THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/20/2013 Another Movie for NC, Eric Laden, Encore’s Best Of and More!

gold45revolverWriter/Producer Elliot McGucken is taking his award winning screenplay, “The Legend of McCoy Mountain & The Gold 45 Revolver” to the silver screen, and my sources tell me as it stands, they will be shooting this flick in LA, New York and North Carolina.  I am still waiting to hear back on exactly where in NC they will be filming.  Let’s hope their plans don’t change! The movie is about Mary McCoy and her boyfriend who head on up McCoy Mountain to film the ghost of Civil War abolitionist Johnny Ranger McCoy for Mary’s Sundance documentary.  They end up finding out firsthand if Johnny’s Gold 45 Revolver really does fire lightning in the hands of heroes willing to give that last, full-measure of devotion.  Look for this production to start up in the Spring.

Remember the indie flick Riverguard that shot here this past summer?  Eric Ladin, the lead in the Wilmywood shot movie has been cast as a regular in The Brink, HBO’s pilot directed by Jay Roach from a script by Roberto Benabib and Kim Benabib and exec produced by Jerry Weintraub. The Brink is an epic dark comedy focusing on a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men: U.S. Secretary of State Walter Hollander (Tim Robbins); Alex Coppins (Jack Black), a lowly Foreign Service officer; and Zeke Callahan (Pablo Schreiber), an ace Navy fighter pilot. Ladin will play Lieutenant Glenn Taylor, Callahan’s ace wingman.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 08/08/2013 – EBD, UTD Piracy, Sleepy Hollow and more

sleepyThings are heating up on Sleepy Hollow today.  After a Police officer pulls a car over, a witch sets the car on fire and it explodes!  Okay, this show is getting fun!  They will be shooting this scene right beside Screen Gems.   Don’t forget to vote today for Wilmington to have an early screening of Sleepy Hollow! We need 140 to get into 2nd place.  I know we have more people in this town that love the film industry in this town! So, come on!  It takes less than 60 seconds to vote! The contest ends August 19th.

If you hear shots being fired in the downtown area, chances are you won’t have to worry.  It’s just Eastbound and Down downtown filming.  They will be on S. Front St, Betten Court Alley, 2nd St.  I would still duck and cover cuz lately, people are cray!

Christmas in Conway goes back for some more Ferris wheel fun on Forest Hills Drive.

River Guard is back at the courthouse on Princess St for Day 3 of the courtroom scenes. I think my favorite actor on set beside Eric Ladin, has got to be Peter Jason.  It’s really hot in the courtroom (gotta keep the AC off for sound)  Yesterday, when he took his judge’s robe off during a quick break, he was sporting a white shirt and tie with black shorts and pink shoes.  Hilarious!  He is just so fun and goofy!  Everyone LOVES him!  Also, pictured is local boy, Ben Yemba, best Bailiff ever! Ha!

under-the-dome-cbsPiracy rates are up for Under the Dome about 4% since the TWC/CBS dispute and black out in some major cities.  Wow!  That’s some dedicated fans!  “We will watch no matter the cost!”  Okay, I jest, it’s not a good thing, but is does seem like people are desperate.  Why can’t they just watch it on Hulu or CBS.com?  Anywho read the whole Variety article now!

AdrenalineI am glad WECT tweeted this because it reminded me to remind you that the folks making the movie Adrenaline have a Kickstarter campaign that has only 7 days left to raise all of their $45,000.  The film stars  John Schneider(Dukes of Hazard, Smallville) along with local boy Michael Rosander and Mike Holmes.  They’ve already shot more than 65% of the flick.  I donated about a month ago.  So, get on it!  Even if its just a couple of bucks, every bit helps! DONATE NOW!

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!
