THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 10/23/2013 Homeland’s pick up, Pieces of Talent, The Squeeze

homelandHomeland has picked up a 4th season. Looks like we will have 12 new one hour episodes, regardless of fears that the current season has lost the plot line.  But that wasn’t enough to stop Showtime from placing its order because they were more focused on the big numbers Homeland is bringing in for the premium channel – an impressive 6.5 million viewers a week – 26% jump from last year.

Dunno what’s going to happen weather wise today with The Squeeze.  We have 30mph wind gusts that the sound guys will not love, plus chances of rain.  If they do go through with it, they will be at the Wilmington Municipal Golf Course.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 10/22/2013 Another movie coming to Wilmywood?

Rumorslogo

RUMORS FROM THE LOT!

Happy Tuesday!  Let’s kick it off with “Rumors from the Lot.”  Another movie could be coming to Wilmywood.  It’s an independent flick with a big heart. It’s called Fragile, a true story about high school football team embracing a mentally challenged boy, and could be in production before the holidays.   It’s a small project (under $5 million) and from what I understand is funded by folks in NC.  I think it will be a project that everyone will want to be a part of. So to sum it up, the movie is a fact, whether it comes here is still bookmarked as rumor, at least for now.  I will keep you posted.

mtvMTV is casting a new show!  Do you live in a real-life Modern Family?

Are your parents and siblings the anti-1950s nuclear family? Do you have same-sex parents? An internationally-adopted cousin? A hot, young new step-mom or dad?

The Sleepy folks head to The Graystone Inn, on S. 3rd St.  this evening.  There will be one of the horses at this location, but I cannot tell you if it will be Zach.  That’s Headless’s horse.  Also, it looks like we will see James Frain on set today. Another reported location for the day is the Cape Fear Club on Chestnut.

Well Wishes, a little film out of Raleigh, will be taking up space on the 100 block of Water St. until Noon today.  The characters will be spreading the wealth by filling parking meters.
