First things first let’s give HUGE kudos to our local boy, Anthony Reynolds. He is hitting the big screen this weekend in Fantastic Four. He was fortunate to have been on set for 12 weeks in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, playing opposite Tim Blake Nelson and the Four. He plays a Civilian Military Official. So give him a huge round of applause when you see him on the screen this weekend!

NC flick ‘Adrenaline’ gets picked up by Word Films

Many of you saw this flick last month as they SOLD OUT two showings here in Wilmywood.  And if you were one of the lucky ones to get  yourself a ticket, you already know this tidbit.  Regardless, you should be VERY proud of our Wilmington, NC filmmakers. Our local boys and one “good old boy,” John Schneider, got themselves a distribution deal with Word Films for the NC-shot, family feature,  Adrenaline.  It stars John Schneider along with local actors Michael Rosander, Myke Homes, and Anthony Reynolds to name a few.  Oh and let’s not forget the fabulous Gregory Alan Williams. It was written, produced and directed by Joseph Quinn Simpkins. Additional writers include Alex Chatfield and Michael Rosander. The film was produced by Del Baron among others.  It was truly a very collaborative effort.  SEE FULL CAST AND CREW CREDITS

After straightening the curves all these years, it was a pleasure to finally race in a straight line,” said Schneider, the beloved Dukes of Hazard star. “I am very excited about this film.

ICYMI, here’s the trailer. Enjoy!

Adrenaline is the story of a drag racer whose life is changed forever by a near-fatal car crash that leaves him partially paralyzed, forcing him to face new circumstances as he ultimately learns to race again.

Anthony Reynolds

Our local actor, Anthony Reynolds, made the trek to Atlanta, to work on Stephen King’s latest feature, Cell. Yesterday, Anthony finished his first scene opposite John Cusack.   Anthony plays a supporting character, Ray, who is haunted and jittery, a survivor who has devoted himself to killing as many Phoners as he can. He and his friend join a small band of survivors led by Clay (John Cusack) .

“He’s simply a great collaborator who brought an incredible energy to the set,” Anthony said happily.  “He and ‘Kip’ (director Tod Williams) gave me free reign to explore the character that I created and run with the ball. It was an incredible ride today.”

Anthony will be shooting the rest of the week with not only Cusack but Samuel L. Jackson as well.  CONGRATS!!!


AdrenalineAdrenaline the movie starring John Schneider, will be filming a half day on March 8th in Willard just past Burgaw and they are looking for background extras. It will be from around 8am – 1pm. They are looking for a lot of African Americans due to the scene being in a mostly black church. This will be a non-paid day however, we will be serving lunch and everyone will get a copy of the DVD.

Producer Del Baron, said, “Plus, you can tell family & friends you were in this great faith based film. Please email me at to sign up! Have a blessed day and we hope to see you on set!”
