THE WILMYWOOD DAILY 10/28/2013 – UTD, Sleepy Hollow, Hank and Jed

Bad_Grandpa_USAnother NC Film success! Our North Carolina shot Jackass comedy, Bad Grandpa took the #1 spot at the box office raking in a sweet $32 million.

Another Monday comes with NO Sleepy Hollow.  It is truly grueling.  But I guess it’s nice to know everything will be right as rain in 7 days time.  When we return we will meet the Sin Eater ft. John Noble!

But we need to get used to inconsistencies because the season finale will not be at its regular time either. FOX announced the date for the finale which will be on Monday, Jan. 20, 2014 at 8:00 p.m.

cowThe UTD cast and crew enjoyed the weekend across the pond at the London Comic Con. Most of the cast are still there enjoying themselves. Missing Under the Dome?  How about reliving some bits.  Just in time for Halloween, here are UTD’s 13 creepiest moments.

Our local boys from Hank and Jed Movie Pictures (creators of Battlefield Friends) will be at Game Stop in Monkey Junction in Wilmington, NC tonight to help celebrate the release of Battlefield 4.  Plus they are giving away an autographed DICE/BF4 T-shirt while they are there.  The Prod Co was contracted by EA Games to do a “briefing” about BF4.  Check it out.

They will also be doing to LIVE radio interviews today taking phone calls from fans of the show.  Modern Rock 98.7 (1pm EST) and Z1075 (1:30pm EST).  You can listen live, just click on the radio station web sites.

The NC Film Incentives are still on the minds of many.  Here is a glimpse of an article from the Star News.

Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker said she supports tools to grow the film industry in North Carolina, but added that top state officials are “evaluating what our options are and looking freshly at it (the film incentive).”   Decker has generally been a supporter of the state’s film incentive but is working behind the scenes to build a consensus with state officials and film industry leaders. “We are looking under every rock and at all the options,” Decker told the Star News. “The big question on the table is, ‘How do we continue to help this industry grow in the state?’ I think it’s very clear when you look at it financially that there will have to be some changes in what we might continue to do.”  READ THE ARTICLE NOW!

JillianMurray

Jillian Murray

More actors and actresses have arrived in Wilmington for The Squeeze.  Yesterday, I reported that Jeremy Sumpter arrived.  Now I can tell you Christopher McDonald, Jillian Murray and Katherine LaNasa flew in yesterday.

Katherine LaNasa

Katherine LaNasa

Jillian is an up and coming actress who is really popping this year.  The Squeeze will one of 5 films she is working on in 2013.  As for Katherine you might remember her in The Frozen Ground or better yet, The Campaign as Rose Brady.

chrismcdonald

Chris McDonald

The most recognizable face however is Christopher McDonald.  You’ve seen him in, well…what haven’t you seen him in!  Chris been in over 160 projects along with 8 flicks yet to be seen.  I think he is most famous for playing the best jerk ever, Shooter McGavin in Happy Gilmore.  At the airport, he was instantly spotted and some Wilmington folks said he was super nice to everyone while taking pictures with a few fans at baggage claim.

Conjuring

The Conjuring and Iron Man 3, are in the running for Movie of the Year for the 2013 Hollywood Movie Awards.  They need your vote to make that happen!   The awards will be presented October 21st.   Today is the LAST DAY to vote!  VOTE NOW!  

WWAY is proud to annnounce we now have a premiere date for Christmas in Conway!  Mark your calendars for December 1st.  It will air on WWAY, our ABC affiliate.  The movie stars Mary-Louise Parker, Andy Garcia and Mandy Moore. READ WWAY ARTICLE

filmjobsLobbyists from Raleigh visited with Wilmington City Council during their agenda brief yesterday. The lobbyist’s spoke about what the local lawmakers could expect in 2014. The Lobbyists said that one of the most important issues facing the state concerns film incentives.

“We’re working to try and educate legislators,” said Harry Kaplan of McGuire Woods Consulting firm in Raleigh. We continue to educate them about the importance of that film credit both here in Wilmington and New Hanover County, but also across North Carolina, the jobs and economic development that it brings to the state.”

Thom Tillis,  Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives, has already said he supports keeping the incentives in the state. The state film incentive legislation is currently set January, 1 2015.  Learn more about the film incentives.

tommisonAnd last not not least how about a standing ovation for another great episode of Sleepy Hollow! Ichabod kept us laughing out loud with his “impenetrable barrier” issues with plastic and his fascination with scotch tape.  But of course, the suspense, drama and curiosity blended in perfectly.  Like butter baby!  Kudos to writer Melissa Blake for her mad skills and to 12 year old Matt Lintz for a great performance!   I will be posting, per usual, the ratings in a separate blog today by 11:30am EST.

SH_Headless

There’s nothin’ more fun than filming at the Bellevue Cemetery in the month of October!   They will be shooting tonight at that location on Princess Place Drive.  Perhaps you will see good ole Headless as he chases another character on horseback.  Awesome!  God, I love this town!
