THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/19/2013 We’re the Millers DVD, John Leonetti, Basecamp Luxe and more!

Good Tuesday Morning!  How about a fist bump for last night’s  Sleepy Hollow!  I will have the ratings report later today after 11am for the Necromancer.  The folks are shooting downtown at St. James Church on S. 3rd St.  Not too much sightseeing as they will be doing interiors today.

Gotta give some major kudos to DP John Leonetti.  He’s been working on Sleepy Hollow, but before that he was also DP on our smash hit supernatural flick, The Conjuring.  Now my sources have told me he has made the leap to director for The Conjuring 2!  Even though we are a tad sad it is not shooting here, congrats John!  Your crew members have deemed you one of the greatest guys to work with!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/11/2013 Jill Jones, Amandla Stenberg on set of Sleepy Hollow, A Cucalorus Must See and More.

JillJonesIn case you missed it last week, Jill Marie Jones (Girlfriends) has joined the cast of Sleepy Hollow as Cynthia, the former wife of Frank Irving (Orlando Jones) and mother to their teenage daughter, Macey played by Amandla Stenberg.  (Might I add I love the fact that Jones and Jones are playing the ex married couple.)  Jill and Amandla have been in Wilmywood since last week and their debut episode airs November 25th.  Both have recurring roles, so look forward to having these two lovely ladies in town for a few weeks.  Amandla is already having a great time on set.

Let’s back up a bit and take a look at tonight’s episode, The Midnight Ride, shall we! Abbie and Ichabod look for clues to stop the evil in town; Abbie receives an unexpected visit from Andy Brooks (John Cho).

Bad_Grandpa_USAlthough Thor: The Dark World hammered the competition at the weekend box office earning $86 million in its debut, our North Carolina shot Bad Grandpa remained strong with $11.3 million. The comedy’s three-week total stands at $78.7 million.

CUCALORUSA CUCALORUS MUST SEE: Broadcast – A Man and his Dream is the story of Ralph Epperson growing up in the 1920s and 30s the son of tobacco farmers in the hills of Southwestern Virginia/Northwestern North Carolina and daring to dream of a different life. As a boy he discovered radio and from then on was led by a desire to understand how to transmit sound through the airwaves. This love of technology was coupled with a passion for the broadcast2music native to his growing up, “it was then called old time and now we call it bluegrass,” along with a strong faith in God and community. In 1948 Ralph realized his dream with the opening of his first station, WPAQ 740 AM, Mt. Airy, NC, “the voice of the Blue Ridge” but his dream didn’t stop there. Most of his family followed him out of the tobacco fields and into radio. broadcastToday more than 150 radio stations around the nation owe their beginnings to Ralph Epperson and his dream as well as countless musicians who continued their music and passed along the tradition that still exists today of Blue Ridge style string music. In 2005 Director, Jordan Nance, dared to dream that despite his physical limitations from severe cerebral palsy he could make a film about Ralph and WPAQ. Now in 2013 Jordan’s dream is a reality.

The screening will be on Sunday, Nov 17 at 10:45AM in the studio theatre at Thalian Hall. There will be live bluegrass for those who come a little early and enjoy Jones Smith & Co.

Catch the opening minute of Jordan Nance’s first documentary film, Broadcast: A Man and His Dream. WATCH IT NOW

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/07/2013 TV GUIDE crowns Sleepy Hollow the Winner, Cucalorus, Giveaways and more.

 Sleepy-Hollow-TitleLast night, Star Magazine claimed Nicole Beharie, the actress who plays Abbie on Sleepy Hollow bit the hair stylist sending the crew member to the hospital to get a tetanus shot.  Again, it’s from a tabloid, so…  My sources tell me that no crew members  are “barking” at her when she walks and haven’t seen anyone in the cast doing such nonsense as reported by the tabloid.  Like I said earlier,  whoever “leaked” this story seems to be looking for attention or a pay check.  Even if it is true, who does that? Contact a tabloid…Seriously? READ STORY NOW

tvguideThat craziness didn’t stop TV Guide from crowning Sleepy Hollow the champion! They conducted a series of polls in their Fall TV Popularity Contest, asking users which shows they liked and which they didn’t. After more than 350,000 votes were cast, Fox’s Sleepy Hollow was deemed the winner!

Weather permitting, Sleepy Hollow will be shooting at St. James Church, also walking and talking on Ann St. between 4th and 5t.  They are scheduled to be at  Bannerman Station on Walnut St. as well.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/06/2013 – Sequel for Bad Grandpa, The PCAs, Sleepy Hollow, Oprah and more.

