BREAKING: Greenlight for Nicholas Sparks flick in Wilmywood!

That’s what my sources are telling me!  The next Nicholas Sparks movie is getting in gear to shoot in Wilmywood. The Best of Me is about a pair of former high school sweethearts who reunite after many years when they return to visit their small hometown.

They are telling me it’s not an “if” but a “when” they are coming.  However, they have also said they wanna have this sweet story in the can by the end of the year, so it has to be soon.  Plus, sources are saying they have already begun contacting department heads to see what crew is available.  The romantic tale is being produced by Sparks as well as the AWESOME Denise DiNovi.  Last heard, Michael Hoffman was in talks to direct.  We don’t know who is starring in it yet, but I will get you that scoop ASAP.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD

LISTEN TO PODCAST

Lots of exciting news today!  First things first, however.  Under the Dome will be filming later today on 15th St and also on the lot. They are shooting some interior scenes, so not too much to see as a bystander.

 

Okay, I can’t take it anymore!  Gotta dish the latest rumors!  First, Nights in Rodanthe, then Safe Haven and now it looks as though our New Bern native, Nicholas Sparks, is returning for the drama/romance, The Best of Me.  The adaptation dives into the lives of  a pair of former high school sweethearts who reunite after many years when they return to visit their small hometown.   The brilliant and beautiful Denise DiNovi is set to produce. Michael Hoffman is in talks to direct.  Loving the love, Nicholas!  Thank you for sticking with your hometown posse!

The excitement continues even though there is a bit of a delay.  Yes, Christmas will have to wait as Loomis Fargo has been pushed to August.  Jim Carrey stars in this comedy flick about a night guard at an armored car company in the Southern U.S. who organizes one of the biggest bank heists in American history.  Interestingly enough, one of the screenwriters is Danny McBride who is currently hanging out were in Wilmywood shooting his HBO show, Eastbound and Down.  Other notable players attached are Lorne Michaels (Producer) and Jody Hill (screenwriter for Eastbound and Down).  Jared Hess will direct.  Loomis Fargo is looking for a release date in 2014.

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you Monday morning and every morning (Monday-Friday) at 8:30am on Sunny 104.5.  Until then, that’s a wrap!
