RED ZONE has officially wrapped!   After their last day at Screen Gems Studios, the cast and crew headed to the Blue Post and celebrated!

RedZoneWrapAfter speaking with Richard Ross, the Sr. VP of production at NBC/Universal, he told me that they are very pleased with what they are seeing so far.  I am getting mixed intel, however, of whether or not they will come back to shoot here if the show gets picked up.  I am thinking we will find our if red will get green at the Upfronts next month in New York which is May 14th for CBS.

Congrats to our local actor, Josh Cohen for landing a guest starring role on the pilot RED BAND SOCIETY from Steven Spielberg which was shot in Georgia.

Betsy Jordan wants you to tell General Assembly leaders to renew the NC Film Tax Rebate this year to keep these jobs in New Hanover County.  Her web site says, “While Betsy Jordan has been on the forefront of this fight, her opponent is on record as voting against an industry creating jobs, building community and keeping small businesses thriving.” GO THERE NOW  Or check out her Facebook Page

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 04/03/2014 – Age of Miracles, The Heart, Sleepy Hollow, Loomis Fargo, Bolden and Way More!

Happy Thursday my loves!  What a whirlwind yesterday, huh?  Well, guess what?  Here comes some more! AND NOW IT’S TIME FOR [INSERT BILLOWING ECHO-Y VOICE] RUUUUMMOOOORS FROM THE LOT!

sleepy-hollow1SLEEPY HOLLOW will be bringing more monsters, IchAbbie and perhaps Yolanda to the fans.  Rumor has it there will be more episodes this season, as many as 18.  I will be speaking with Orlando soon, and hopefully he will get us some more deets.

BoldenMore news about BOLDEN!  Looks like the indie flick will be opening offices again very soon.  THEY MEAN IT THIS TIME! Though they do not have an official schedule yet,  I heard they will resume production at the end of the summer/early fall.  AND I heard there offices are all the way out in Rocky Point.  Crazy, right?  No word yet who will be replacing Anthony Mackie for the lead role.  And who knows, maybe he will come back to the project…we will find out soon enough.

Kristen WiigThe indie flick, THE HEART from Indian Paintbrush Productions is coming to North Carolina.  Now, I know they have been checking us out here in Wilmywood, but I cannot confirm they will be filming here…yet!  Regardless, North Carolina will see a great cast!  Kristen Wiig, Sam Rockwell and we would welcome back Allison Janney! Wiig will star as a cash-strapped woman who agrees to transport black market organs with a man she just met, to be played by Rockwell. They want to get started ASAP, so we should know the rest of the details and exact location VERY soon!  Producing is Steven Rales, Mark Roybal, Kevin J. Walsh and Nora Skinner.  Nat Faxon & Jim Rash are writing and directing.

Zach GalifianakisUNTITLED ARMORED CAR PROJECT (aka LOOMIS FARGO) has named their Line Producer. It’s our LP from SAFE HAVEND. Scott Lumpkin.  He will be heading our way after he finishes up on THE BEST OF ME in Louisiana. And I am not sure who I am more excited about  coming back to North Carolina, Owen and Zach or Producer Lorne Michaels!  North Carolina is a greenlight, waiting for final confirmation about Wilmington, but my multiple sources insist it will be here.

Catherine-hardwickeLast night, one of my rumors from yesterday morning got a confirmation.  AGE OF MIRACLES will be indeed shooting in North Carolina, now I am waiting for a Wilmywood confirmation. I do know Wilmington was in the finals for them.  Hopefully, I will have that by the end of the day.  We shall see!

sofia-vergaraFor about a month now I’ve heard from three different sources the mention of BIG SEXY, but no one knew much about it.  Seriously, they would say ‘I am hearing Big Sexy’ and I was like, ‘what about it?’ and they were like, ‘I dunno.’  Well, I found out yesterday that it’s a feature from Red Granite Pictures and it stars Sofia Vergara and Pierce Brosnan. I have no idea if this will shoot here, but keep your ears peeled cuz that name keeps popping up.  If you hear anything, lemme know!
