An Evening with Molly Ringwald (TICKETS)
Wednesday, September 17
7 p.m., Kenan Auditorium
Film icon Molly Ringwald is celebrated for her acting work in critically acclaimed, rite-of-passage movies. However, long before she became a Golden Globe-nominated actress, Ringwald was singing. She began performing with her father’s jazz band when she was three and has never stopped. Now, she kicks off our exciting season with her crowd-pleasing concert, “An Evening with Molly Ringwald.” She returns to her roots as a singer, performing a flavorsome arrangement of jazz songs from her album, Except Sometimes.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 08/07/2014 The Politics of Film, TMNT Throwback, Sleepy Hollow and more.

Darkness, they say, has settled over New York City, however, the lights dimmed first at our very own EUE/Screen Gems as Shredder and his evil minions had their way.  As we gear up for the reboot in theaters this week for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, we in Wilmington feel a lot pride pride knowing if if wasn’t for our turtles the box office would be eager for some other movie to hit theaters this weekend.

TMNT_Jimmie1

So, a perfect throw back Thursday for some TMNT love.  Thanks to stunt man Jimmie Lee Sessoms (left TMNT II / 1990) for the photos from TMNT and of course the second one, Secret of the Ooze. Now, Hunter over at the Star News did an amazing article you MUST read.  It takes you back with the local crew members who worked on it including Robbie Beck and Jeff Goodwin.  READ NOW.

Secrets & Lies heads to Masonboro Baptist Church Cemetery.

It’s day 38 of 46 for The Longest Ride and they are back at the Coliseum today in Winston-Salem.

THE POLITICS OF FILM – UPDATE:  Well more like, what’s happening Under our Dome.  Yesterday, a skeleton session for the House did what we expected, they adjourned as soon as they convened.  And it looks like they will do it again– Thursday at 9:30 a.m for The Senate and Sunday at 4:30 p.m for the House. They will return, Thursday, August 14th for a full session.  This is when they would take on 763, IF they decide to. Let’s hope so.  That being said, they can do just about anything between now and then.  We don’t want them to kick the can on 763 to November like they want to do with Medicaid.  It’s impossible, but unlikely.  There is too much at stake with 763 and what’s in it.

Since yesterday, we have learned:

Art Pope is resigning as the NC Budget Director and Cokie Roberts’ son Lee will take his place.  Pope leaves Sept. 5th.  If you remember, Pope said he would be the budget director for one year for the cost of $1.  His one year term is up. READ MORE

Also, read Ben Brown’s overview of Lee Roberts over at the News & Observer.

Although Sen. Bill Rabon voted in favor of taking out the film incentive extension language and tax credits for historic preservation from 763 last week, he now says he still favors the inclusion of film incentives. [STATE PORT PILOT]

Most folks think Michael Lee will take Thom Goolsby’s Senate seat, even though there are other unnamed folks also in consideration.  We will find out more details on Tuesday.

Heather Lind ‘Turns’ to Wilmywood as Ichabod’s Ex.

So earlier this week we discovered that we will be meeting an old flame of Ichabod Crane.  Oooh, nice rhyming rhythm that has.  Well, as Sleepy Hollow gears up for episode five, we can safely tell you it is Heather Lind of AMC’s Turn fame that will guest star as Mary Wells, an ex ball and chain of  Ichabod Crane (wow, did it again) before he traveled across the pond to the good old US of A.

While she appears all innocent and sweet, TV LINE says, “Mary has a darker side — and will prove to be flighty, moody and prone to fits of extreme jealousy.”

Since our Sleepyheads are working on episode 4, we should see this lovely lady arriving any day now!  Welcome to the Wilmywood family Heather!

WILMYWOOD_READHEARWATCH_BLOG

Morning my beautiful peeps! Hope your Tuesday is as delicious as a cream-filled crepe with blueberry sauce! Sorry, I’m hungry. Let’s get started!
shanley copyATTENTION Ashley High School students!  Major hotness alert for today! Shanley Caswell, Stefanie Scott, and David Castro will be roaming the halls today at your school!  No, they won’t be interfering with your classes, unfortunately.  But you might catch a glimpse this afternoon!

the-originalsTONIGHT! Our North Carolina girl, Alexa Yeames will be on CW’s The Originals tonight as well as our Wilmington boy Jesse C Boyd. Alexa is playing Abigail and Jesse is playing Cary, Klaus’ distant werewolf relative. Both have done 3 episodes so far.

ChrisannVergesCongrats to Chrisann Verges.  She is officially the Line Producer on FX’s How & Why. Chrisann (pictured on left) is known for End of Watch (2012), Cyrus (2010), Valkyrie (2008) and her most recent stint as producer for HBO’s Silicon Valley which airs April 6th.  Welcome to Wilmywood Chrisann!

RumorslogoAnd finally some Rumors from the Lot. Got more news about Loomis Fargo, but it might not be news you wanna hear.  Now I definitely cannot confirm this, but I heard that Loomis Fargo is headed to Winston-Salem.  That would make sense since it will star our NC boy Zach Galifianakis. We will keep you posted if we hear otherwise.

EP Jack BenderPRODUCER/DIRECTOR JACK BENDER JOINS US ON THE SUNNY MORNING SHOW TOMORROW!   Tune in @ 8:30am during “What’s Up in Wilmywood” on Sunny 104.5 . We’ll be chatting about all things Dome and of course about his art exhibit. The Wilma W. Daniels Gallery (200 Hanover St.) is  showcasing Under the Dome’s Jack Bender’s art NOW through the 29th of this month.  Three of his pieces will be from Season One  of Under the Dome.  Think Pink Stars!  We will also get a sneak peek at some of the beautiful pieces for the upcoming season. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday 12pm-5pm.  However, a special night is reserved for you to mingle with the artist that is Jack Bender this Saturday, March 22nd from 6pm-9pm.

Meanwhile, the Domies head out to Chestnut Street to film today.

kevin-sizemoreThis Friday, our favorite Domie, Kevin Sizemore will join us on The Sunny Morning Show.   He will be on ABC’s Resurrection this Sunday and guess who else is popping up?  Well, when asked, he said “I think it’s this Sunday.”  LOL.  Remember Reverend Lester Coggins of Under the Dome?  It’s Ned Bellamy.  So we got some Wilmywood love on the Georgia shot show, based on the book The Returned by our Bolton, North Carolina boy Jason Mott.

Now onto Sleepy Hollow.  My sources are telling me that  offices are slowly opening over the next week as they gear up for season two.  Yesterday, our adorable Sleepy Writers tweeted a pic from the writers room.  Did you spot our new  producer/writer Albert Kim in the back!  He’s pumped to be on the show.

And can we thank Orlando Jones and Tom Mison enough for spreading some North Carolina Love!?  Stars promoting tourism.

Hold on, let me get this straight.  A show films here, brings in a ton a revenue, buys from a lot of local small businesses, create 100s of jobs, and the stars promote tourism, encouraging fans to visit?  Wow, this industry is horrible!  Shut it down immediately! Okay, I’m done. ::::wipes sarcasm from lips:::::

filmjobsLOOKING FOR THOSE FILM=JOB STICKERS? Sunrise Broadcasting has a few.  Feel free to stop by and grab you one while they last at 25 N. Kerr Ave. (near the intersection of Market and Kerr across from the new Walgreens). Offices are open from 8:30am-5:30pm M-F.  Please one sticker per person please.  They will run out fast!  Thanks!
