THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 05/20/2014 – What’s going down ‘Under the Dome’, Film Incentives, Locations today

Morning Wilmywood peeps!  It’s was CBS’s big press day yesterday and here’s what we learned about for the upcoming season two of Under the Dome.

UTD_Dean NorrisA more Gentle Big Jim?
Big Jim will have a “come to God or come to dome moment where he believes maybe his purpose in life should be that he shouldn’t be so nasty,” Norris says. “A different kind of Big Jim is required to survive under the dome.” Neal Baer adds, “It’s the season of transformation. This is the year where we will find out what they’re truly made of.” Just like the cocoon?

Max EhrichPeople get out? People get in?
“Maybe someone might possibly get out and maybe some might possibly get in,” Neal says. Max Ehrich plays Hunter who comes into the dome in episode 3. “but only digitally,” says Neal. “There’s a break in the dome that comes through where Internet messages can get through. In episode 3, Norrie and Joe start to get messages from this young man and we will actually meet him in Episode 8.” That is the episode they are working on now!

UTDmagnetic

The Dome has a magnetic personality. 
The Dome becomes magnetic, sending all the town’s metal appliances, vehicles, to the walls of the Dome. Won’t do well for anything living. Someone’s bound to receive death by toaster.

Eriq-La-SalleAn ER reunion?
Yep, don’t forget that Neal Baer was EP and writer of that 15 season show!   Sherry Stringfield (Big Jim’s late wife, Pauline) who was also on the medical drama is back for episode 10. ER alum Eriq La Salle will direct that upcoming episode.  She was filming here earlier in the season.  We will be glad to have her back!

Where’s everyone shooting today?

  • Under the Dome – Sunnyvale Dr.
  • Sleepy Hollow – Cotton Exchange – an overnight shoot
  • Max Steel – N. 5th St.

EDUCATE_NCFILM

Now, we have done all we can do, letting Gov. Pat McCrory know that we need his help.  It’s time to move on to phase two.  Kinda going back to where we started.  But now more than ever it is very important we reach out to our own legislators and tell them that we support our film incentives and want them to stay!  Don’t know who represents you?  No problem!  (See Below)  It is crucial that you only reach out to those in your district!  Hate to say it this way, but honestly, if you are not a voter in another legislator’s district they could not care less about what you have to say. Make sure in your calls or email to your own representatives you stay positive and let them know how film impacts your life.

WHO REPRESENTS ME IN THE NC HOUSE & NC SENATE? FIND OUT YOUR DISTRICT NOW

REGISTER NOW:  FILM INDUSTRY DAY @ THE NC LEGISLATURE  ATTENTION: Small Businesses and vendors!

IMG_8745_newIf you want to be an active participant in the film industry day at the NC Legislature on June 4, 2014 from 9am to 1pm REGISTER NOW!

The most important people that need to attend are the small businesses. These are the folks we need to put on a bus and send up to Raleigh. So whatever businesses you are friends with please reach out to them and pass this message along. Its so imperative that they come. More important than the crew more important than the background extras because when they see businesses it will really hit home.

Yesterday, the big news came out about The Heart. They are coming to Wilmywood! And it looks like they will be in pre-production beginning in May.

Kristen WiigIndian Paintbrush Productions is making this comedy and it will star Kristen Wiig, Sam Rockwell as well as Allison Janney (who was just here for Tammy).   Kristen will star as a cash-strapped woman who agrees to transport black market organs with a man she just met, to be played by Sam.  The writer/director Nat Faxon is no stranger to Wilmington as he has family here.

Our local boys Hank and Jed Movie Pictures are on their way to Boston for PAXEast, one of the largest gaming conventions on the East coast.  The convention sold out in four hours!  They were invited by Plantronics Gaming to be the stars of their booth for the weekend.  Their animated comedy series, Battlefield Friends, which derived from the characters in the game Battlefield 3, is the top show on Machinima’s sub-channel, Happy Hour. The Hank and Jed team announced that the premiere of Season 4 of Battlefield Friends will be on April 41st.  Go figure! I will be following them around all weekend, so I will keep an eye out for the fun on the Battlefield Friends FB page, which has already cleared 121,000 fans!

