WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 08/01/2013 UTD, Sleepy Hollow, We’re The Millers and more.

At first I thought I was going to have a very weird day not reporting where Under the Dome was shooting, but thanks to the rain, I get to hold on to that one more time!

They are having a bit of a crisis.  It seems as though the cast and crew are competing for space with the creatures of the night.  Under the Dome has pushed their shoot not only because fo the rain but also because these flying rodents are everywhere.  100s of them.  I have to say though the Ideal Cement Factory is an Ideal place for a bat cave.  I would totally live there if I was a bat!

Here’s what’s in store for us Monday night on CBS!

The gorgeous Andy Garcia joins the cast of Christmas in Conway!! Somebody get me a personal meeting stat cuz oh my goodness!!!!  Also joining Mary Louise Parker is the returning Mandy Moore.  She has walked Wilmywood’s street before in “The Walk to Remember” back in 2002.  Nice memories 🙂

Sleepy Hollow is finally coming back to Wilmington from their long nights in New Bern.  They are looking for several “detective types” and “city hall types” for filming this Monday.  They are looking for both male and females between the ages of 25-65.  For more details, visit Sleepy Hollow’s casting FB page.

Don’t forget to VOTE for Wilmington to get an early screening of FOX’s Sleepy Hollow! We need about 100 votes to stay ahead of the game today!  Chicago is catching up to us!!

It’s Christmas in…well August for Eastbound and Down as they head over to the Icehouse.  Poor Danny is going to kill himself before this season wraps!  Let’s hope is better at ice skating than roller skating.  I can picture him playing hockey, can’t you?  After some chilly fun, they will can be seen throughout the Ogden area.  Some Caroling, maybe?

Heads up! I am gonna have tickets to see We’re the Millers that was shot right here in Wilmywood.  It opens Tuesday at Carmike Cinemas!  Tune in to Sunny 104.5 at 8:30am to win!

filmjobsAlso, I will be at Carolina BBQ (Murrayville Station location) tomorrow from 11am-1pm for our 1st stop to raise money for the upcoming Sunny 104.5 Caring For Kids at NHRMC Radiothon.  I will be passing out those “Film=Jobs” stickers!  So come on out and see me!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 07/05/2013

 

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July.  Where were the stars celebrating? Well, wherever Eastbound and Down cast members celebrated, they got an extended weekend.  They won’t be shooting until Monday on Fremont St.  The Under the Dome folks are shooting in Burgaw today.  Rachelle LeFevre spent her time in Wrightsville Beach.  She was looking for someone with a boat.  Hopefully she found someone!  Other cast members also had a great time on the 4th.

John Elvis (who plays Ben) was also out with the crazy kids! They spent their time pretty much all over Wilmington! There’s still a lot of questions about how the dome works.  So, here’s what we know so far.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 07/03/2013 – Short and Sweet

A slow day, thank goodness!  Sorry, was that selfish?  I swear I need an intern!

232323232%7Ffp43799)nu=4 );79)233)WSNRCG=36 3 3(48;324nu0mrjThe big news is, of course, the ratings for Monday night’s Under the Dome.  Episode 2 pulled in 11.8 million viewers after all was said and done, this time being #1 in its time slot!  A call for Season two can’t be far away.  Locations today will be Chestnut St. and the 6th St. Bridge.

Expect some intermittent road closures during the Chestnut St. shoot between 17th and 19th as well as 18th St. between Princess and Grace.

Also intermittent road closures for the bridge shot on Campbell between 5th and 7th, Redcross between 5th and 7th and on 6th between Campbell and Walnut

Once they flip their cameras, on Brunswick between 5th and 7th, Bladen between 5th and 7th and on 6th between Brunswick and Harnett.

WF_ad-donateAfter the airing of Episode 2, the fabulous Rachelle LeFevre tweeted, “4 Arizona’s lost firefighters & due 2 theme of tonight’s Under The Dome I’m donating 2 Wildland Firefighter Foundation.”  I hope she sparked a good fire in people’s hearts to do the same.

Eastbound and Down heads back to the Cameron Arts Museum today.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 6/28/2013

Big questions and many of them from Monday night’s premiere of Under the Dome.  Perhaps this is the one I have heard the most: “Why don’t they just dig their way out?!”  That question will be answered this Monday night.  The people of Chester’s Mill are shooting at the old cement factory in Castle Hayne.

So what is the cast talking about?

Nicholas StrongNicholas Strong @NicholasStrong – Thanks to our crew who keep us moving along & on schedule #Underthedome We love you and your effort is always appreciated!   
.
Mackenzie Lintz Mackenzie Lintz ‏@mackenzielintz – Absolutely LOVING all these storm clouds here in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina!
.
.
dean norrisdean norris ‏@deanjnorris – Spectacular, scary awesome lightning storm at Wrightsville beach. I MEAN BEAUTIFUL Thank god DOMA gone, cause I wanna f***ing marry you.

MULLET ALERT:  Danny McBride and his Eastbound and Down crew are staying out of the rain, shooting on the lot again today.
scottparksOn to the local front of filmmaking.  The short film, “Disposable Generation” is looking for extras tonight through Sunday.  The cast includes some great local actors including Devin Mcgee, Scott Parks (Vampire Diaries), Tara Williams, Zach Pappas, and Ashleigh Lineberry.  They are in need of 25 extras aged 18-30 for the weekend for a house party scene.  This  exploratory short narrative “meanders through a handful of arrogant, hollow Gen-Y’ers as they navigate their inherited anxieties, their layered philosophies, and ultimately, their excuses to carry on as they are.”  If you are available, email rejaccard@me.com with the subject like : “TDG -extra”.  This is a nopay gig, but know that you are supporting local filmmakers!

UC_Poster_1_copy.largeAlso handsome local boys, Dominic Santana and Chaysen Beacham, are asking for your support with their project, The U.C.  They have 13 days to go on their kickstarter for this police drama. “With the fall of criminal organizations another rises in it’s place. To counteract this this recurring problem, the FBI sanctions a classified experiment to raise one headed by their own U.C. and controlling major crime. (Under Cover)”

BREAKING NEWS: NBC GIVES REVOLUTION SEASON TWO GREENLIGHT!

NBC Renews 5 Dramas including Revolution

Christmas comes early folks~!  We got ourselves a season two!  And if all goes according to what my sources tell me, it will come back to Wilmington.  I sure hope they are right!  I asked cast member Tim Guinee his thoughts and he said, “Over the moon about it.  I’m really grateful that the hardest working cast and crew in the business is getting another shot.  Yay ILM!”

Read the entire article from The Hollywood Reporter – “From J.J. Abrams‘ Bad Robot and Warner Bros. TV, Revolution ranks as NBC’s top scripted drama across all of primetime — averaging more than 6 million viewers in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic.”

The story continues as they link part of Revolution’s success to having The Voice as a lead-in on Monday nights this season.  Regardless of coming back from a mid-season break slightly down in the numbers, they say it is still very much a success for the 2012-13 TV season.

Thank you NBC and Bad Robot because we sure love having Revolution film here in Wilmington, NC!
