NC flick ‘Adrenaline’ gets picked up by Word Films

Many of you saw this flick last month as they SOLD OUT two showings here in Wilmywood.  And if you were one of the lucky ones to get  yourself a ticket, you already know this tidbit.  Regardless, you should be VERY proud of our Wilmington, NC filmmakers. Our local boys and one “good old boy,” John Schneider, got themselves a distribution deal with Word Films for the NC-shot, family feature,  Adrenaline.  It stars John Schneider along with local actors Michael Rosander, Myke Homes, and Anthony Reynolds to name a few.  Oh and let’s not forget the fabulous Gregory Alan Williams. It was written, produced and directed by Joseph Quinn Simpkins. Additional writers include Alex Chatfield and Michael Rosander. The film was produced by Del Baron among others.  It was truly a very collaborative effort.  SEE FULL CAST AND CREW CREDITS

After straightening the curves all these years, it was a pleasure to finally race in a straight line,” said Schneider, the beloved Dukes of Hazard star. “I am very excited about this film.

ICYMI, here’s the trailer. Enjoy!

Adrenaline is the story of a drag racer whose life is changed forever by a near-fatal car crash that leaves him partially paralyzed, forcing him to face new circumstances as he ultimately learns to race again.


THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 01/03/2013 Max Steel, Sleepy Hollow Birthdays and More!

Max-SteelYay!  It’s already Friday!  That went fast, didn’t it?  Alright let’s get right to it.  What a week of banter about Max Steel.  Ready for the latest?  I am getting mixed messages from the lot.  Some are saying that Max Steel plans to open up offices Monday.  BUT to counter that, I heard, nope, it’s just a rumor.  I guess we’ll find out Monday if it is  indeed true.   I have a feeling it won’t be for at least another week and that they will be at Screen Gems.  Pure speculation on my part however.  They are opening offices this month.  I will let you know ASAP. Max Steel is shooting in both Wilmington and Connecticut.
