Wilmywood shot ‘The Squeeze’ gets a release date.

ARC Entertainment has acquired all North American rights to the golf caper, The Squeeze which was shot right here in Wilmywood in the fall of 2013.

The feature stars Christopher McDonald, Jeremy Sumpter, Jillian Murray and Michael Nouri, along with some of our local actors including Michael Rosander, David Andrews, and Logan Siu to name a few.

ARC Entertainment will be releasing The Squeeze on premium VOD and in select markets in 12 top markets in the U.S. on April 17, 2015 (Friday after The Masters).

The Squeeze is a true story about a young man from a small southern town who gets caught in between two notorious gamblers, until the stakes become a matter of life or death. The film has been submitted to the Toronto Film Festival in September.

According to a press release, Jack Nicklaus, Winner of 18 Major Golf Championship really enjoyed the movie.  “I watched THE SQUEEZE and really enjoyed it. It’s a fun movie that tells an interesting story, and the golf elements are so real you actually believe it could happen.”

The Squeeze was produced by Anne Archer, Terry Jastrow, Brian McCormack, Michael Doven, and George Parra and executive produced by Brian McCormack, Simon Horsman and Milton Kim.

‘The Squeeze’ to hit theaters Spring 2015

Writer/Producer/Director Terry Jastrow has just announced the completion of the Wilmywood shot feature film, The Squeeze. The golf caper which filmed here last fall stars Christopher McDonald, Jeremy Sumpter, Jillian Murray and Michael Nouri, along with some of our local actors including Michael Rosander, David Andrews, and Logan Siu to name a few.

The Squeeze is a true story about a young man from a small southern town who gets caught in between two notorious gamblers, until the stakes become a matter of life or death. The film has been submitted to the Toronto Film Festival in September.

According to a press release, Jastrow recently had its first industry private screening at United Talent Agency in Hollywood to an enthusiastic audience that included film distributors, cast and crew, Terry’s wife and co-producer, actress Anne Archer, and golfer Phil Mickelson.

“Making this movie is a dream come true,” says Jastrow. “For many years as a sports director working for the legendary Roone Arledge, I was schooled in the art of storytelling…’the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat, the human drama of athletic competition’…and am very pleased to apply those concepts now to movie making.”

Look for The Squeeze in theaters this Spring.

Local Actor Nabs Opening Scene in “Last Vegas” OJ Takes You on a Set Tour, Conjuring #1 Again!

Tonight you can go see one of our local actors in the flick with some of the most legendary actors. Josh Cohen got the amazing opportunity to land a role in Last Vegas, which opens in theaters today!

josh cohenJosh says it’s a small part in the first scene of the movie, but that is HUGE if you ask me.  What actor wouldn’t love to be in the opening scene of a movie with the caliber of actors cast in this flick!  But, yes, he is being appropriately humble.  So in the opening scene we go straight to a flashback to 1950’s Brooklyn.  Josh plays Jimmy,  the head greaser.  “The young Robert De Niro, young Morgan Freeman, young Kevin Kline, and Young Michael Douglas are causing trouble in my buddy’s general store, said Josh. “My two greaser friends and I walk in to see our friend Danny, the shipowners son, on the floor. The kids then try to steal a bottle of Josh Cohen_runalcohol and run out of the store while we chase them.  I’m the first one to call the kids out for why my buddy is lying on the floor.  It was a great experience.”

Josh has some stories to tell including how he got the gig and a hilarious story with he and Kevin Kline in the make up trailer.  LISTEN NOW!

I spoke with Johnny Griffin with the Wilmington Film Commission, and he said that there was no ranking order for the Top Film Locations Worldwide, it was in alphabetical order.  Good!  I didn’t like being #9!  So hell yeah!  Love making that top ten list!  That is HUGE!

ConjuringThe Conjuring takes the top spot debuting at #1 on both DVD and Blu-Ray charts!  According to Nielsen research, of its first-week sales, 33 percent were on Blu-ray Disc.

The Squeeze is shooting downtown again today at 128 S. Front St and on the street on the 400 block of S. 2nd St.  They are going to have 5 of the cast members on set.  And say good bye to the beautiful Jillian Murray she heads back home today! (unless weather makes her stay for another day of shooting).

Haven’t had the chance to see the set of Sleepy Hollow.  No Worries.  Orlando Jones personally takes you.  Check out one of his WhoSay videos.  Pretty damn hilarious!

The NC Film Incentives are still on the minds of many.  Here is a glimpse of an article from the Star News.

Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker said she supports tools to grow the film industry in North Carolina, but added that top state officials are “evaluating what our options are and looking freshly at it (the film incentive).”   Decker has generally been a supporter of the state’s film incentive but is working behind the scenes to build a consensus with state officials and film industry leaders. “We are looking under every rock and at all the options,” Decker told the Star News. “The big question on the table is, ‘How do we continue to help this industry grow in the state?’ I think it’s very clear when you look at it financially that there will have to be some changes in what we might continue to do.”  READ THE ARTICLE NOW!
