TAMMY Trailer Out – WATCH IT NOW!

Well, I guess this all worked out.  Post 1200/Giant Culture has lost power with the storm.  We had to move the event to Saturday.  And just as we made that decision, this popped up!  So yay!  I guess we can all see it now.   Plus, this Saturday we will be showing the EXTENDED trailer, a different one than the one on Youtube, so still think it will be fun!

She quickly packs her necessities, and travels down three houses to her parent’s home. Upon denied use of her mom’s car to drive to Niagara Falls, she quickly resorts to an “ailing” grandmother, who also lives in the home…Only instead of traveling alone, Grandma Pearl wants in on the road trip. After realizing Grandma Pearl has the funds, they hit the road. Pearl soon proves to be quite the alcoholic despite her diabetes, and Tammy quickly turns into the “baby-sitter.” From finding love in a bar to robbing a Toppy Jack’s in order to bail Pearl out of jail,the quirky adventure will have you finding yourself riding along for the misadventures of Tammy.  Source: IMDb

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 05/30/2013 – Homicide Investigation points finger at Dan Aykroyd.

 

Wilmywood Film Peep of the Day

ArtHoover

Art Hoover – Art’s Motion Picture Catering

A Homicide Investigation points a finger at Dan Aykroyd. A landfill worker uncovered film of Dan Aykroyd standing over a bloody corpse.  The man in Canada turned it in to police, thinking he stumbled upon murder evidence caught on film.  Turns out it was a scene was from the 1990 flick, “Loose Cannons.”  Aykroyd was last seen Wednesday at the Blue Post signing his Crystal Head Vodka.  His cast members of Tammy are getting a late start shooting into the very late hours in Shallotte at “The Grille” on Main St. today.

Back in 1989, Wilmywood was the home for the movie, Dream a Little Dream, starring the “Coreys.”  Corey Feldman had a say about wardrobe and used his own, very expensive black jacket.  Well, that jacket was stolen.  Now over 20 years later, it was finally recovered at a Boston Flea Market and was returned to Corey.  Feldman said  it’s worth $100,000.  Some of the locations used in Dream a Little Dream include: New Hanover High, Thalian Hall, the old Roy’s Riverboat Landing, the house at 1705 Princess St.

We have yet another reason to be grateful for NBC’s Revolution shooting its first season in Wilmywood.  The series brought in over $50 million to the state. The Wilmington Regional Film Commission says an  estimated $56 million was spent – wages earned/taxed in NC along with goods and services bought and taxed.  Don’t forget the season finale is Monday at 10:00pm EST.

Just a few more tidbits:

Under the Dome is getting a late morning start in Currie NC.   Our own sports star, baseball player Trot Nixon will be inducted into Wilmington Walk of Fame today.

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every weekday morning at 8:30am LIVE 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 – 05/29/2013

Morning Peeps!  Well, it wasn’t just the sport stars that came to Wilmywood to enjoy the 3 day weekend.  WECT reported The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrey was enjoying the Port City as well.

Yesterday, I made a BIG correction on the blog.  There was a bit on confusion about whether Fox TV’s Sleepy Hollow was coming here or going to Charleston, SC.  Well, it’s looks like it is finishing the season in Wilmywood.

sheiladanSince yesterday was Dan Aykroyd‘s last day on the set of Tammy, I was hell bent on meeting him (again after more than 20 years).  So, I caught up with him on set yesterday, and let me tell you that is one sweet, sincere man.  And he loves Wilmington.  The Tammy crew is trekking back to Burgaw today.  Big park scene, lots of kids running around.  You will be seeing Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon on set.

Under the Dome is on the lot for the first part of the day, then they return for their N. 15th St. location.  And speaking of UTD, if you are already a fan, you are so gonna love what I have coming up for you! Well, what Sunny 104.5 has coming up for you!  So, don’t miss a single blog!

Also, an FYI for Makeup Artists in town. I don’t know what brand you use, but wanted to pass on that Halloween and More carries these brands in case you need something locally:  (for special effects, everyday makeup, face & body paint, theatrical  etc…)  Ben Nye, Paradise “Mehron”, Brand X “Colored Liquid Latex”, Exotic Eyes Body Art, Xotic Eyes Body Art and Makeup, Snazaroo Face Paint and Don Post FX.

CORRECTION: UPDATED: WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 05/28/2013 What a weekend!

12:27PM: SLEEPY HOLLOW UPDATED – SCROLL TO BOTTOM FOR ALL THE DETAILS!

