WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 08/27/2013 New Movie Rolls into Town, Sleepy Hollow Screening and more.

Well, as you can see,the What’s Up in Wilmywood blog got a facelift, so lemme know how you like the new look.

swirlAnother movie rolls into town this week thanks to Swirl Films! This is their 3rd movie this year! Kim Stewart begins principal casting this week for The Dempsey Sisters. I can tell you the main cast is African-American and there some great roles to fill with various age ranges. More details to come!

Nothing new for Christmas in Conway. They continue to film in the Forest Hills area.

sleepyWe finally get a peek at the pilot episode of Sleepy Hollow tonight. If you RSVPd, the advance screening will be at Regal Cinemas at 7:30pm…BUT get there early! Per usual, it is oversold!  The Sleepy folks are shooting on the lot again today.

Congrats to Deborah Johnson!  She got the chance to play a 1700 witch on the show! You scored the pass to tonight’s screening of Sleepy Hollow!

The television premiere on September 16th comes on the same day as the Under The Dome ends – Gonna be one hell of a night!

And of course all you Domies were on the edge of your seat waiting to find out who indeed was the 4th hand.  Did you watch it? Under the Dome took first place once again in viewers (10.64m), adults 25-54 (3.4/09) and adults 18-49 (2.4/07).  Our show was up +3% in adults 25-54 (from 3.3/08), even in adults 18-49 and added +280,000 viewers (from 10.36m, +3%) compared to last week.

Apparently Under The Dome is panning out for Amblin Entertainment.  Although Madonna tops Forbes Magazine‘s new list of the top earning celebs.  Steven Spielberg came in second with a $100 million pay check from June 2012-June 2013.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 08/22/2013 Mystery celebrity revealed, Wilmywood wins Sleepy Hollow early screening

sleepyhollowWe did it!   Wilmington along with New York and Chicago are getting an advance screening of FOX’s Sleepy Hollow.  The show airs on Fox September 16th, but we get to see it this Tuesday, August 27th at Mayfaire’s Regal Cinemas!  Our lovely lady from WECT/WSFX Ashlea Kosikowski will host the event.  Perfect choice! Go hot mama go!  I’ll let you know about tickets later today.  If you spot police cars coming and going on near the 200 block if N. 5th St today, chances are it’s just Sleepy Hollow filming as they are doing some police work within the scene they are shooting.

There was a big buzz on the set of Eastbound and Down yesterday, the final day for EBD.  Sacha Baron Cohen graced us with his presence, well on the lot anyway.  He was here for the past few days.  I wonder if he actually got to see a ‘lil of Wilmywood besides the lot?  Hope so.  The gang has moved on to Charlotte.  But before Danny McBride left Wilmywood, he did say he hopes to bring more projects here.  Um, Loomis Fargo w/ Jim Carrey and Owen Wilson, perhaps!  After all he and Jody Hill did write and the word remains, they are looking at early 2014.

SNOW DAY!  Yesterday Christmas in Conway turned into Christmas in August as a wonderful holiday scene was shot with plenty of snow!  The gang was back at the ferris wheel location in Forest Hills and from what I heard, it was a very touching scene between Andy Garcia and Mary Louise Parker.  There were a lot of background extras and I heard a lot of hot Firemen.  Ha!  Kudos to the actors and background for staying pleasant while wearing their winter wear with the weather in the 80s.  (Kinda like working on Sleepy Hollow perhaps?)
