THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 03/04/2014 Max Steel Opens Offices, Under the Dome’s 1st Day, Secrets & Lies, and more.

It was a great first day Under the Dome.  The set in Burgaw was filled with CBS peeps and of course, as expected, they had a visit from Neal Baer and Stephen King himself. King, of course, was his typical humorous self yesterday.  If you haven’t seen this yet, it’s short, sweet and hilarious!

But perhaps the most noted part of the day was how they kicked off their first morning of season two.  It was with a moment of silence for Sarah Elizabeth Jones.

Their slates still branded with her name as well as a crane in large red taped letters.  They made sure crew members took on the responsibility of looking out for each other as well as themselves.  The rain finally had its way in the early afternoon, so they made a company move to the stage, at beautiful Screen Gems Studios, where they will be this morning.

Day two resumed for ABC’s Secret & Lies, but the rain didn’t stop them from filming Ryan Phillippe in what will be Ben’s  morning jog that changed his life forever.  The very social producer Aaron Kaplan tweeted:

Shanley CaswellYesterday, we finally got a casting announcement.  Congrats to our latest stars. Shanley Caswell and Aimee Garcia will join the cast of what was once called the Red Zone is now back to its original vague title, The Untitled Nikki Tuscano Project.  Shanley Caswell is making her way back to Wilmywood, as she was just recently here for The ConjuringShe will play Holden’s daughter, a “cute but slightly awkward teenager with a lively interest in world affairs.”

Max Steel has officially opened offices here in Wilmington, but it is not at Screen Gems Studios. I’m not sure if they want their office info released yet, so holding off for the moment.  But I can give a nice warm welcome to the office staff!

Secretary-Sharon-DeckerThanks to WWAY for shooting me this over yesterday.  It seems as though Secretary of Commerce Sharon Decker wants to ease our minds when it comes to the NC Film Incentives.  She believes the incentives won’t be terminated but cannot assure us if they will remain the same. Well, no one really can.  Only the May vote can tell us that.  And if they keep them but decide to enact any changes, that could lead to a temporary lapse.  So, everything is simply up in the air at the moment.  However, as reassuring as Decker sounds, we need to continue to contact our legislators about keeping the incentives intact, because even a short lapse could be devastating for North Carolina.  I do appreciate her addressing the issue though because it affects 1000s of us here in NC.  READ MORE NOW

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 02/28/2014 Secrets & Lies Rolling, Under The Dome, Sarah Jones Online Memorial, and more.

secretsLiesYay!  The first production day of the season!  ABC’s Secrets & Lies kicks it off in Porter’s Neck.  Wanna know some more secrets?  How about how Producer Aaron Kaplan feels about Wilmington and why he chose to bring it here.  Hunter Ingram of the Star News snagged this fabulous quote:

aaronkaplan“When we were trying to decide where to shoot this, one of the most important things for us was that we had to pick an American city that felt very safe, very bucolic and a place that would be rattled by something like the murder of a child,” Kaplan said.  

Aaron says more and he wasn’t the only one that agreed.  Find out who cited our excellent film incentives and crew base to seal the deal. READ MORE NOW

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!!!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 02/06/2014 – GOOD LAWD! Max Steel, Secrets Lies, Under the Dome, Steven Fiore and more!

Wow!  Such an amazing week for BREAKING casting news. Yep, last week was the quiet before the storm.  I have blogged all damn day and night monitoring all the media outlets and doing some major snooping around with my own sources.  So, basically, I haven’t slept in days!  I have GOT to hire some staff!  Okay, so, let’s review what we have so far and put it together in one blog. Damn, I need a nap!

SecretsLies_CastABC’s SECRETS AND LIES  – Ryan Phillippe signed the dotted line yesterday and now he is a done deal.  Just after that announcement came one that made us go Hmmmm.  Natalie Martinez is playing leap frog with the networks. Martinez will play the character Jess, the child’s devastated mother.  Secrets & Lies centers on a house painter and family man (Phillippe) who becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a young boy when he finds the body while out on a morning run. He must find the real murderer to clear his name and save his marriage, his reputation and any chance of having a normal family life again. If you remember EP Neal Baer said earlier last month, that two of our favorite characters on Under the Dome won’t live to see episode two. Now with that being said, if Natalie is joining the cast of ABC’s Secrets & Lies, could “Linda” be the one of the two that won’t live to see another episode?? Hmmmmm….  WAITING ON CASTING CHOICES FOR  16-year-old Natalie, 12-year-old Abby, Ben’s wife, Christy.

UTD_CASTCBS’S UNDER THE DOME SEASON 2 – The 18-year-old newbie actress Grace Victoria Cox  will recur as the mysterious and beautiful Melanie, who catches the eye of Joe (Colin Ford). Eddie Cahill CSI: New York has been cast as Big Jim’s brother in law, Sam, who is the “crazy drunk” who lives in the woods!   Also, Karla Crome (Misfits) joins the enclosed gang!  Crome will play Rebecca, the beautiful school teacher who we’ve been talking about.

MAXSTEEL_CASTMATTEL’S MAX STEEL – Open Road will release domestically in 2015. Atlanta boy, Ben Winchell will take on the lead role of Max McGrath.  He’s best known for his roles in Lifetime’s Pregnancy Pact, as well as Dixon in season 3 of A.N.T. Farm (Disney) and Eric in season 2 of Necessary Roughness (TNT). Ana Villafane will play Max’s love interest, Sydney Gardner.  She’s an up-and-coming Latina actress and singer from Miami, Florida.  Villafane is best known for her starring role in Anchor Bay’s 2012 release Hiding playing a protected witness relocated from New York City to Montana.  Also, in this flick was Jeremy Sumpter who we just had here working on The Squeeze.

So get ready for Max Steel which will make an appearance at the EFM (European Film Market) and Mattel and Dolphin Films will unveil more details about the live-action adaptation.  So, that means we can look forward to more details this week!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 01/30/2014 Director Named for Secrets & Lies, Max Steel, NC Oscar Nom Revoked and More.

secretsLiesABC’s Secrets and Lies has named their director.  It looks like Charles McDougall will be directing the pilot episode.  If you don’t know the name, you’ve definitely has seen his work at some point.  His credits span every network from primetime to premium including The Office, House of Cards, Sex and The City, as well as the pilot episode of the new show Resurrection, which is also from ABC, shooting in Atlanta. And here’s a little fun connection.  Our love Kevin Sizemore from Season One of Under the Dome will be playing Gary Humphrey in at least five episodes.  The Aussie turned US television series begins production in Wilmywood, February 21st.

Max-SteelNow moving on to Mattel, we knew that Max Steel has been pushed back, but now we have a bit of a clearer picture.  It’s looks like production will begins in March.  No casting details have been released as of yet.  I will keep you posted on those details.
oscarrevokedPeople Magazine came out with an article that put the number of NC Film Oscar Noms back to two again.  We have of course Iron Man 3 (VSX) as well as Bad Grandpa(Hair/Makeup) up for the golden statue.  The third Oscar nod went to Bruce Broughton, who was nominated for writing the music for Alone Yet Not Alone that filmed in Transylvania County here in North Carolina.  Bruce had his Best Original Song nomination taken away by the Academy yesterday.  Why? People went on to say:
“Broughton, who is a former member of the Academy’s Board of Governors and a current member of the Music Branch executive committee, emailed members of the branch to make them aware of his submission.”  
Apparently that is a HUGE No-No. Do you think he deserved to lose the Oscar Nom?  Post your thoughts below!  READ ARTICLE NOW
