Dome Day is here once again.  Under the Dome is on CBS at 10pm.  We are on episode 12, just one more to go!  Seems as though folks are gathering at The Cellar tonight for a viewing party for UTD, as Hell’s Kitchen I was told is doing football.  But everyone will go back to Hell’s Kitchen next Monday, the 16th and it will be HUGE as it will be the Season Finale of Under the Dome and the Season Premiere of Sleepy Hollow!

Our awesome lady, Jolene Purdy (Dodee from Under the Dome) will be on ‘OMG! Insider‘ tonight! Make sure to catch it!

Sleepy Hollow  is back at the old Brunswick hospital.  Their 2nd unit is shooting on the backlot today.

Our busy man, Gary Wheeler is directing his next flick, Mountaintop.  Location will be, yep you guessed it, in the mountains.  Our lovely lady Kim Stewart is casting.  They begin shooting in October.

Though no official word is out, crew members are still saying Bolden! is coming back in two weeks.  And it’s all building, building, building!  Rumors still say besides Wilmington, they plan on shooting of course in New Orleans, but also in Atlanta as well.  Principal photog isn’t set until January.  When the official news comes out, I will let you know!

AmerBibleChallengeDon’t forget, if game shows are your thing, auditions for the American Bible Challenge hosted by Jeff Foxworthy is coming to Charlotte, Saturday September 14th from 10am-4pm at the Doubletree Suites by Hilton!  Our girl Holland Weathers is casting.  If you are from the Wilmington/Raleigh area, please let Holland know you are coming by emailing her: BibleChallenge2014@gmail.com.  Also, we are scoring from swag to give away courtesy of Holland as well!  Stay tuned for that!!

Did you go to the movies this weekend?  The North Carolina-filmed independent feature from ReelWorks Studios The Ultimate Life is now showing!  The movie was shot in Rockingham, Rowan and Forsyth counties earlier this year.  Directed by Michael Landon, Jr. the flick stars Drew Walters, Bill Cobbs, David Mann, Ali Hillis, and Peter Fonda.

“Despite his best intentions, billionaire Jason Stevens can’t find enough time to keep his beloved Alexia a priority. But when he discovers his late grandfather’s journal, he is transported back to Red Stevens’ incredible world. With everything he loves hanging in the balance, Jason Stevens hopes the past will prepare him well for the future. ”

According to the NC Film office, “Production on The Ultimate Life lasted for about five months in the state, with principal photography lasting for 30 days earlier this year.  The production is estimated to have had a direct in-state spend of about $4 million while providing approximately 450 job opportunities.”

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning (unless something breaks) and every weekday morning at 7:30am & 8:30am LIVE on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Or just post your comments below!  Until then, that’s a wrap!!
