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.

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!

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!
