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!
We got tickets to give away and just maybe some special prizes too! Listen to Sunny 104.5 for all the details! See you there!! CLICK HERE FOR FB INVITE!

THIS SHOW WILL SELL OUT! BUY TICKETS NOW! 

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!”

filmjobsLOOKING FOR THOSE FILM=JOBS STICKERS? Sunrise Broadcasting has a few.  Feel free to stop by and grab one while they last at 25 N. Kerr Ave. (near the intersection of Market and Kerr across from the new Walgreens).  Offices are open 8:30am-5:30pm M-F. WE GOT MORE!

After all the excitement this week in Wilmywood, it had finally settled down into a slow day, but I have a few tidbits to report.

The list of top 10 Summer movies is out from ComingSoon.net and 2 Wilmington flicks made the list.  Coming in at #1 is, of course, Iron Man 3 (Domestic: $408.2 million; Worldwide: $1.2 billion) and #10 was The Conjuring (Domestic: $129.6 million; Worldwide: $194.9 million).  The Conjuring is listed at #7 on the top grossing horror movie at the US box office.

Sleepy Hollow is filming at the Brooklyn Arts Center on N. 4th St. and also doing some driving scenes around downtown.  And in cased you missed, here’s the video from the early screening of Sleepy Hollow at Regal Cinemas at Mayfaire.

BACKGROUND EXTRAS: Don’t forget!  If you work in North Carolina, South Carolina and/or Georgia, make sure to register on Marty Siu’s new extras casting web site.

swirlAnother movie rolls into town this week thanks to Swirl Films! This is their 3rd movie this year! Kim Stewart begins principal casting this week for The Dempsey Sisters. I can tell you the main cast is African-American and there some great roles to fill with various age ranges. More details to come!

sleepyWe finally get a peek at the pilot episode of Sleepy Hollow tonight. If you RSVPd, the advance screening will be at Regal Cinemas at 7:30pm…BUT get there early! Per usual, it is oversold!  The Sleepy folks are shooting on the lot again today.

The television premiere on September 16th comes on the same day as the Under The Dome ends – Gonna be one hell of a night!

And of course all you Domies were on the edge of your seat waiting to find out who indeed was the 4th hand.  Did you watch it? Under the Dome took first place once again in viewers (10.64m), adults 25-54 (3.4/09) and adults 18-49 (2.4/07).  Our show was up +3% in adults 25-54 (from 3.3/08), even in adults 18-49 and added +280,000 viewers (from 10.36m, +3%) compared to last week.

Apparently Under The Dome is panning out for Amblin Entertainment.  Although Madonna tops Forbes Magazine‘s new list of the top earning celebs.  Steven Spielberg came in second with a $100 million pay check from June 2012-June 2013.

There was a big buzz on the set of Eastbound and Down yesterday, the final day for EBD.  Sacha Baron Cohen graced us with his presence, well on the lot anyway.  He was here for the past few days.  I wonder if he actually got to see a ‘lil of Wilmywood besides the lot?  Hope so.  The gang has moved on to Charlotte.  But before Danny McBride left Wilmywood, he did say he hopes to bring more projects here.  Um, Loomis Fargo w/ Jim Carrey and Owen Wilson, perhaps!  After all he and Jody Hill did write and the word remains, they are looking at early 2014.

SNOW DAY!  Yesterday Christmas in Conway turned into Christmas in August as a wonderful holiday scene was shot with plenty of snow!  The gang was back at the ferris wheel location in Forest Hills and from what I heard, it was a very touching scene between Andy Garcia and Mary Louise Parker.  There were a lot of background extras and I heard a lot of hot Firemen.  Ha!  Kudos to the actors and background for staying pleasant while wearing their winter wear with the weather in the 80s.  (Kinda like working on Sleepy Hollow perhaps?)

Under The Dome – shoots at the old cement plant today in Wilmington.  On the Wilmywood Facebook page, I asked what movie or TV show was a favorite to work on, and the most popular was indeed Under the Dome.

The  stars make their way into town this week.  Melissa and Susan are already here, but we can look forward to Kathy Bates, Dan Aykroyd, and Toni Collette arriving this week.  Tammy begins filming this Friday.
