Who’s on TV today?

It’s a double Wilmywood Wow on David Letterman! We get to see not only Melissa McCarthy but our Domie Rachelle Lefevre as well!

Meanwhile some more Tammy love will be on Kelly & Michael as Susan Sarandon joins that crazy duo. I wonder if Miss Penny (Susan’s pup) will be there in style?

So, how did Melissa rise to the top as the most fabulous leading lady?

The wait is finally over, Wilmywood! Get ready to see TAMMY one day early! Almost 3000 folks from Wilmington worked hard on this movie, and we think you deserve to catch it BEFORE the release date!

PremiereTammy
Join us at Regal Cinemas in Mayfaire Town Center on Tuesday July 1st at 8pm! Come early as we will have Tammy’s 1986 Car and jet ski on display in front of Regal Cinemas – Yes the vehicles used in the movie!

MaxEhrichNow, back to Under the Dome. Happy birthday day to two Domies today! First up is Max Ehrich who is new to the show,. He plays Hunter, the boy who gets into the Dome. Also, big Robo-birthday wishes to Peter Weller who was just here directing episode 10 of Under the Dome.

comics-boom-studios-sleepy-hollowWithout warning or further details, Boom! Studios sent out this Sleepy Hollow comic cover and it’s gone totally viral in the Twittersphere!  Talk about a tease coming out of nowhere! BOOM! has already produced comic adaptations for Planet of the Apes, Die Hard and 28 Days Later via licensing agreement with 20th Century Fox, so why not, right? I’d buy it!

In case you didn’t believe me months ago, Nicholas Sparks was here, but not for his movie he is currently shooting, The Longest Ride. Nope, it’s the one they are shooting in September, The Choice. He went scouting with his producing buddies. Sure hope he stopped by The Longest Ride set at least to say, “Yo, what’s up? Thanks for making my book into a movie again Wilmington!”

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY 06/02/2014 – Jack Huston joins The Longest Ride, Under the Dome and more.

Jack Huston

Good Morning!  Well over the weekend we said goodbye to our super hero action folks as Max Steel wrapped this weekend.  However, like they say, one door closes, and two more open!  So, who is walking right on through?

The gorgeous Jack Huston (American Hustle, Boardwalk Empire, Kill Your Darlings), has been cast as co-lead in the The Longest Ride.  As two stories collide in this romance, it looks like Jack will be playing the younger version of the elderly man who is trapped in a car following a crash.  As he awaits a rescue his life flashes before his eyes, and his mind is flooded with memories of his deceased wife.  Oona Chaplin will play his wife when she was young.

eastwoodScottAnd with all that being said, the dashing Scott Eastwood has made it into town.  Scott stars as the bull rider and those exciting scene will be shot in Winston-Salem, so I hear anyway!   Britt Robertson (Under the Dome) will be following shortly!  Production begins in just a couple of weeks.

Eriq-La-SalleOver the weekend, our handsome actor/director/author Eriq LaSalle rolled into town as well.  He will be directing episode 10 of Under the Dome. Over the weekend, he spent some time with Peter Weller who is directing episode 9.

Welcome Peter Weller to Wilmywood!

Peter Weller has made his way to Wrightsville Beach.  The man who is so good at being bad in such movies as Robocop, Star Trek: Into Darkness and most recently Sons of Anarchy is spending some time at our beautiful beaches and was spotted enjoying at fabulous lunch in Lumina Station.  Not only is he a talented actor, Peter_wellerbut he is also a director.  I started sniffing around and I found out he was not here for Sleepy Hollow or Max Steel. After digging a little further, I did indeed find out that he will be directing episode 9 of Under the Dome. So, it’s good to know he will be here and have at least a little down time during Memorial Day weekend before he preps for the upcoming episode. Looks like we will see him in action, behind the camera, next week!  Welcome to Wilmywood Peter!
