THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/11/2013 Jill Jones, Amandla Stenberg on set of Sleepy Hollow, A Cucalorus Must See and More.

JillJonesIn case you missed it last week, Jill Marie Jones (Girlfriends) has joined the cast of Sleepy Hollow as Cynthia, the former wife of Frank Irving (Orlando Jones) and mother to their teenage daughter, Macey played by Amandla Stenberg.  (Might I add I love the fact that Jones and Jones are playing the ex married couple.)  Jill and Amandla have been in Wilmywood since last week and their debut episode airs November 25th.  Both have recurring roles, so look forward to having these two lovely ladies in town for a few weeks.  Amandla is already having a great time on set.

Let’s back up a bit and take a look at tonight’s episode, The Midnight Ride, shall we! Abbie and Ichabod look for clues to stop the evil in town; Abbie receives an unexpected visit from Andy Brooks (John Cho).

Bad_Grandpa_USAlthough Thor: The Dark World hammered the competition at the weekend box office earning $86 million in its debut, our North Carolina shot Bad Grandpa remained strong with $11.3 million. The comedy’s three-week total stands at $78.7 million.


CUCALORUSA CUCALORUS MUST SEE: Broadcast – A Man and his Dream is the story of Ralph Epperson growing up in the 1920s and 30s the son of tobacco farmers in the hills of Southwestern Virginia/Northwestern North Carolina and daring to dream of a different life. As a boy he discovered radio and from then on was led by a desire to understand how to transmit sound through the airwaves. This love of technology was coupled with a passion for the broadcast2music native to his growing up, “it was then called old time and now we call it bluegrass,” along with a strong faith in God and community. In 1948 Ralph realized his dream with the opening of his first station, WPAQ 740 AM, Mt. Airy, NC, “the voice of the Blue Ridge” but his dream didn’t stop there. Most of his family followed him out of the tobacco fields and into radio. broadcastToday more than 150 radio stations around the nation owe their beginnings to Ralph Epperson and his dream as well as countless musicians who continued their music and passed along the tradition that still exists today of Blue Ridge style string music. In 2005 Director, Jordan Nance, dared to dream that despite his physical limitations from severe cerebral palsy he could make a film about Ralph and WPAQ. Now in 2013 Jordan’s dream is a reality.

The screening will be on Sunday, Nov 17 at 10:45AM in the studio theatre at Thalian Hall. There will be live bluegrass for those who come a little early and enjoy Jones Smith & Co.

Here’s the preview!



Congrats to Claire Danes for taking home an Emmy last night for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for our North Carolina shot, Homeland.

Offices for The Remaining are officially open and the cast will come into town tomorrow as they get ready for re-shoots.  Why the re-shoots?  Well without giving anything away, they decided to make some writing changes and decided to have a better outcome with a few of the scenes.  Now, I can tell you the crew is VERY glad the show is back.  Speaking with some crew members they said that although they will be a couple of very long shoot days this week, they had a great time shooting this movie earlier this year.  They enjoyed both the young cast and director on this flick.  “They were a great group of people to work with .”  They will be shooting Wednesday through Friday this week, although some have told me just Thursday and Friday.  I will find out more details.

Offices officially open today for Bolden!  Looks as though they moved into Hub B, then we transfer to Hub D next year.  Glad to have the film back that saved so many during the housing crisis.  Yep, if you remember, this movie kept a lot of people working and stores open with its budget exceeding $100 million.  So, thank you Dan Pritzker and the rest of the crew from Bolden!

filmjobsFinally, there have been some crazy rumors and I have no idea how or where this silliness started, so let’s this straight!  The NC Film Incentives HAVE NOT been cancelled. They will not sunset!  So tell, everyone to calm their little pants down!