Today let’s celebrate some Wilmington film crew members for their entrepreneurship and some cast members’ birthdays!

dukeBBQLet’s talk about something very important here in the south. BBQ! You like BBQ? Well, Wilmywood has the place for you! Duke’s Old South BBQ in Leland on Village Rd.! Duke’s secret recipes that have been in the south for generations. If you get a chance to stop in at Duke’s please have the pit cooked pulled pork and be sure to say hello to husband-and-wife team David and Bo McCall.  David is lending his architectural skills to the set design team of the upcoming FX pilot How and Why .

He was once known simply as the “wild eyed guy” on MADtv and the 7-Up “Up Yours” guy but these days, Orlando Jones is a household name. A name I’m sure many people will be tagging Twitter posts today to say “Happy Birthday” to Sleepy Hollow‘s own “Captain Frank Irving.”  Did you know that not only has Orlando been in over 30 films in his career, that he is also credited s_rg_fsborlando0910_with some video game voiceover action as well? He is a father, a husband and a producer, writer and director. Don’t wait until Sleepy Hollow returns to Wilmywood in May,  follow Orlando on Twitter  and tell him today! Happy birthday from the Sleepyhead HQ!!  P.S. FREE FRANK!

dean-norris-64th-annual-primetime-emmy-awards-02Big shout out to Wilmywood domie, Dean Norris who turns 51 today! We all know Mr. Norris as “Big Jim” the power loving local crazy man of Chester’s Mill and if you follow him on Twitter, you can see that he’s quite the larger than life man outside of the dome too!

This SAG award winner and Harvard grad with the charismatic smile has been in over 30 films and too many TV shows to count! (I don’t have enough fingers and toes!) Wilmywood has gotten to know Mr. Norris over the course of the UTD series and couldn’t be happier to know that he’s here to celebrate his birthday with us. I’m SURE the Twitter feed on this birthday celebration will be something we won’t want to miss.  “Hey, Dean!  F*** You, Buddy!  Happy Birthday!”

So last week, I hinted at some really cool construction going on for MAX STEEL.  Well, my sources are telling me Ideal Cement is gonna be the Max Steel Headquarters.  It feels like TMNT all over again! And it looks like director Stewart Hendler is confirming the location.

I chatted via twitter with Ana Villafane over the weekend and she is pumped about playing Sydney.  Ben Winchell, who will be playing Max McGrath is gonna have one hell of a wardrobe, one piece in particular.

MAXSTEEL_CASTWriter Christopher Yost was doin’ a little bragging last week, saying “Know what else is ridiculously awesome? The suit for the Max Steel movie.”  Okay, seriously, I am starting to geek out about this flick.  Ahhhh! Let’s go into production already!

Under the Dome is headed to Southport today for a little church scene.   A lot of cast member on set today including Dean Norris, Mike Vogel, Rachelle LeFevre, and Eddie Cahill to name a few.

AshleyMarchingBandAnd now we always walk about Film=Jobs, but more importantly we need to discuss what film does for a community.  There are a ton of stories that you never hear, so I am gonna make sure to bring them all to light!

Jenny called The Sunny Morning Show on Sunny 104.5, and she told her story of how a television production (RED ZONE) has helped the Ashley High School Marching Band. READ STORY NOW

RED ZONE is back at Ashley High School today.  I am so glad for the sake of the cast and crew today is not an overnight shoot!  Good Gravy!

Oh Happy Friday Eve!  Crappy weather, however, thinking about Daylight Savings Time this weekend makes it a little better!  That “dark at 5 o’clock” crap has got to go! Sorry, just had to get that off my chest.  Okay, let’s do this!

Under the Dome remains undercover at the sound stages as a slew of international press fills the stages, including the adorable Michael Yo from The Insider.  He’s having way too much fun here in Wilmywood!

