Our Under the Dome creator has got a birthday tomorrow so send your shout outs to Stephen King.  He turns 66 this weekend.

radiothonA HUGE thank you to Wilmywood as the Sunny 104.5 Caring for Kids at NHRMC Radiothon was a success!  Thanks to you we raised more than $43,000 to help outfit the kids indoor and outdoor area of the soon to be built SECU Family House.  Our Ebay Auction items from some of our Wilmington productions brought in $3800.00!  Yay!  You guys rock!

The offices are set up and the crew of The Remaining will move in Monday.  They are set to do re-shoots beginning Wednesday and will continue through the end of the week.

AdrenalineThe gang from the movie Adrenaline starring John Schneider and local boy Michael Rosander did not reach their Kickstarter goal,  so they are relaunching using  Indiegogo. Support their new campaign as the movie is already 65% complete.   Thanks again for all your help supporting our local filmmakers.

RumorslogoNow onto RUMORS FROM THE LOT. We know at some point Journey 3, starring Dwayne Johnson, is expected to come here sometime in 2014, whenever Dwayne and his co-star Josh Hutcherson can get their schedules aligned.  So, maybe perhaps while they figure that out, we could be just have our piece of The Rock here in Wilmywood for the next installment of GI Joe.   Apparently, the admirably goofy G.I. Joe: Journey-2-Josh-Dwayne_320Retaliation made enough money that Paramount and Hasbro are joining forces one more time.  As of now, “a silly subtitle has yet to be decided on.” Word on the Lot is some department heads were contacted to check on the availability of crew. I will keep you posted to see if indeed we can add some credence to these rumors.  To have the Rock twice would sure be nice!

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you Monday morning (unless something breaks) and every weekday morning at 7:30am & 8:30am LIVE on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Or just post your comments below!  Until then, that’s a wrap!!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 08/06/2013 Journey 3, Loomis Fargo, River Guard and More

100MEDIA_IMAG0228Happy Tuesday!  As many of you know, I have been busy working on the movie River Guard, doing some extras casting.  I can definitely say I am no Kim, Vanessa, Marty, Susan, Missy or Emmy, but I am enjoying it.  It’s “an edgy father-son redemption story wrapped around a bizarre murder trial in the South.”  So, while I am working on this court drama, I wanted to share with you who is having a lil fun in Wilmywood! The cast includes Eric Ladin(Boardwalk Empire), Peter Jason(Deadwood), Brett Cullen(Dark Knight Rises), Jeff Kober(Sons of Anarchy) and JD Evermore(Rectified).  The court scene begins today and will continue through the week. And please let me add a HUGE thank you to all the background actors who have helped this film immensely!  You so rock!

hallmark_movie_channelChristmas in Conway – Driving scenes are being shot today with the normal flow of traffic – you may get a chance to spot them on Oleander Dr., Dawson St., 17th St. and 16th St.  If you do spot them, please respect them and the work they are doing!

Sleepy Hollow is back on the dream stage today (EUE/Screen Gems Stage 10).  And don’t forget to VOTE for Wilmington to have that early screening of the premiere episode!  We need about 100 votes today to stay in the running!

Eastbound and Down folks are back at Kenny’s house in Porter’s Neck, then they will also be back on stage later today as well.

More details are coming out about Loomis Fargo.  We know Dumb and Dumber 2 will indeed go into production with Jim Carrey in Atlanta soon, so Jim is unavailable this fall.  My sources are telling me Loomis Fargo is now looking at a March start up date which will coincide with Under the Dome‘s return!  I’m gonna log this as a rumor for now.

under-the-dome-cbsSpeaking of which, how did you enjoy last night’s episode?  No spoilers!  I fell asleep at 9:30pm LOL – I DVRd it, so I cannot wait to see it when I head home this afternoon.  Watched it or not, I will be sharing with you the ratings.  This time around should be very interesting with the CBS blackouts!

Is Journey 3  still coming to Wilmywood?  My sources say yes and that some department heads have already read the script.  I was told they are waiting for Josh Hutchinson and Dwayne Johnson’s schedules to mesh, looks like a 2014 start date for them as well!  Again, logging it as a rumor.

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every weekday morning at 7:30am & 8:30am LIVE on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Or just post your comments below!  Until then, that’s a wrap!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 04/09/13 – Another Journey for ILM?



Yesterday, I told you that HBO’s Eastbound and Down officially opened offices.  Now my sources tell me they will be shooting only 8 episodes this year, and they will split their time between Wilmington and Myrtle Beach.  Shooting begins in a few weeks.

Under the Dome will be pulling a double shift today and will be enjoying parks and recreation as they head to Halyburton Park in the early afternoon, then they will head to Greenville Skate Park.

Now, onto HUGE news…GINORMOUS! Technically, this is just a rumor, HOWEVER, my sources are telling me it’s a 90% chance of being a trumour at this point!

It’s looking really good for Wilmington to be the home of yet another journey.  Journey 3, that is!  Yes, the rumors are swirling about Journey 3: From the Earth to the Moon coming to Wilmywood in September to begin prepping for production.  And it is very likely we will see Dwayne Johnson and Josh Hutcherson.  The production is awaiting contracts to be signed by these two stars.

This is great news for us financially.  Journey 2’s budget was a hefty $79 million, and it looks as though Journey 3 will match or go beyond.  A large portion of that spent right here in out home state!

If you remember last month I mentioned a Dolph Lundgren pilot is in the works.  The CW Network’s Rescue 3 is said to premiere this fall.  The Expendables co-star will tackle the role of Captain John Matthews.  In Rescue 3, a show which follows “the weekly adventures of an elite Southern California task force devoted to saving lives.”

With that being said, if you remember last week, I told you there might be another TV pilot looking to shoot here in June for 3 weeks.  Well, I am putting two and two together. Could it be Rescue 3 or another pilot or BOTH?  Guess we’ll find out soon enough.  It’s pure speculation at this point.

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