN CALLER

With the fog so thick this morning, it’s the perfect atmosphere to gear up for another fabulous day on the set of Creepy Hollow, um, Sleepy Hollow, that is.  The gang gets ready for a lil’ Sis-Boom-BANG!  A surprise attack awaits a couple of key characters so you know they will be some action at the Bellevue Cemetery off Princess Place Drive.  Stunts and prop guns galore!  I am hoping to see some great stills from our awesome local gent Brownie Harris from this scene.  The action will continue from this afternoon into the overnight hours.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/13/2013 Amandla Stenberg, Sleepy Hollow, Tales from the Darkside, Dance-A-Lorus, Brothers Olson

Amandla+StenbergGood morning Wilmywood!  I am so pleased to tell you that later today, I have an interview with the fabulous Amandla Stenberg.  At the moment she is working on Sleepy Hollow, playing Macey, Captain Irving’s daughter.  Her debut episode will be November 25th.  This 15 year old is beautiful inside and out.  Not only is she a gifted actress but she believes in giving back.  She will talk to us about her being a youth advocate for the No Kid Hungry Campaign.

Sleepy Hollow’s final numbers came in and The Midnight Ride adjusted up a tenth – 2.6 rating, 7 share, with a little over 7 million viewers.   And speaking of fabulous shows with fabulous writers and producers, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are teaming with author Joe Hill to “resurrect” one of my favorite shows from the 1980s – Tales from the Darkside!  How EXCITED are you! According to Vulture.com:

“The CW has been looking to develop a new take on the syndicated series for a while now, and with Hill, Kurtzman and Orci on board, the network has ordered a script for the project. The CW is also poised to move quickly on the project: If it likes the script, the network could air the reboot as soon as this summer. Like the original George A. Romero-created series, the new Tales episodes will be 30 minutes long, episodes will be self-contained and every minute will be designed to scare the hell out of viewers. Mitch Galin, Heather Kadin and Jerry Golod will also serve as exec producers on the project, with Hill writing the script.”  READ COMPLETE ARTICLE NOW! 

Oh and by the way, Joe Hill just happens to be the son of Stephen King. See the connection there?  The man who links our 2 hit shows together.  Now if they would shoot this in Wilmywood…

Dance-a-LorusIt’s here!  Day 1 of the 19th Cucalorus Film Festival, and as tradition goes it all kicks off with a dance/film samba, rhombus, cha-cha-cha! Filmmakers and choreographers unite to bring you Dance-A-Lorus, a one-of-a-kind event. Tonight, 7:00 PM at Thalian Hall’s Main Stage.  Then at 8pm, the Bellamy Mansion holds the opening night kickoff party.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/06/2013 – Sequel for Bad Grandpa, The PCAs, Sleepy Hollow, Oprah and more.

Bad_Grandpa_USA sequel is already in the works for North Carolina shot, Bad Grandpa! In fact it was already shot. The film’s lead star Johnny Knoxville has confirmed that an unofficial sequel is already being cut together. Just like the Jackass films before the old geezer flick, there is always a plethora of footage that hits the cutting room floor.  So, what do they do with all that footage? Release an unofficial sequel (dubbed “.5″) on DVD! But this time it will be slightly different as the new film will feature two Oscar-nominees cut out of the theatrical cut: Spike Jonze and Catherine Keener.  As for a full Bad Grandpa 2? Knoxville says he’s up for both. Bad Grandpa 1.5 will be released simultaneously with the theatrical release on DVD and Blu-ray.