Our ABC show, Secrets & Lies, is up to their usual Porter’s Neck shoot.  Not too much to report.  Extras Casting Director for SNL, Ashli Bogart, will head back to South Carolina in a few weeks after she completes her time on our show here in Wilmywood.  If you remember, we blogged about the show Identity that is shooting in South Carolina.  This pilot for the CW is coming from our Sleepy Hollow producers, Kurtzman and Orci.  So, congrats on the gig Ashli, but hurry back!

Sleepy-Hollow-TitleAndrea Müller, Contributor for The Wilmywood Daily in Mannheim, Germany reported this morning that Sleepy Hollow got the axe in Germany.  She cited the network being the cause, not the audience.  READ STORY NOW

sarahjones2More articles are coming out about camera assistant, Sarah Jones.  The Hollywood Reporter wrote a few articles, but a warning, some are absolutely heartbreaking.

1) Producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan also found a way to help the Academy acknowledge Sarah Jones, the camera operator whose death has raised the issue of set safety, in the broadcast, which was greeted with an uptick in ratings. READ NOW

2) The parents of the young camera assistant killed in the train accident on the Georgia set of “Midnight Rider,” as well as an injured hairstylist who survived it, reveal harrowing and graphic new details. “I saw my life, my kids, my family, all of it before me,” says the hairstylist. “I was sure I was going to die.” READ NOW

SarahSlate2The folks at pledgetosarah.org are asking you to Take the Pledge! This is not about crews, or cast, or production, or us, or them,” it states.  “It’s about everyone on a production. Be safe and be aware. No exceptions. Safety is the responsibility we accept every time we step on a set and it only works if we all have each other’s backs – because no one wants to have to explain to a friend’s loved one why they didn’t speak up.”  TAKE THE PLEDGE NOW

“Why do productions come to NC? Ask FX Network Chief or CFO Noble House Entertainment” READ IT NOW!

Buzz, buzz, ohhh the buzz about tonight’s epic 2 hour finale of Sleepy Hollow tonight! Don’t forget, it’s starts one hour early. 8pm EST on FOX!

In tonight’s episode, Ichabod and Abbie uncover a secret in George Washington’s Bible; Irving makes a decision that alters his future; the battle between good and evil comes to a head, changing Sleepy Hollow forever.

Can’t wait!  Now let’s move on to our other hot show, Under the Dome!

UTDJim_LindaAt the TCA’s last week, a teaser trailer was played and interestingly enough, some weird things are happening, including Big Jim (Dean Norris) kissing Linda Esquivel (Natalie Martinez).  Ahhh!

According to EP Brian K. Vaughn,  “The second season is going to take us places the book never got to go, he’s bringing his own twists and turns. Stephen King gave us ideas we’ve never imagined. What’s outside [the dome] comes inside.”

UTDSet062013_0102It seems that a little more has come out about the new characters we talked about last month.  Like Sam, the crazy man in the woods, is actually Junior’s uncle.  He will be makin’ trouble for Barbie.    But that’s not the worst!  Neal Baer revealed that not one, but two of our favorite characters won’t live to see the second episode!   Ahhhhh! Noooo!!

Robert Downey Jr. accepts the People’s Choice Award

The People’s Choice Awards were live on CBS last night it look 90 minutes to get our first NC Film winner.  Robert Downey Jr. won for Favorite Action Movie Star and Iron Man 3 took the award for Favorite Action Movie.  Downey stole everyone’s attention with his lovable self.  He asked for some reverb, a spotlight, then some triumphant music.  With all three wishes granted, he proclaimed in a deep voice, “I am Iron Man.” He then raised his award and shouted, “and this is for the people!”  Awesome! Also, it wasn’t included in the live award show, but we can tell you Homeland nabbed a PCA for Favorite Premium Cable TV Show.

IM3Before the PCA’s on Wednesday, the BAFTA nominations came out.  Although ‘Gravity’ leads the British nominations with 11, NC Film is getting a little love from across the pond.  Iron Man 3 was nominated for Best Special Visual Effects.  Here is Stark’s competition:
