WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 04/29/2013 Biggest Loser, Tammy, Revolution and More

Good morning loves!  Let’s get the quickies out of the way.  Ha!  I said quickies.

Okay, in case you missed it, over the weekend I told you NBC’s Revolution was picked up for another season!  Yeah!

Hundreds of local cast and crew filled the movie theaters at Mayfaire’s Regal Cinemas for a special screening of Iron Man 3 last night, which made $195.3 million internationally over the weekend.

Under The Dome – shoots at the old cement plant today in Wilmington.  On the Wilmywood Facebook page, I asked what movie or TV show was a favorite to work on, and the most popular was indeed Under the Dome.

The  stars make their way into town this week.  Melissa and Susan are already here, but we can look forward to Kathy Bates, Dan Aykroyd, and Toni Collette arriving this week.  Tammy begins filming this Friday.

And finally, I would love to see a Wilmington, NC resident this time around take this thing home! So, if you’ve always wanted to be on the Biggest Loser and have nothing to lose but the weight, attend the open casting call, Saturday, May 4th in Charleston. Auditions for Season 15 will be held at the Music Farm in Charleston from 10am-6pm. You have a chance to win $250,000!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD

LISTEN TO PODCAST

Let’s start off with who is filming where.  Under the Dome will be on the lot for the first half of the day, then head over to Chestnut St for some interior shots.  Yeah, quite a short list now, but it’s gonna get super busy in a few weeks.

Now onto the most anticipated big budget film so far this year.  Tammy starring Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates has added Mark Duplass, Allison Janney and the legendary Dan Aykroyd to the cast.

McCarthy plays as a fast food restaurant employee who, after finding out her husband is cheating on her, she quits her job and sets out on a journey to Mount Rushmore to “find herself”.  She gets stuck with her “alcoholic, foul-mouthed, diabetic” grandmother (Sarandon) who insists on making the trip as well.

Duplass plays a man that McCarthy meets on the trip, spawning a strange relationship, while Aykroyd is playing Duplass’ father and Janney will play McCarthy’s mother.

And once again if you are looking to be an extra on this comedy, they will begin taking submissions within the next two weeks.  I, of course, will give you the info you need when I am allowed to tell you.

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.  Until then, that’s a wrap!
