Wilmywood Film Peep of the Day

A Homicide Investigation points a finger at Dan Aykroyd. A landfill worker uncovered film of Dan Aykroyd standing over a bloody corpse.  The man in Canada turned it in to police, thinking he stumbled upon murder evidence caught on film.  Turns out it was a scene was from the 1990 flick, “Loose Cannons.”  Aykroyd was last seen Wednesday at the Blue Post signing his Crystal Head Vodka.  His cast members of Tammy are getting a late start shooting into the very late hours in Shallotte at “The Grille” on Main St. today.

Back in 1989, Wilmywood was the home for the movie, Dream a Little Dream, starring the “Coreys.”  Corey Feldman had a say about wardrobe and used his own, very expensive black jacket.  Well, that jacket was stolen.  Now over 20 years later, it was finally recovered at a Boston Flea Market and was returned to Corey.  Feldman said  it’s worth $100,000.  Some of the locations used in Dream a Little Dream include: New Hanover High, Thalian Hall, the old Roy’s Riverboat Landing, the house at 1705 Princess St.

We have yet another reason to be grateful for NBC’s Revolution shooting its first season in Wilmywood.  The series brought in over $50 million to the state. The Wilmington Regional Film Commission says an  estimated $56 million was spent – wages earned/taxed in NC along with goods and services bought and taxed.  Don’t forget the season finale is Monday at 10:00pm EST.

Just a few more tidbits:

Under the Dome is getting a late morning start in Currie NC.   Our own sports star, baseball player Trot Nixon will be inducted into Wilmington Walk of Fame today.
