WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 08/22/2013 Mystery celebrity revealed, Wilmywood wins Sleepy Hollow early screening

sleepyhollowWe did it!   Wilmington along with New York and Chicago are getting an advance screening of FOX’s Sleepy Hollow.  The show airs on Fox September 16th, but we get to see it this Tuesday, August 27th at Mayfaire’s Regal Cinemas!  Our lovely lady from WECT/WSFX Ashlea Kosikowski will host the event.  Perfect choice! Go hot mama go!  I’ll let you know about tickets later today.  If you spot police cars coming and going on near the 200 block if N. 5th St today, chances are it’s just Sleepy Hollow filming as they are doing some police work within the scene they are shooting.

There was a big buzz on the set of Eastbound and Down yesterday, the final day for EBD.  Sacha Baron Cohen graced us with his presence, well on the lot anyway.  He was here for the past few days.  I wonder if he actually got to see a ‘lil of Wilmywood besides the lot?  Hope so.  The gang has moved on to Charlotte.  But before Danny McBride left Wilmywood, he did say he hopes to bring more projects here.  Um, Loomis Fargo w/ Jim Carrey and Owen Wilson, perhaps!  After all he and Jody Hill did write and the word remains, they are looking at early 2014.

SNOW DAY!  Yesterday Christmas in Conway turned into Christmas in August as a wonderful holiday scene was shot with plenty of snow!  The gang was back at the ferris wheel location in Forest Hills and from what I heard, it was a very touching scene between Andy Garcia and Mary Louise Parker.  There were a lot of background extras and I heard a lot of hot Firemen.  Ha!  Kudos to the actors and background for staying pleasant while wearing their winter wear with the weather in the 80s.  (Kinda like working on Sleepy Hollow perhaps?)

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 – 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: Dream comes true for Set PA on Eastbound and Down

What’s it like to work with Lindsay Lohan after her stint in rehab? To quote Poison, it’s “nothing but a good time” on the set of Eastbound and Down with Lindsay Lohan and True Blood’s Alex Skarsgard.  I’ve had a ton of emails and messages asking me how Lindsay was on set.  So, I went to one of my sources and asked.

LISTEN TO THE SCOOP NOW!

Dream comes true for Set PA on Eastbound and Down

But the best was one of the greatest stories to come form set.  Word has it that a crew member got bumped from Set PA to the luckiest guy in the world.  Apparently this guy is a great asset and everyone loves him.  So how do you thank the guy who does everything for you 16 hours a day?  You get rid of his Duck Dynasty beard, make him all pretty, and put him in a scene with Lindsay Lohan.  Oh yeah,  and grant him the wish of kissing her, too!  In the scene (which I will not reveal) he got the opportunity to kiss her a good 6 times.  So, the question is, “Is Lindsay a good kisser?”  Well according to my sources, let’s just say the man had a smile the size of Manhattan in between takes.  Thank you Danny McBride for booking her and making dreams come true!  The gang is filming on the stage today at Screen Gems as well as The Carolinian on Market in Wilmington, NC.

I will have the full report in a few.  Stand by.  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 – 08/15/2013 LINDSAY LOHAN IS IN TOWN!

Lindsey Lohan

Well, I was gonna be quiet about it, but TMZ per their usual sneakiness just leaked the news. Lindsey Lohan is in town for a stint on Eastbound and Down.  SPOILER ALERT: She is playing the adult version of Kenny’s illegitimate daughter on the season and series finale.

TMZ reports there could be a spin-off based on her character in EBD Season 4…saying: “It’s a pretty big opportunity for Lindsay — her first real acting gig since she left rehab — because if she’s funny, a spin-off could be in the cards. Crazier things have happened.”

So what is like to be with her on set?  Yesterday, my sources said she was really nice to everyone and is happy to be back in the acting world.  I am actually really excited she is here because I am pulling for her to get her career back on track.  I think I have watched Mean Girls like 100 times!

Alexander Skarsgard

And if that is not enough, guess who else is in town?  If you’re a True Blood fan, you will love to know Mr. Hotness Alexander Skarsgard will be on set today as well!  Eastbound has pulled out all the stops when it comes to cameos this season!  A huge scene is supposed to go down on Eastbound and Down in Castle Hayne this afternoon, weather permitting.

Our gorgeous local boy, Dominic Santana is back in the local ET news.  Or more like BET news!  Huge congrats are in order as Dominic will continue his stint on the second season of the comedy, The Game.  “I’m looking forward to what BET may have in store for me and representing Wilmington film.”   Production starts back up in October.  Love that man!  He gives the BEST hugs!  Congrats Dom!

As far as filming goes today, the weather is not helping. Christmas in Conway is supposed to back on Forest Hills Drive.

sleepyhollowSleepy Hollow is in luck as they are shooting in Atkinson today.  Hopefully the weather will hold out for them.  We are in 2nd place.  Let’s try to take over New York and reach the #1 spot to ensure our early screening of Sleepy Hollow!  We need 100 votes to reach #1 VOTE NOW and VOTE EVERY DAY.

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.

Town leaders in Boiling Spring Lakes are examining their filming rules and are considering new ordinance changes.  It would establish guidelines for productions who want to shoot in Boiling Spring Lakes.  If it gets the greenlight, the town would force production companies to pay a $25,000 deposit.  WECT reports, “The town manager says the thought is to draft an ordinance which would make the rules similar to places like Southport and Wilmington.”

Eastbound and Down head to Thalian Hall for the day.
