Woo Hoo! We made it to Friday peeps! Let’s dive right in! Under the Dome will be on the sound stages today. They will be back shooting on location in Wilmington on Monday. We are moving from one production to 4 by Tuesday. The Sin Seer and FX’s How and Why kick off Monday and Max Steel joins the group on Tuesday. Max Steel writer Christopher Yost has just one thing on his mind.
The Jessebelle trailer has FINALLY been released! Shot back in 2012, the supernatural flick is about a young woman recuperating at her father’s run-down home after a tragic accident. No sooner than she arrives, Jessabelle encounters a terrifying presence with a connection to her long-deceased mother. It stars Sarah Snook, Mark Webber, Joelle Carter and of course our local favorite David Andrews. They shot the flick off 421 on the Cape Fear River. Most of it was shot in Town Creek at a house on River Road back. WATCH TRAILER NOW