Wow! So much to talk about over the weekend! It seems like the Wilmington area was the place to be for sports stars. Especially Wrightsville Beach. If you missed my blogs over the weekend, I reported that Jonathan Stewart, super star running back for the Carolina Panthers, was hanging out at our beach for the weekend. He arrived on Friday and let everyone know with a tweet: @Jonathanstewar1: “I’m out here in wrightsville/”willmington” beach for Memorial Day weeknd enjoying the nice weather! #holla#northcarolina.”

michaelphelps_instagram2Okay, so he can’t spell Wilmington, but hey we love him anyway, $10 says it was his damn auto-correct.  But Jonathan wasn’t the only superstar. Olympic swimmer, Michael Phelps was here too! In fact last night he was spotted at the Carolina Yacht Club in Wrightsville Beach.  He is reportedly dating the GORGEOUS Carolina Yacht Club member, Win McMurry, On-air Reporter for the Golf Channel. Phelps confirmed it with a tweet: @MichaelPhelps  #mdw USA there’s no better country!! @ Carolina Yacht Club http://instagram.com/p/Z1dDItSx1L/

There were other star sightings over the weekend. While I cannot confirm this, I was told that Mr. Oprah aka Stedman Graham was at Figure 8. No mention of Miss Winfrey however.

On a sad note, as we all geared up and got pumped for Sleepy Hollow, it seems as though their final decision has the production going to Charleston, SC. Booo! But hey, it does leave more room for productions to come in! Say, maybe like an Angelina Jolie flick!!  If you missed the huge A-List scoop, I have two confirmed reports about Angelina Jolie’s people scouting Wilmington for the upcoming movie, Unbroken, which she is directing. For complete details, check the full post on that story below.

Now back to the present! Under the Dome will be on stage for the day.  The good folks of Tammy are back in Wilmywood today. Things are already underway at the New Hanover Correctional Center then making a company move to N. 4th St. If you are a Dan Aykroyd fan, today is his last day on set. Booo! We will miss you Dan! At least we still get some more time with Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon! They are on set today as well.

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every weekday morning at 8:30am LIVE on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Until then, that’s a wrap!

ATTENTION!  UPDATE:  My sources tell me that SLEEPY HOLLOW is coming to Wilmywood after all.  There was a mix up of information with another TV series, a CBS show entitled, Reckless, that starts shooting in Charleston in July.  They shot the Pilot in Charleston back in February.  They originally shot a TV movie, then spun it into a TV series.  Although South Carolina jumped on the “incentives bandwagon,”  they weren’t strong enough to grab hold of the Fox series.  So, as it stands Sleepy Hollow is still projected to come here.  Yay!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD

Lots of little tidbits today!  Let’s start with where the stars will be today.  The fabulous folks Under the Dome are back on the lot today.  The Perfect Summer will be in Carolina Beach today.  FYI they are looking for EXPERIENCED surfers for their upcoming beach scenes being filmed in Carolina Beach and Wrightsville Beach.  Please submit a current photograph, age, contact information & wardrobe sizes to: perfectsummerextras@gmail.com with the subject SURFER.

Tammy is already under way this morning along Nun St.  Allison Janney makes her way to set today. Folks who were involved in yesterday’s shoot at Two Fat Ladies gave glowing reports about their experience on set.  Kristin shares about her husband’s time on set.   “He had a blast filming today and Friday.  He said Melissa McCarthy was so nice and hilarious. He sometimes found it hard to keep a straight face while filming.  She thanked everyone at the end if the day. Class act!”

"Crystal Head Vodka"The highlight of the day, however, took place at the ABC store down the street.  No, I am not kidding!  Dan Aykroyd headed to the liquor store and signed bottles of his Crystal Head vodka.  Yep, Glenn was lucky to get his hands on one! She also gave major praise (well -deserved) to the extras casting director Marty Siu.  People are going to have fun filming on Tammy with such great people.  To get in on the action visit the extras casting page.  They will be hiring over 2000 folks for this film!

Let’s also give a quick nod to the filming going on west of us!  Homeland 3 is just about ready to roll in a couple of weeks.  They are back in North Carolina, mainly in the Charlotte/Concord area. You can find all the Extras Casting opportunities here for ‘Homeland 3,’ as well as ‘Careful What You Wish For’ and ‘Banshee

Locally shot Safe Haven is hitting Blu-ray and DVD today. Although the film wasn’t released worldwide, it still managed to make a decent amount, pulling in over $71 million at the US box office.
