THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/06/2013 – Sequel for Bad Grandpa, The PCAs, Sleepy Hollow, Oprah and more.

Bad_Grandpa_USA sequel is already in the works for North Carolina shot, Bad Grandpa! In fact it was already shot. The film’s lead star Johnny Knoxville has confirmed that an unofficial sequel is already being cut together. Just like the Jackass films before the old geezer flick, there is always a plethora of footage that hits the cutting room floor.  So, what do they do with all that footage? Release an unofficial sequel (dubbed “.5″) on DVD! But this time it will be slightly different as the new film will feature two Oscar-nominees cut out of the theatrical cut: Spike Jonze and Catherine Keener.  As for a full Bad Grandpa 2? Knoxville says he’s up for both. Bad Grandpa 1.5 will be released simultaneously with the theatrical release on DVD and Blu-ray.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 08/15/2013 LINDSAY LOHAN IS IN TOWN!

Lindsey Lohan

Well, I was gonna be quiet about it, but TMZ per their usual sneakiness just leaked the news. Lindsey Lohan is in town for a stint on Eastbound and Down.  SPOILER ALERT: She is playing the adult version of Kenny’s illegitimate daughter on the season and series finale.

TMZ reports there could be a spin-off based on her character in EBD Season 4…saying: “It’s a pretty big opportunity for Lindsay — her first real acting gig since she left rehab — because if she’s funny, a spin-off could be in the cards. Crazier things have happened.”

So what is like to be with her on set?  Yesterday, my sources said she was really nice to everyone and is happy to be back in the acting world.  I am actually really excited she is here because I am pulling for her to get her career back on track.  I think I have watched Mean Girls like 100 times!

Alexander Skarsgard

And if that is not enough, guess who else is in town?  If you’re a True Blood fan, you will love to know Mr. Hotness Alexander Skarsgard will be on set today as well!  Eastbound has pulled out all the stops when it comes to cameos this season!  A huge scene is supposed to go down on Eastbound and Down in Castle Hayne this afternoon, weather permitting.

Our gorgeous local boy, Dominic Santana is back in the local ET news.  Or more like BET news!  Huge congrats are in order as Dominic will continue his stint on the second season of the comedy, The Game.  “I’m looking forward to what BET may have in store for me and representing Wilmington film.”   Production starts back up in October.  Love that man!  He gives the BEST hugs!  Congrats Dom!

As far as filming goes today, the weather is not helping. Christmas in Conway is supposed to back on Forest Hills Drive.

sleepyhollowSleepy Hollow is in luck as they are shooting in Atkinson today.  Hopefully the weather will hold out for them.  We are in 2nd place.  Let’s try to take over New York and reach the #1 spot to ensure our early screening of Sleepy Hollow!  We need 100 votes to reach #1 VOTE NOW and VOTE EVERY DAY.
