WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 09/27/2013 Eastbound, Cucalorus, The Remaining and more.

timguineeTim Guinee (Charlie’s father from Season One of NBC’s Revolution) is back in North Carolina, but this time is is for our other NC hit show, Homeland. While he was in Charlotte, he had to sound off and be his usual grateful self complimenting the writers, the cast and the NC Film crew.  I had a quick exchange with Tim this morning and he said:

“Being a graduate of UNCSA in Winston-Salem, it’s always great to come back to work in North Carolina. So glad there’s so much work here.”  He went on in support of our NC Film Incentives, “I hope the state is smart enough to keep the tax incentives which are above all such a great thing for the NC economy. It would be sad to see all those jobs pack up and move to another state as it so often happens.”

Tim, we love your support and we definitely glad you are back in NC for a few days!  Love to you my friend!

Our Under the Dome creator Stephen King join the ladies on The View today 11am EST He’s there of course to talk about his new book, but I am sure they touch upon the success of our show.

Sleepy Hollow will be back in New Bern and it looks like they will have a very long day.  Crew members aren’t returning to Wilmington until Saturday.

nickGI have to say I love when our stars give shout-outs to the local restaurants.  This time it was Nick Gonzalez aka Detective Luke Morales on Sleepy Hollow who gave some kudos to Roko and Manna, which are of course two of the many favorite restaurants of the stars that pass through Wilmywood.  Thanks Nick! We appreciate you talkin’ local!

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!

Andy Garcia Deauville 2009

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?

Did you vote today?  An early screening of Sleepy Hollow could come to Wilmington with your help!  Make sure to DEMAND it! We’re gonna need at least 50 votes today to stay in the top 3!  DEMAND it now!

filmjobsAnd finally I wanna thank EUE Screen Gems for hooking you up these stickers that many of you have been trying to locate!  I will have them to hand out this coming Friday as we begin with the Sunny 104.5 Caring for Kids at NHRMC campaign.  The Radiothon is September 18th & 19th but we are getting a head start with donation stops.  Stop #1 is Friday from 11am -1pm at Carolina BBQ at Murrayville Station on N College Rd.  Stop by and see me, drop in a donation, any amount is fine, and I will give you Film=Jobs sticker!  Plus, might as well eat as 10% of food sales will be donated to the Radiothon while I am there.  It’s like you are supporting 2 causes in one!!

UTD_ScriptWait to you see just how much the film industry is supporting our Radiothon.  We got some serious autographed swag for this year’s auction!  Here’s one item that will surely bring in some clams!  We’ve also got some great items from Authur Newman, The Conjuring, Tammy, even a “Screen Gems Experience!”  More details to come!!

 

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 07/25/2013 Bolden!, Sleepy Hollow and More

More is coming out about Bolden!  Yesterday, I reported that Anthony Mackie is out and Buddy Bolden will be recast.  This of course will call for re-shoots.  Now my sources are telling me it will be way beyond re-shoots.  It’s looking like the entire film will be re-shot. That means going back to Louisiana to shoot some parts of the film as well.  Millions more will be spent to complete this film, but apparently it hasn’t stopped them from spending even when they are in a holding pattern.   While they have been waiting, their stuff has been in storage.  A source tells me it is costing them about $10,000 a month to store everything.   They also haven’t decided if the next go around will be shot on film or digital.

Wilmington, NC is the top 3 cities who have the chance for an early screening of Sleepy Hollow, but we need about 100 more votes today to secure our spot!  You can vote once a day, so please do it, it takes about 60 seconds!! DEMAND an early screening of the locally filmed Sleepy Hollow in Wilmington NOW

Another round of casting calls for the New Bern area for the modern day parts of Sleepy Hollow for Monday, July 29th.  Find out all the details now!

The Eastbound and Down folks return to Tabor Lane today.  The folks who reside Under The Dome head to Southport.  They will head to the 100 block of East Bay Street midday, then they will be at Trinity United Methodist Church on East Nash Street for the rest of the day.

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every weekday morning at 7:30am & 8:30am LIVE on Sunny 104.5.  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!
