THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/04/2013 Nicholas Sparks, Bolden! shoots today, Zach Galifianakis, Sleepy Hollow and more!

201110-the-best-of-meI have been blogging about this movie for months and finally there are more details coming out about Nicholas Sparks’ The Best of Me, the latest flick that is coming to Wilmywood!  Michelle Monaghan will star taking on the role of “Amanda Collier” and once was what a rumor is now a fact,  Michael Hoffman will direct the film.  The flick will follow a pair of former high school sweethearts who reunite after many years when they both return to their small North Carolina hometown. The novel was released Michelle_Monaghanback in March.  Nicholas Sparks is producing along with Ryan Kavanaugh and the much loved Denise Di NoviTheresa Park is co-producing. J. Mills Goodloe and Will Fetters penned the script.  They are planning a release date of October 17, 2014. While they are not giving a date on when offices will open, I am thinking it will have to be between now and late January.  Pure speculation however, but it will take about 5 weeks of prep and about 30 days of production.  They will need the crew base.  The Squeeze wraps this week, Sleepy Hollow in mid-December, so that will open some 200 crew members ready to move to the next project.  But with Under the Dome returning –  office staff in January and crew in February, they better get going on this project.

Bolden! begins their test shoots today at Screen Gems.  Yes, the movie that was shot here nearly 6 years ago.  They are back in action!  Still no word on who will replace Anthony Mackie as the lead role of Bolden however.  They are hoping to begin full production in March or April of 2014.

RumorslogoMore Rumors are swirling about Wilkesboro, NC native Zach Galifianakis replacing Jim Carrey in Jared Hess’s comedy Loomis Fargo with Owen Wilson as his sidekick.  The last time that Galifianakis and Wilson worked together was on another NC shot movie, You Are Here, in Winston-Salem and the surrounding areas.

The action/comedy is based on true events that happened in Charlotte, and the two will play inexperienced criminals who rob a bank – leaving a trail of evidence behind.  With that being said, we don’t know if they will be shooting in Wilmington as originally planned, or will share the love throughout the state.  They are looking at a start up date tentatively in March 2014.

And speaking of start-up dates.  New rumors from the Lot are swirling about Sleepy Hollow Season Two production returning as soon as February. And possibly before Under the Dome (which comes out on DVD/Blu Ray tomorrow) begins.  This is strictly rumor, but it was something that I have heard from multiple sources.

FINALLY!  Sleepy Hollow returns tonight!  After the longest hiatus we can now sit on the edge of our seats again ready for Ichabod and Abbie and good old Headless to cross our screen!  Here’s a preview for tonight’s episode!

Or if you just can’t wait and missed yesterday’s blog, watch the first 8 minutes, an extended scene from tonight’s episode.  WATCH NOW!

DavidFontenoMore casting news has come in.  David Fonteno has joined the Sleepy crew.  The actor, who played Judge Robert Parks in The Good Wife, is becoming more devout and will return to the small screen as a Catholic priest named Reverend Boland. It seems as though this reverent man has been somewhat of a role model to Captain Frank Irving (Orlando Jones) for a long time. The Reverend will make his debut on episode 9 (airing November 25th) as well as our beloved Rue, Amandla  Stenberg.

Some more great news for the ratings for the premiere episode.  Sleepy Hollow soared 108% to 26.4M viewers across Live, DVR, VOD & streaming on Hulu & Fox.com. (SOURCE)

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 07/25/2013 Bolden!, Sleepy Hollow and More

More is coming out about Bolden!  Yesterday, I reported that Anthony Mackie is out and Buddy Bolden will be recast.  This of course will call for re-shoots.  Now my sources are telling me it will be way beyond re-shoots.  It’s looking like the entire film will be re-shot. That means going back to Louisiana to shoot some parts of the film as well.  Millions more will be spent to complete this film, but apparently it hasn’t stopped them from spending even when they are in a holding pattern.   While they have been waiting, their stuff has been in storage.  A source tells me it is costing them about $10,000 a month to store everything.   They also haven’t decided if the next go around will be shot on film or digital.

Wilmington, NC is the top 3 cities who have the chance for an early screening of Sleepy Hollow, but we need about 100 more votes today to secure our spot!  You can vote once a day, so please do it, it takes about 60 seconds!! DEMAND an early screening of the locally filmed Sleepy Hollow in Wilmington NOW

Another round of casting calls for the New Bern area for the modern day parts of Sleepy Hollow for Monday, July 29th.  Find out all the details now!

The Eastbound and Down folks return to Tabor Lane today.  The folks who reside Under The Dome head to Southport.  They will head to the 100 block of East Bay Street midday, then they will be at Trinity United Methodist Church on East Nash Street for the rest of the day.

For all Wilmywood, Film NC and Dome Fan Gear.  We got it in the Wilmywood Shop!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 07/24/2013 – Bolden! Sharknado 2 and more!

The final numbers are in for Blue on Blue, which was episode 5 of Under the Dome.  There were no adjustments made after the overnight number came in.  Viewership was up by 4% from last week with 11.6 million people glued to their seats.  The gang is back on the stage today at Screen Gems.

We could get an early screening of Fox’s Sleepy Hollow, but it all depends on you voting!  Yesterday we were in 7th place, now we are in the top 3.  We are competing with large markets with millions of people so every vote counts!  Please DEMAND it now!

Danny McBride and the gang with Eastbound and Down will have two units running today, one at Tabor Lane, the other at the Independence Mall.  And congrats by the way Danny.  We just found out this morning that Danny will join Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, and Reese Witherspoon in Cameron Crowe’s next flick.  Which one?  Well, no one’s quite sure right now, as Joey Magidson reported, “it’s supposedly a reworking of a previous romantic comedy script he abandoned a few years back called Deep Tiki. It remains to be seen if it’s exactly that project or something new.”

Now onto fun!  Love the rumors!  They are swirling like crazy!

Yesterday I reported The Best of Me, Nicholas Sparks’ latest adaptation for film had their folks talking to department heads trying to get their crew in place.  It was also said that they really wanna get this film in the can by the end of the year.  So, it looks like this will be a go!

Also said to be a go is Bolden!  Yep third time a charm, they’re baaack!  Or they will be.  The word is Bolden! will start building sets in September begin filming again in January.   Other rumors are flying about them rebuilding at a different location as the sound stages might not be available for them as space is getting hard to find as Wilmywood is getting mighty popular.  My sources are also saying that there are rumors about Anthony Mackie‘s role getting recast.  The lead, the name within the title – Buddy Bolden.  No word on why, but I will get that info to you when I find out.  Wow, that’s a lot of re-shoots!  They’ve spent an ungodly amount of money making this independent flick, so they need to finish to get some kind of return on their investment here!

And finally, the Syfy flick Sharknado fueled  an unprecedented social media buzz, the movie was the #1 most tweeted program on cable.  The folks who brought you this goodness were actually here not long ago filming American Warships starring Mario Van Peeples and Carl Weathers.  Well, folks from The Asylum kinda liked it here.  So much that a buzz was in the air all day yesterday about them scouting here for Sharknado 2!  How fun would that be!!

More details to come, I will update you as soon as I find out more!
