THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/19/2013 We’re the Millers DVD, John Leonetti, Basecamp Luxe and more!

Good Tuesday Morning!  How about a fist bump for last night’s  Sleepy Hollow!  I will have the ratings report later today after 11am for the Necromancer.  The folks are shooting downtown at St. James Church on S. 3rd St.  Not too much sightseeing as they will be doing interiors today.

Gotta give some major kudos to DP John Leonetti.  He’s been working on Sleepy Hollow, but before that he was also DP on our smash hit supernatural flick, The Conjuring.  Now my sources have told me he has made the leap to director for The Conjuring 2!  Even though we are a tad sad it is not shooting here, congrats John!  Your crew members have deemed you one of the greatest guys to work with!

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.

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!

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.
