If you remember he played Red Stevens in The Ultimate Gift which was partially shot in Charlotte.  And of course he was here back in 2001 for the Divine Secrets of the Yaya Sisterhood playing Shep Walker.

The Longest Ride is heading out to three locations today: They are heading to Wallace as well as Orange St. and back to the Cameron Art Museum.

Sleepy Hollow heads to Bijou Park this afternoon.

Blumhouse Productions has pushed back the release date for our Wilmywood shot Jessabelle. Originally, it was going to be released next month, but it will now hit theaters and on-demand services the week after Halloween, November 7th.

Jessabelle stars Sarah Snook, Mark Webber, and of course one of our favorite local actors David Andrews.
