Well, it looks like it just might happen, HOWEVER, I was told not to get to excited because they will probably bring up everything BUT film. We shall see. It’s shame because we will lose Sleepy Hollow if they order a complete 3rd season. Canada is the latest rumor.

    WILMYWOOD CELEB DISH

    220px-28_Days_PosterThe Highest Earning Actresses From the Past Year according to Forbes have some North Carolina ties.  The top four in fact.
    Sandra Bullock, who left East Carolina University only three credits short of graduating to pursue an acting career is the top breadwinner earning $51 million last year.  She was here in NC  for the flick 28 Days as well as Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood.  Others on the list:
    Jennifer Lawrence … $34 million (Hunger Games)
    Jennifer Aniston … $31 million. (We’re the Millers)
    Gwyneth Paltrow … $19 million (Iron Man 3)

    I suppose that’s why Gwyneth can afford just about anything, like Thermage laser treatments. She tells Hello! magazine “It’s non-invasive but it’s quite painful, like having your face smacked with a rubber band that has an electric shock in it. But it works.” Each treatment costs $5,240.

    susan cfrgThe NY Post claims thieves broke into Susan Sarandon‘s Manhattan apartment on Saturday and stole a laptop, a camera, jewelry and documents. A burglar used a ladder to jump from one roof to the next before entering Susan’s home through a terrace door.

    lindseyThe Sun claims Lindsay Lohan is planning to write her autobiography. A source tells the paper: “Lindsay held meetings at major publishing houses in London recently — and the stories she promised the literary agents made their jaws drop. She’s prepared to put everything out there and has already proved she’s not shy with the list of men she claims to have slept with. Lindsay is now looking for a ghost writer. It may seem unlikely, but she thinks she’s in with a shot of getting EL James to work on it — they met recently at [London nightspot] Chiltern Firehouse and got on well. Another pie in the sky idea was that she might persuade JK Rowling to work with her.” Hmmm, we shall see.

    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

    THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 02/27/2014 Two Features Coming to NC, A Focus on Local Hires, Conjuring Sequel, Sarah Jones’ Family

    ncfilmNorth Carolina has two more feature films coming to shoot this spring and summer. And each are both filming in more than one state. 

    Overflow Entertainment is taking The Sin Seer to two states.  North Carolina and Louisiana. The story involves Rose Ricard who has been given a very special gift by God — the ability to see the sin a person carries in their soul. While she uses her gift to, hopefully, rights the wrongs in society, she also knows the gift comes with a price tag.

    Is it just me or does John Noble needs to be a consultant on this flick? (Sleepy Hollow reference). Producing is Angela White.  Paul Hannah is the writer/director.   Production is currently scheduled to begin May 5.

    Pathways Productions is bringing us The Show.   Looks like they will also be splitting the love between NC and Atlanta, GA.  As it stands, they plan to shoot this summer.  The Show is about Percy King, a very talented musician who aspires to be a great band director, but of course a girl gets in the mix, and in the way messing with his emotions and leaves him questioning his morals.  The production company deems it a story about “man’s constant strive for perfection and his constant inability to achieve it and sheds light on a community of often misunderstood strangers that act as a family, even in the darkest of times, and shows you why no matter what, the show, much like life must always go on.” Justin Jacobs is writing.  JR Butler will direct.

    No word yet if they will be filming in Wilmington or in other parts of North Carolina.  I will keep you posted.

    Red27Stunt Coordinator Peter King and the Red 27 crew had their hands full Monday as over 50 stunt performers filled Stage 3 at EUE/Screen Gems Studios, for Under The Dome Season Two stunt auditions.  Now, normally you don’t see too many open auditions when it comes to stunts, around these parts anyway, but there was a damn good reason. 1) Meet new talent.  2) Local hires.  As we gear up for multiple shows filming simultaneously, Peter wanted to reach out to the Wilmington area and really see who is out there.  Monday’s 2-hour action packed audition gave Peter and his team a chance to meet performers face to face and get a taste of what they’ve got.  It’s really important to Peter to hire local first, then if there is a need that cannot be filled to look regionally.  And after reviewing the tapes yesterday, they think they found some great new folks to add to their list of local talent.  On a personal note: THANK YOU for hiring local!

    ConjuringNew Line has set a release date for the sequel for The Conjuring. It will be a pre-Halloween release on Oct. 23, 2015.  Looks like Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will return.  Variety reported that the yet-to-be titled sequel does not have a director yet.  Location is still unknown at this time.

Our thanks go out not only to the Slates for Sarah community, but also to every hard worker that ever contributed to the industry. She considered you family. We smile because Sarah smiled. We laugh because Sarah laughed. And we cry because we miss her so much. Be kind. Be safe. But, above all, be happy! Never forget Sarah Jones!”