Bad_Grandpa_USA sequel is already in the works for North Carolina shot, Bad Grandpa! In fact it was already shot. The film’s lead star Johnny Knoxville has confirmed that an unofficial sequel is already being cut together. Just like the Jackass films before the old geezer flick, there is always a plethora of footage that hits the cutting room floor.  So, what do they do with all that footage? Release an unofficial sequel (dubbed “.5″) on DVD! But this time it will be slightly different as the new film will feature two Oscar-nominees cut out of the theatrical cut: Spike Jonze and Catherine Keener.  As for a full Bad Grandpa 2? Knoxville says he’s up for both. Bad Grandpa 1.5 will be released simultaneously with the theatrical release on DVD and Blu-ray.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/05/2013 Under the Dome on DVD, Marilyn Manson, Nick Nolte, Robert Redford, Sleepy Hollow and more.

Robert RedfordAbout five years ago (maybe more), North Carolina got very excited about the film adaptation of Bill Bryson’s best-selling memoir, A Walk in the Woods. It was going to star Paul Newman and Jack Nicholson.  Newman was a little apprehensive about signing on.  According to a source, he said if he need the use of cue cards, he would not do the film.  Not much longer after that, the beloved philanthropist, took a turn for the worst and passed away.  All hope for the movie to be made was lost.  Skipping ahead to today, there is not only hope for the flick to rev up again, but two actors have recently signed on to the project. Robert Redford and Nick Nolte. According to NickNolteDeadline.com, the film is a road-trip comedy about an aging travel writer who decides to hike the 2,000-mile Appalachian Trail, accompanied by a long-estranged high school buddy he’s been avoiding for years. Along the way, the duo face off with each other, nature and an eccentric assortment of characters only to discover that some roads are better left untraveled.   Larry Charles (Borat, Bruno) is set to direct.  It is aiming for a March start and a release date of December 4, 2014.  Although we probably will never see it here in Wilmington, hopefully the mid to western part of NC will hopefully see its return!
tscc3 I gotta thank Jody Hill and Danny McBride for giving our local skating center some love, as they kept the real name of the business, Jellybeans.  If you caught Danny McBride on Jimmy Kimmel, he talked about Marilyn Manson being here in Wilmywood, doing a scene for Eastbound and Down.  And if you don’t have the premium channel, you might have missed his rolling cameo on HBO.  Check it out.


SH_HeadlessIt was great to have Sleepy Hollow back on the small screen! The ratings will be out after 11am EST.  Rest assured I will be on it!  We will see if we held on to our audience during the baseball hiatus.  Today, they are transforming Greenfield Lake Park into Manhattan park.   They will be filming the actors traveling through park talking and then argument ensues.  You might be able to check out the action from afar as they will be in between the skate park and playground.  They will be adding a cute little hot dog stand and some extra picnic tables for a little character.

Local Actor Nabs Opening Scene in “Last Vegas” OJ Takes You on a Set Tour, Conjuring #1 Again!

Tonight you can go see one of our local actors in the flick with some of the most legendary actors. Josh Cohen got the amazing opportunity to land a role in Last Vegas, which opens in theaters today!

josh cohenJosh says it’s a small part in the first scene of the movie, but that is HUGE if you ask me.  What actor wouldn’t love to be in the opening scene of a movie with the caliber of actors cast in this flick!  But, yes, he is being appropriately humble.  So in the opening scene we go straight to a flashback to 1950’s Brooklyn.  Josh plays Jimmy,  the head greaser.  “The young Robert De Niro, young Morgan Freeman, young Kevin Kline, and Young Michael Douglas are causing trouble in my buddy’s general store, said Josh. “My two greaser friends and I walk in to see our friend Danny, the shipowners son, on the floor. The kids then try to steal a bottle of Josh Cohen_runalcohol and run out of the store while we chase them.  I’m the first one to call the kids out for why my buddy is lying on the floor.  It was a great experience.”

Josh has some stories to tell including how he got the gig and a hilarious story with he and Kevin Kline in the make up trailer.  LISTEN NOW!

I spoke with Johnny Griffin with the Wilmington Film Commission, and he said that there was no ranking order for the Top Film Locations Worldwide, it was in alphabetical order.  Good!  I didn’t like being #9!  So hell yeah!  Love making that top ten list!  That is HUGE!

ConjuringThe Conjuring takes the top spot debuting at #1 on both DVD and Blu-Ray charts!  According to Nielsen research, of its first-week sales, 33 percent were on Blu-ray Disc.

The Squeeze is shooting downtown again today at 128 S. Front St and on the street on the 400 block of S. 2nd St.  They are going to have 5 of the cast members on set.  And say good bye to the beautiful Jillian Murray she heads back home today! (unless weather makes her stay for another day of shooting).

Haven’t had the chance to see the set of Sleepy Hollow.  No Worries.  Orlando Jones personally takes you.  Check out one of his WhoSay videos.  Pretty damn hilarious!
