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.

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 07/23/2013, UTD, EBD, SH and more from the rumor mill!

It’s numbers day once again for Under the Dome.  We will find out the overnight ratings by 11 or 11:30am EST.  I, of course, will post them along with reviews and thoughts from the press and critics as well in a separate blog later today.  And I will keep you posted about Season 2.  Word is the crew will find out this week if they return to work and when!  The UTD folks are shooting the final episode this week.  They film on the lot for the day on Sound Stages 7 & 8.

YES!  Wilmington is in the TOP 7!  Yesterday we weren’t even on the radar.  BUT we need to be in the top 3!  DEMAND an early screening on the locally filmed Sleepy Hollow.  Sleepy Hollow will kick off the episode two shoot this weekend in New Bern.

Eastbound and Down is back to Jellybeans today with about 50 extras skatin’ around having fun.

The Hallmark TV Movie Christmas in Conway is looking for a photo double for  for this lovely and talented actress, Mary Louise Parker. You must have the same coloring and measurements and be available the month of August. She is 5’8 ” and weighs 120lbs.Her measurements are 34/24/33.  Please send a recent photo (head and bodyshot) to wimingtonbackground@gmail.com include your sizes and contact info. Please put MLP photodbl in subject.


WECT brought the Angelina Jolie movie, Unbroken up again.  Although, I reported this movie’s interest in Wilmington about two months ago, they have added that Jack O’Connell will play Louis Zamperini, the Olympian turned POW.  My sources tell me that they REALLY like Hawaii, but hopefully they will see that North Carolina has way more to offer and is more cost effective!  Thanks for reporting this Ashlea!

And speaking of maybes remember when I brought up Loomis Fargo months ago! What light can we shed on bank heist movie?  The Jim Carrey flick (that has been in “pre-production”) for months now supposedly here in Wilmywood has attached another actor to its roster.  Looks like Owen Wilson will join in on the bank robbing in this comedy flick.  On a sidenote, Danny McBride and Jody Hill are two of the writers on this movie.  I’m thinkin’ a rollover here!  Just stay here and keep filming! Eastbound Film Crew can roll over as well!  My sources are telling me they have been some verbals hires, but I cannot confirm that.  Yet anyway!  Hopefully that is their plan with Relativity Media!

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 04/12/13 – Nicholas Sparks, Jim Carrey, Lorne Michaels headed to Wilmywood?



Lots of exciting news today!  First things first, however.  Under the Dome will be filming later today on 15th St and also on the lot. They are shooting some interior scenes, so not too much to see as a bystander.


Okay, I can’t take it anymore!  Gotta dish the latest rumors!  First, Nights in Rodanthe, then Safe Haven and now it looks as though our New Bern native, Nicholas Sparks, is returning for the drama/romance, The Best of Me.  The adaptation dives into the lives of  a pair of former high school sweethearts who reunite after many years when they return to visit their small hometown.   The brilliant and beautiful Denise DiNovi is set to produce. Michael Hoffman is in talks to direct.  Loving the love, Nicholas!  Thank you for sticking with your hometown posse!

The excitement continues even though there is a bit of a delay.  Yes, Christmas will have to wait as Loomis Fargo has been pushed to August.  Jim Carrey stars in this comedy flick about a night guard at an armored car company in the Southern U.S. who organizes one of the biggest bank heists in American history.  Interestingly enough, one of the screenwriters is Danny McBride who is currently hanging out were in Wilmywood shooting his HBO show, Eastbound and Down.  Other notable players attached are Lorne Michaels (Producer) and Jody Hill (screenwriter for Eastbound and Down).  Jared Hess will direct.  Loomis Fargo is looking for a release date in 2014.

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you Monday morning and every morning (Monday-Friday) at 8:30am on Sunny 104.5.  Until then, that’s a wrap!
