THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/25/2013 Amandla Stenberg talks No Kid Hungry, Sleepy Hollow, and more.

Happy Monday!  Guess what day it is!  GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS!  Sleepy Hollow Day!!!  Woo Hoo!  On tonight’s episode, (Episode 9 “Sanctuary”) Ichabod and Abbie investigate a missing persons case and the search leads to a colonial-era house which holds secrets from Ichabod’s past…and unleashes a long-dormant evil!

Amandla+StenbergOkay that’s all good, but let’s get to the best part!  The big debut episode for Jill Marie Jones and Amandla Stenberg!  We’ve been talkin’ about them for weeks, so glad to finally see them on the small screen!  Amandla joined me on The Sunny Morning show this morning!  And let me just say she is so stinkin’ cute I wanna squeeze her til she pops!!  Hear the cuteness for yourself!  I’ve got the whole interview –  LISTEN NOW!

Tonight competing for viewers with Sleepy Hollow is CBS’ Mike & Molly which will feature three actresses that spent some time this past summer in Wilmington. Melissa McCarthy (of course), Susan Sarandon (Tammy) and Katy Mixon (Eastbound and Down).  So we will have a bit of a Wilmywood Film reunion!  Nyambi Nyambi, who is the sweetest guy and was here visiting during Tammy, tweeted.  I will try to get up with him today for more details about tonight’s episode.

Over the weekend, my friend Shaun and I took the liberty of answering a lot of questions that people have about the NC Film Incentives and film questions in general.

QUESTION: What’s the difference between North Carolina’s Film Incentives and Georgia’s?  ANSWER.

QUESTION:  Everyone is talking about a sunset when it comes to the film incentives.  What exactly is a “sunset?” ANSWER.

QUESTION: So why does North Carolina need film incentives anyway? ANSWER.

QUESTION:  What film incentives do the other states offer?  ANSWER.

QUESTION: Do the tax payers pay for police officers and fireman when used on a movie set?  ANSWER.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/22/2013 Under the Dome – Mackenzie Lintz’s Birthday call, USA Pilot comes to NC, and more.

UTDPremiere062013_0080Happy Friday!  Boy, did we have some fun this morning.  A HUGE Happy Birthday to Mackenzie Lintz who plays Norrie on Under the Dome!  She called in this morning.  Did you miss it?  LISTEN NOW!  Tweet her your b-day wishes: @MackenzieLintz

Just like Sleepy Hollow, looks like Under the Dome is changing up their shooting schedule for Season two.  Offices are still projected to open in January, but filming might not begin until March 1st.

shane coffeyIf you remember I told you about a USA pilot that would be shooting here in NC. Well, my suspicions are now solidly confirmed.  Moving across the state, that pilot is indeed the drama The Novice.  It’s from Fox 21, who also does Homeland.  They will be filming in Charlotte and the surrounding areas.  They begin production in a couple of weeks. Shane Coffey has landed the lead. He is best known for his role as Holden Strauss in ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars.  Written by Hell On Wheels creators Joe and Tony Gayton.  According to Deadline.com:

The Novice centers on Kyle (Coffey), a charming and highly intelligent recent college graduate who is forced to move back home with his parents and siblings when his job search stalls. However, after a strange quirk of fate proves oddly fortuitous, he lands a position with a Korean crime organization.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/21/2013 – Max Steel, Sleepy Hollow, and more.

Max-SteelHappy Thursday beautiful peeps!  I hope you are more rested than me!  Ha!  Let’s start with more details about Max Steel.  My sources have told me that the powers that be from Mattel Entertainment along with Open Road Films and Dolphin Films have been interviewing department-heads for this live action version of the Action SciFi TV series.    It’s looking like the budget will not exceed 20 million, more likely 10-15M.  Stewart Hendler will direct.  One of the two producers really caught my eye!  Julia Pistor.  JuliaPistorShe is a perfect fit for this find of flick as she has produced films such as The Spiderwick Chronicles, Charlott’s Web, Jimmy Neutron and Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, just to name a few!  I REALLY want to meet her!  They are slated to open offices in the next 40-60 days.  We should be hearing an announcement very soon! The feature revolves around teenager Maxwell McGrath and alien companion Steel who can combine special turbo-energy powers to generate superhero, Max Steel.

SH_necromancerSleepy Hollow has been going back and forth trying to figure out when indeed they will be coming back to Wilmywood for Season 2.  At one point they were discussing a start as early as January, but now they are looking at April/May.

BCLuxeThe company BaseCamp Luxe is holding their ribbon cutting ceremony TODAY at Screen Gems.    Media will receive special viewing of the stylish and luxurious vintage airstream trailers for use on film and television production sets. Congrats to Anne Wilson and Marybeth Bankson on their business. They look gorgeous!
