CORRECTION: UPDATED: WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 05/28/2013 What a weekend!

12:27PM: SLEEPY HOLLOW UPDATED – SCROLL TO BOTTOM FOR ALL THE DETAILS!

Wow! So much to talk about over the weekend! It seems like the Wilmington area was the place to be for sports stars. Especially Wrightsville Beach. If you missed my blogs over the weekend, I reported that Jonathan Stewart, super star running back for the Carolina Panthers, was hanging out at our beach for the weekend. He arrived on Friday and let everyone know with a tweet: @Jonathanstewar1: “I’m out here in wrightsville/”willmington” beach for Memorial Day weeknd enjoying the nice weather! #holla#northcarolina.”

michaelphelps_instagram2Okay, so he can’t spell Wilmington, but hey we love him anyway, $10 says it was his damn auto-correct.  But Jonathan wasn’t the only superstar. Olympic swimmer, Michael Phelps was here too! In fact last night he was spotted at the Carolina Yacht Club in Wrightsville Beach.  He is reportedly dating the GORGEOUS Carolina Yacht Club member, Win McMurry, On-air Reporter for the Golf Channel. Phelps confirmed it with a tweet: @MichaelPhelps  #mdw USA there’s no better country!! @ Carolina Yacht Club http://instagram.com/p/Z1dDItSx1L/

There were other star sightings over the weekend. While I cannot confirm this, I was told that Mr. Oprah aka Stedman Graham was at Figure 8. No mention of Miss Winfrey however.

On a sad note, as we all geared up and got pumped for Sleepy Hollow, it seems as though their final decision has the production going to Charleston, SC. Booo! But hey, it does leave more room for productions to come in! Say, maybe like an Angelina Jolie flick!!  If you missed the huge A-List scoop, I have two confirmed reports about Angelina Jolie’s people scouting Wilmington for the upcoming movie, Unbroken, which she is directing. For complete details, check the full post on that story below.

Now back to the present! Under the Dome will be on stage for the day.  The good folks of Tammy are back in Wilmywood today. Things are already underway at the New Hanover Correctional Center then making a company move to N. 4th St. If you are a Dan Aykroyd fan, today is his last day on set. Booo! We will miss you Dan! At least we still get some more time with Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon! They are on set today as well.

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every weekday morning at 8:30am LIVE on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Until then, that’s a wrap!

ATTENTION!  UPDATE:  My sources tell me that SLEEPY HOLLOW is coming to Wilmywood after all.  There was a mix up of information with another TV series, a CBS show entitled, Reckless, that starts shooting in Charleston in July.  They shot the Pilot in Charleston back in February.  They originally shot a TV movie, then spun it into a TV series.  Although South Carolina jumped on the “incentives bandwagon,”  they weren’t strong enough to grab hold of the Fox series.  So, as it stands Sleepy Hollow is still projected to come here.  Yay!

Kim Stewart – Casting

Yay!  It’s Friday!  And a three-day weekend at that!  I would first like to give kudos to Kim, our Film Peep of the Day, and her choice in Wilmywear! Okay let’s go Under the Dome.  They are getting a very late start today, shooting at 4pm and going until early Saturday morning in Currie, NC.

tammy_wilmywoodThe Tammy cast and crew is filming on Wilmington St. and N Walker St. in Burgaw today.  A very funny scene.  Let’s just say there are cops involved!  They will also be be shooting on the road as well.  You will get a glimpse of Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon.  Plus, our lovely, local and talented gal, Barbara Weetman, has a part in this scene!

Wilmington/Clinton hometown boy, Chris McCullen, is competing in the premiere episode of TNT’s 72 HOURS airing Thursday, June 6, at 9 pm (ET/PT) on TNT, throws Chris into icy blue waters of the Yasawa Islands in Fiji.  Chris was born in Clinton, NC, but spent most of his life in the Wilmington area. He moved to San Diego to pursue his dance dreams and since has created a style of dance that teaches people how to dance to electronic music.  Good Luck Chris!

72 Hours literally DROPS you into the wild as they release nine strangers in exotic locations with nothing but a bottle of water and a GPS tracking device. In teams of three, they have just 72 hours to navigate the wilderness against treacherous terrain in a race to be the first to find a hidden briefcase filled with the $100,000 Grand Prize!!
