WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD
Let’s start off with who is filming where. Under the Dome will be on the lot for the first half of the day, then head over to Chestnut St for some interior shots. Yeah, quite a short list now, but it’s gonna get super busy in a few weeks.
Now onto the most anticipated big budget film so far this year. Tammy starring Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates has added Mark Duplass, Allison Janney and the legendary Dan Aykroyd to the cast.
McCarthy plays as a fast food restaurant employee who, after finding out her husband is cheating on her, she quits her job and sets out on a journey to Mount Rushmore to “find herself”. She gets stuck with her “alcoholic, foul-mouthed, diabetic” grandmother (Sarandon) who insists on making the trip as well.
Duplass plays a man that McCarthy meets on the trip, spawning a strange relationship, while Aykroyd is playing Duplass’ father and Janney will play McCarthy’s mother.
And once again if you are looking to be an extra on this comedy, they will begin taking submissions within the next two weeks. I, of course, will give you the info you need when I am allowed to tell you.
That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every morning (Monday-Friday) at 8:30am. Until then, that’s a wrap!
