THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 07/09/2014 One & Two, Yellow Footprints, Locations and more.

Thanks to you, we uncovered where they are shooting the supernatural flick, One & Two.  They are filming in Winston Salem.  It’s about two siblings living in a remote area who have supernatural powers but they are and have been stifled by their overbearing father.  Producing in Kim Sherman Andrew Droz Palermo is the director.  Production begins in about two weeks.

yellowfootprintsICYMI: The feature film Yellow Footprints (working title) is headed to Wilmywood.  It’s a coming of age movie that rises above the war and tells an empowering story of a Female Marine who struggles at home and on the front lines in a traditionally all male Marine Infantry Unit.  The title will probably be changed before its release.  Production offices will open at the end of the month for this indie-film with folks going into production in September.  CHECK ON THEIR FB PAGE

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 07/08/2014 Another feature film for NC?, Aaron Syrett resigns, Secrets & Lies and more.

JohnElvisIt’s was Episode 2 for Under The Dome, Season 2 last night on CBS and one of our favorite Domies, John Elvis who plays Ben was back in town to watch the action packed show with our beloved local Chester’s Millers downtown Wilmington at Hell’s Kitchen during the Barrettviewing party. Actor Barrett Carnahan took the night off from Sleepy Hollow to show support and have a little fun with friends while in town. A good time was had by all. John will be leaving midweek.  We will miss ya buddy! Thanks to Mary Jo Jackson for the pics!

We’ll see how Under the Dome did rating-wise later today.   Our Domies are in Currie today while Sleepy Hollow is at Hoggard High School and then Forest Hills.  The Longest Ride is at Atlantic Auto and CFCC.

Timothy BusfieldNow if you remember Tim Busfield is playing Benjamin Franklin is season 2 of Sleepy Hollow.  Well, it looks like ABC’s Secrets & Lies is borrowing him.  As a director.  Look for Secrets & Lies to begin production in about two weeks.

ABC’s Secret & Lies is still accepting crew resumes.  Send your resumes with position in the subject line to: secretsandliesoffice@gmail.com

Sleepy Hollow is returning to the San Diego Comic Con coming up on Friday, July 25th GET DETAILS NOW!

Although we’ve already seen this on Netflix, North Carolina shot Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5 is officially out on DVD and Blu-Ray today.

NCFILM OFFICECORRECTION: Director the NC Film Office Aaron Syrett did not resign.  Due to a reduction in workforce, Aaron will no longer be at the North Carolina Film office as of July 31st.   He did not leave in the middle of the battle.  This is so sad.  Aaron’s been helping keep things alive over the past 7 years.  We wish him well.  Looks like Production Services Executive Guy Gaster is filling in Aaron’s position.  We don’t know if this is permanent or temporary. More details will be released in the coming days.

RumorslogoThe feature film currently titled, One & Two is currently is said to begin setting up shop later this month in North Carolina.  It’s about two siblings living in a remote area who have supernatural powers but they are and have been stifled by their overbearing father.  Producing in Kim Sherman.  Andrew Droz Palermo is the director.  Not too many other details about this one.  Where in North Carolina is still unknown.  Let’s log this one still as a rumor.  No one has said boo about this one…yet at least.

A lot of people have asked me about the Civil War based pilot coming from Disney.  I am still being told, they are waiting until a decision is made on the film incentives before they decide on North Carolina or Virginia.  Hate to say it, but my gut tells me they are going north for this one.  (please let me be wrong).
