What will happen to the NC Filmed Masterminds & Disappointments Room now?

Earlier this week the news broke about  Relativity being…well broke! Relativity Media has filed for Chapter 11 in what many are calling one of the biggest bankruptcies in Hollywood history. And that puts two North Carolina shot films in jeopardy: The NC-Filmed comedy shot in the western part of the state Masterminds (Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson) and the thriller shot in the Greensboro area The Disappointments Room (Kate Beckinsale). Both releases have been postponed “indefinitely.”

Today, Eriq Gardner of the Hollywood Reporter writes, “RKA Film Financing, the firm that put up $115 million to fund Relativity Media’s advertising on upcoming films including Masterminds, Somnia, Disappointments Room and Kidnap, is now seeking to seize those films and sell them off to another studio for distribution.”  READ STORY NOW

More to come on this story. Eriq Gardner says, “The Hollywood Reporter will provide updates on this motion.” We will be ready and waiting.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 07/23/2013, UTD, EBD, SH and more from the rumor mill!

It’s numbers day once again for Under the Dome.  We will find out the overnight ratings by 11 or 11:30am EST.  I, of course, will post them along with reviews and thoughts from the press and critics as well in a separate blog later today.  And I will keep you posted about Season 2.  Word is the crew will find out this week if they return to work and when!  The UTD folks are shooting the final episode this week.  They film on the lot for the day on Sound Stages 7 & 8.

YES!  Wilmington is in the TOP 7!  Yesterday we weren’t even on the radar.  BUT we need to be in the top 3!  DEMAND an early screening on the locally filmed Sleepy Hollow.  Sleepy Hollow will kick off the episode two shoot this weekend in New Bern.

Eastbound and Down is back to Jellybeans today with about 50 extras skatin’ around having fun.

The Hallmark TV Movie Christmas in Conway is looking for a photo double for  for this lovely and talented actress, Mary Louise Parker. You must have the same coloring and measurements and be available the month of August. She is 5’8 ” and weighs 120lbs.Her measurements are 34/24/33.  Please send a recent photo (head and bodyshot) to wimingtonbackground@gmail.com include your sizes and contact info. Please put MLP photodbl in subject.

THE RUMOR MILL

WECT brought the Angelina Jolie movie, Unbroken up again.  Although, I reported this movie’s interest in Wilmington about two months ago, they have added that Jack O’Connell will play Louis Zamperini, the Olympian turned POW.  My sources tell me that they REALLY like Hawaii, but hopefully they will see that North Carolina has way more to offer and is more cost effective!  Thanks for reporting this Ashlea!

And speaking of maybes remember when I brought up Loomis Fargo months ago! What light can we shed on bank heist movie?  The Jim Carrey flick (that has been in “pre-production”) for months now supposedly here in Wilmywood has attached another actor to its roster.  Looks like Owen Wilson will join in on the bank robbing in this comedy flick.  On a sidenote, Danny McBride and Jody Hill are two of the writers on this movie.  I’m thinkin’ a rollover here!  Just stay here and keep filming! Eastbound Film Crew can roll over as well!  My sources are telling me they have been some verbals hires, but I cannot confirm that.  Yet anyway!  Hopefully that is their plan with Relativity Media!

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every weekday morning at 7:30am & 8:30am LIVE on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Or just post your comments below!  Until then, that’s a wrap!
