Rumors from the Lot: Sleepy Hollow

Now it’s time for Rumors from the Lot! Many folks have been hanging on for some chance in hell that Sleepy Hollow will find a way to stay in Wilmington and not make the move to Atlanta. If you are one of the many, you are not gonna like what I have to tell you.

Rumor has it, starting next week, the 18-wheelers will be rolling on in. Starting with Stage 10 at EUE/Screen Gems, they are breaking down the sets as they prepare for season 3 in Atlanta.

The only bit of good news, bittersweet really, is that from what I heard they are hiring some of the original crew to do the tear down and set up in Atlanta. I also heard that they might be asking some of the crew members to move to Atlanta and continue working on the show. Especially those in set dec.

So, while folks will be working, it will be short lived for some, and a move away from their families for others should they choose to do so.

Can I confirm this? Not yet. Are my sources strong. Yes. Guess we will know for sure next week.

It’s a sad day for Wilmywood.

Sleepy Hollow’s move to Atlanta CONFIRMED

Well, we’ve been talking about it for at least two months now.  We knew in October that Sleepy Hollow was not going to stay for a third season.  Vancouver was mentioned, but for the last couple months, Atlanta was the front runner. Even though no official word has been said in regards to a third season, Sleepy Hollow folks headed to Atlanta and scouted the area on Friday.

Now, the Star News is reporting that what we already knew to be true is confirmed.

Fox Television Group chairman and CEO Dana Walden said if it’s renewed for a third season, “Sleepy Hollow” will move production from Wilmington following the demise of the North Carolina film tax credit program.

Thanks NCGA.  Thanks Governor McCrory.

Christmas in Conway is filming at their regular location on Forest Hills Dr in Wilmington.

Eastbound and Down back on the stage today, their final day before they head to Charlotte.   Another big star is in town, but I’m not sayin’ who, because the folks at Enemy Mig don’t like stuff leaking out.  Can’t say I blame them if they want people to be pleasantly surprised with all the cameos episode to episode.  But hey, if TMZ leaks it, it’s fair game 🙂

Rumors on the lot say that Bolden! will shoot some of their scenes in Atlanta, thoughI don’t see any solid reasons why that might be true.  Not believing this one so much.  But I will find out for ya.

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning 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!!
