STILL NO WORD ON MAX STEEL OR THE SIN SEER

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/16/2014 Locations and Tidbits for today.

Mornin! Not too much to chat about, but I have a few tidbits. Vacationland is out on 421 in Currie today before they make a company move downtown. Yesterday they dressed up another local business: The Gator Hole in Winnabow and renamed it, The Deer Hole. Nice one! LOL The TBS pilot wraps on Friday.

I am SO GLAD to see Sleepy Hollow using Old Books on Front St today! I know they will be in front of the building for sure, so you should be able to get a nice glimpse of them filming.

Bolden is back at their Stages in Rocky Point.

Blue Mountain State officially wrapped over the weekend. I am looking forward to this as they used The Conjuring house for their “frat” house in Currie. Love that!

CHoice_Editing

Director Ross Katz and the post production team are already hard at work editing The Choice. Looks like they got some gorgeous footage. This Sparks flick will definitely be a show piece for Wilmywood tourism!

Director Ross Katz got up and wished North Carolina well on our troubles we are facing with our fading film incentives saying, “I hope you guys have lots and lots of more movies down here in spite of the tax incentives situation, but I am sure I will see you on other films, I hope. I also wanna thank those folks who have given us their homes to shoot in. Thank you. The movie was beautiful thanks to your generosity.” He went on to give major kudos of course to the cast and the office staff who never gets enough love.” Great speech Ross!

The Choice is shooting in Whiteville today. Jesse Boyd should be happy about that.  It’s his hometown!  And yes, FINALLY, Tom Welling is back on set today!
