WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 04/26/2013 Another MEGA STAR rolls into town and more.



where-the-devil-hides_608x900Wanted to thank Robin who sent me this info because we had a lot of local cast and crew work on this one.  We have some updates on the flick,  “Where the Devil Hides” aka “The Occult” and “The Devil’s Rapture“.  Now that it has finally settled on a title, we can tell you that it also has a release date.  It’s slated to premiere on October 11th.  Alycia Debnam-Carey,  Rufus Sewell, Thomas McDonell, Adelaide Kane, Leah Pipes and Jennifer Carpenter star.

The big battle has ended.  Iron Man 3 will be playing at Mayfaire Regal Cinemas following a deal reached between Disney and Regal Entertainment Group.  I was asked if anyone in our local film community was upset by this.  Well, I cannot speak for all, but the consensus I guess was neutral. It was simply water cooler talk.

I was told this isn’t anything new.  Sony pulled this when the original Spiderman came out.  They announced they wanted more money and a theater company was so upset that they tried to pull advance screening and ticket sales.  Ultimately the studio won the battle.  Disney was kinda doing the same thing and as predicted Regal caved because, hell, they can’t afford to miss out on the money.  Inside sources told me, the battle between Regal and Disney was that Disney wanted 15% more of the ticket price.  In most circumstances, movie theaters make anywhere from 20-50 cents per tickets sold depending on the film…hence why concessions cost so much.

Now, back to the excitement of Tammy!  I told you last week Melissa McCarthy rolled into town, well you can now add Susan Sarandon to the list!  Yep, she is here, so restaurants, get ready to swoon her in to your establishments.  FYI, she likes long walks on the beach, animal rights and kids.

When is Dan Aykroyd, Toni Collette and Kathy Bates coming into town?  Check back, I will let you know very very soon.  (that’s called a tease).  There are tons of extras casting opportunities with this flick – visit the Extras Casting Director’s Page for details.

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 live on Sunny 104.5.  Got scoop?  email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Until then, that’s a wrap!
