Director Terry Jastrow

Some more info is out about The Squeeze.  Their schedule is gonna be fast paced as it looks as though they are only giving 3 weeks for prep, and then production here in Wilmywood will last for three weeks as well.  They then head to Las Vegas to complete the film.  Terry Jastrow is the writer and director.  We also just learned he is one of the producers as well.

Sarah Crandall of WECT found an awesome top 10 list!  Wilmywood has been deemed the number one star-studded city on Rent.com’s list of the top 10 cities where you’re most likely to run into a celebrity, other than Los Angeles and New York. Boston and Austin take 2nd and 3rd.  Check out her article NOWroko

One of those celeb spotting locations is Roko Italian Cuisine in Mayfaire. The Sleepy Hollow Cast has this restaurant on their “must-dine” list.  Spotted there over the past couple weeks is Tom Mison, Nikki Beharie and Nick Gonzales.

ANOTHER STAR SIGHTING IN WILMYWOOD

AnneArcher

The absolutely stunning Anne Archer who is most known for her incredible work in movies such as Fatal Attraction, Patriot Games, & Clear and Present Danger, was spotted downtown having lunch at The Basics with a large group of people.  After doing a little digging, Anne’s husband of 35 years is the Sports Producer and Emmy Award Winner, Terry Jastrow.  With Jastrow’s extensive golf knowledge and resume, one can speculate they are here for The Squeeze, the golf movie which opened up offices at Screen Gems today.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 09/25/2013 New Movie Coming in, VIP Screening and More.

a-good-old-fashioned-orgy02Looks like another movie is coming to Wilmywood!  After speaking with three different sources, the golf themed movie is called The Squeeze and bringing it here is the Executive Producer of Silver Linings Playbook, George Parra.  You might remember him last time he was here as the line producer of Good Old Fashion Orgy.  This flick however will be made for a broader audience.  Attached to the family film is a first time director who will be left unnamed for now, but multiple sources are telling me they could open up offices as early as next week.  We will find out in the coming days if this intel is solid.

crackerjackWe didn’t make it, but they want us to see it!  Wilmywood has been selected for a private VIP screening as a premiere stop on the “Crackerjack Road Less Graveled Movie Tour.”  Crackerjack (Art Within Productions/Modest) is a heartwarming Southern comedy of one man’s journey down a road less graveled. The film opens at the Regal Mayfaire 16 on October 11th, with an invitation-only V.I.P. screening on October 10th.  The PG-13 rated film stars Wes Murphy and Bethany Anne Lind and narrated by Jeff Foxworthy.  The film was shot in Savannah, GA.

So why Wilmington?  According to the press release, Wilmington has a special place in director Bryan Coley’s heart.  It is where his parents met and fell in love over 40 years ago, and hence he grew up vacationing here.  “What’s neat is my kids now love Wilmington the way I have my whole life, and they are excited that they will get to see my film open up here.”

“This film reflects everything I love about the South,” Bryan continues,  “From boiled peanut signs to Pedro’s South of the Border to church league softball — and our narrator, Jeff Foxworthy — that’s not a bad recipe for good-time entertainment.

The filmmakers call it a nice blend of  “Raising Arizona,” “Napoleon Dynamite,” and “The Blind Side.” This Southern tale, told by executive producer, Jeff Foxworthy follows the comical missteps of a lovable loser, Bill “Crackerjack” Bailey IV (CJ). He’s a home run king…of men’s slow pitch softball, and he has been “sort-of” engaged to his girlfriend, Sherry, since 5th grade. However, when Sherry learns she’s pregnant and moves out to nudge CJ into action, the real root of CJ’s artful dodging comes into play: a curse that leads Bailey men to become absent as soon as a baby becomes present. Faced with losing his true love or confronting the curse and his impending fatherhood, CJ does what most men would do. He plays ball!

dalearchMy buddy Matt Warzel is doing another FUNdraiser for his flick Dale Archdale this Saturday to help with getting his movie in the film festival circuit. The event is from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Goat-n-Compass, 710 N. 4th St. A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Good Shepherd Center. Yes, this movie was the reason Ron Jeremy was in town a while back.

Reshoots for The Remaining begin today.  They will be downtown at Grace United Methodist Church for day one.  Sleepy Hollow heads back to New Bern today.
