WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 08/20/2013 Heart of the Country, Lindsay Lohan, Sleepy Hollow and More.

sleepyhollowVoting ended for the advance screening for Sleepy Hollow last night!  Hopefully we did it.  I will keep you posted!  The gang is shooting in Currie NC today.

Christmas in Conway is back in Forest Hills and Eastbound and Down is on the lot today.

Word has it, Lindsay Lohan is still in town.  Although she was wrapped by the weekend, she simply loves it here!  She was in Marsh Oaks yesterday as they were filming a scene there.  Can’t say I blame her, Wilmywood is pretty damn awesome.

If you remember, Heart of the Country shot here last year.  The movie is out on DVD and On Demand today.  The movie was written and directed by Wilmington’s own John Ward.  It stars Jana Kramer and Gerald McRaney.  Our lovely Sydney Penny also joins the cast.  Sydney is also the co-producer.  Marty Siu did the extras casting, plus, a lot of great local crew members were on this flick.  The storyline: “With her husband jailed for Wall Street fraud, Faith leaves her life of luxury behind to return to rural North Carolina and the father and sister she’d left behind. A love between a father and his daughter, it parallels the famous parable, ‘The Prodigal Son’.”  ~IMDB

We will see how last night’s episode of Under the Dome fared in the ratings last night with the overnight numbers coming in around 11:30am EST.  I will update the blog when they come in.

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 05/09/2013 Red Dead Dedemption, Fox’s Wild Blue, CFIFF and more



Lots of little tidbits and reminders today!  Let’s start with some star sightings.  This time was at Mayfaire.  The stars got a chance to get off the set any enjoy some of Wilmington’s finer things.  Like food!  We gotta add Roko Italian Cuisine to the list of restaurants in Wilmington where Hollywood dines.  Both Melissa McCarthy and Dan Aykroyd, who are here shooting the comedy, Tammy, dined there this week.  Tammy is shooting once again on Nun St.

Okay, moving on.  Under the Dome is back in Burgaw.  IMG_4108The Perfect Summer is in Carolina Beach again – just interior shots,  so no star gazing today.  Had to throw in this pic from yesterday.  Looks like our local surfer, Tony Silvagni  and Eric Roberts are best buds since the shoot yesterday.  Tony is Eric’s surf double in the movie.

Today is the last day to see Arthur Newman in theaters, so make your plans to head to Carmike Cinemas for this limited release!  (check Tuesday’s blog post for showtimes).

I haven’t said much about the Fox Network’s Wild Blue in a while mainly because there is not much going on.  My sources tell me the production has been pushed back.  Actually quite a few productions have, including Eastbound and Down.  From what I am hearing one reason for the delay is that the crew is all working on other productions.  I suppose now’s a great time to get into the field, if that is what your passion is!  SEE LATEST BREAKING NEWS ABOUT WILD BLUE HERE. Wild Blue stars Mykelti Williamson (Bubba of Forrest Gump) as Master Chief Donald Bowman along with Josh SalatinWill RothhaarAlano Miller and Gina Rodriguez.

I will be interviewing Rob Wiethoff, the voice of JOHN MARSTON on the video game, Red Dead Redemption.  He will be among the many attending Port City Pop Con this weekend at the Wilmington Convention center.  His interview will be up later today (or tomorrow). Get your tickets now!  Meet cast members of The Walking Dead, Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson, Dee Wallace, Margot Kidder, Noah Hathaway (Atreyu in the Neverending Story), Hank and Jed Movie Pictures (creators/cast members of Battlefield  Friends and Doraleous & Associates) and so many more!

The 13th Annual Cape Fear Independent Film Festival begins today and it includes the screening of Heart of the Country, starring Gerald McRaney, and Jana Kramer. It  was shot here last year. For a complete schedule of events, head to http://cfifn.org.
