Kim Stewart – Casting

Yay!  It’s Friday!  And a three-day weekend at that!  I would first like to give kudos to Kim, our Film Peep of the Day, and her choice in Wilmywear! Okay let’s go Under the Dome.  They are getting a very late start today, shooting at 4pm and going until early Saturday morning in Currie, NC.

tammy_wilmywoodThe Tammy cast and crew is filming on Wilmington St. and N Walker St. in Burgaw today.  A very funny scene.  Let’s just say there are cops involved!  They will also be be shooting on the road as well.  You will get a glimpse of Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon.  Plus, our lovely, local and talented gal, Barbara Weetman, has a part in this scene!

Wilmington/Clinton hometown boy, Chris McCullen, is competing in the premiere episode of TNT’s 72 HOURS airing Thursday, June 6, at 9 pm (ET/PT) on TNT, throws Chris into icy blue waters of the Yasawa Islands in Fiji.  Chris was born in Clinton, NC, but spent most of his life in the Wilmington area. He moved to San Diego to pursue his dance dreams and since has created a style of dance that teaches people how to dance to electronic music.  Good Luck Chris!

72 Hours literally DROPS you into the wild as they release nine strangers in exotic locations with nothing but a bottle of water and a GPS tracking device. In teams of three, they have just 72 hours to navigate the wilderness against treacherous terrain in a race to be the first to find a hidden briefcase filled with the $100,000 Grand Prize!!

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you after the Memorial Day weekend or if breaking news comes in on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Until then, that’s a wrap!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 04/23/2013 Another Mega-Star headed to ILM?

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD

LISTEN TO PODCAST

It’s a brief segment today.  Under the Dome will be back in Burgaw.  On a side note, I wonder if Dean Norris who is in UTD will reunite with one of his fellow cast members from Little Miss Sunshine, Toni Collette.  She will be here filming Tammy.  I also wonder if he even knows she will be in town?  I sent him a tweet so we’ll see if there will be a reunion.

Now, speaking of this big budget flick, we could see another mega star in the Port City, but he won’t be showing off his acting skills.  Will Farrell has signed on as producer of the comedy.  A cameo is possible, but he is focusing more on his producer role and he takes that seriously.

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every morning (Monday-Friday) at 8:30am.  Got scoop?  email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Until then, that’s a wrap!
