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!

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!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 10/22/2013 Another movie coming to Wilmywood?

Rumorslogo

RUMORS FROM THE LOT!

Happy Tuesday!  Let’s kick it off with “Rumors from the Lot.”  Another movie could be coming to Wilmywood.  It’s an independent flick with a big heart. It’s called Fragile, a true story about high school football team embracing a mentally challenged boy, and could be in production before the holidays.   It’s a small project (under $5 million) and from what I understand is funded by folks in NC.  I think it will be a project that everyone will want to be a part of. So to sum it up, the movie is a fact, whether it comes here is still bookmarked as rumor, at least for now.  I will keep you posted.

mtvMTV is casting a new show!  Do you live in a real-life Modern Family?

Are your parents and siblings the anti-1950s nuclear family? Do you have same-sex parents? An internationally-adopted cousin? A hot, young new step-mom or dad? Is your clan multi-generational, multi-cultural, and multiplying? Perhaps your brood is made up of a recently blended family or an ever-expanding and hilarious, random group. If your family is fun, dynamic, diverse, and the new normal, MTV would love to hear from you!  If you appear between the ages of 16 and 25 and believe your household is totally modern,  please email mymodernfamily@mtv.com.  Don’t forget to include your name, phone number, email and a photo of your family!

CLICK HERE FOR THE CASTING CALLS OF THE DAY!

James-FrainWhen Sleepy Hollow comes back on November 4th following its baseball break,  James Frain  will put in his first appearance, and it looks as though Stretch Armstrong aka John Cho —will have his return. A few weeks later, on November 25th, Amandla Stenberg will make her debut as Macey, Captain Irving’s daughter.

The Sleepy folks head to The Graystone Inn, on S. 3rd St.  this evening.  There will be one of the horses at this location, but I cannot tell you if it will be Zach.  That’s Headless’s horse.  Also, it looks like we will see James Frain on set today. Another reported location for the day is the Cape Fear Club on Chestnut.

Well Wishes, a little film out of Raleigh, will be taking up space on the 100 block of Water St. until Noon today.  The characters will be spreading the wealth by filling parking meters.

ConjuringThe Conjuring is FINALLY out on DVD and Blu Ray today!  Buy it now in the Wilmywood A-Store, powered by Amazon.com!

And finally, congrats to local filmmaker Joe Stauffer.  His flick Pieces of Talent, won Best Feature, Best Psycho Feature, and Best Actor at the Fear Fete Film Festival in D’Iberville, Miss.

ConjuringHappy Friday!  Don’t know about you but I am SO ready for the weekend!  And so are the folks from The Conjuring.   It’s looking like the scary movie will break $100 million by the weekend. Not bad for a $20M budget.  UPM for the flick, Chris Bromley proudly said, “It’s climbing up the ladder in the top 15 horror films.”  Woo Hoo!

Town leaders in Boiling Spring Lakes are examining their filming rules and are considering new ordinance changes.  It would establish guidelines for productions who want to shoot in Boiling Spring Lakes.  If it gets the greenlight, the town would force production companies to pay a $25,000 deposit.  WECT reports, “The town manager says the thought is to draft an ordinance which would make the rules similar to places like Southport and Wilmington.”

Eastbound and Down head to Thalian Hall for the day.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 07/16/2013 – Another star comes to Wilmywood, new ratings for UTD Pilot, Peter Jurasik and more.

 

Tuesday.  Man, Tuesdays officially make me crazy, now.  Thanks Under the Dome!  I always begin writing this blog at the buttcrack of dawn and then it never seems to be complete because Tuesdays are ratings day.  I sit here all antcy in my pantcy waiting for 11am EST to come!  Argh!  Well, such is life.  But we did get this in at six this morning.  Remember we had the pilot numbers at like 16.7 million.  Well they adjusted up!  AGAIN! Check out what CBS sent us this morning:

“UNDER THE DOME” PREMIERE BUILDS TO 17.76 MILLION VIEWERS WITH LIVE PLUS 7-DAY DVR PLAYBACK
Viewers +31%, Adults 25-54 +36% and Adults 18-49 +39%
With Live Plus 7-Day DVR Playback From Live Plus Same Day Averages.
The series premiere of UNDER THE DOME surged to 17.76 million Viewers with 7-day DVR playback, according to Nielsen live plus 7-day ratings for Monday, June 24 (10-11PM ET/PT).
Live + 7-day DVR playback for the premiere of UNDER THE DOME added:

….from live plus same day results.

Another great episode last night the UTD folks we tweeting like mad.  I would like to especially point out that pig can now fly.  Yep, Alex Koch(Junior), who refuses to have a twitter account, is officially a half twit!  Jolene Purdy(Dodee) convinced him to LIVE tweet with her!  That woman has super powers!  I love her so much!!

UTD Script

Oh, and look what I got my hands on!  How would you like to own a piece of Under the Dome?  It could be your coming this September because we are gonna auction this beautiful autographed script during the Sunny 104.5 Caring for Kids at NHRMC Radiothon to benefit the new hospitality house.  More details to come!

WECT leaked the news yesterday.  Mary-Louise Parker will be our next star to head into Wilmywood  as Hallmark gets ready to roll for the TV movie, Christmas in Conway.  Production Begins August 5th.  We have some great local crew working on this one, including Emmy Young who was named as the Extras Casting Director last week.  Oh and FYI, Mary-Louise Parker will be on Kelly & Michael this morning.

peter jurasikOut on DVD today is 42.  You can see our very own amazing, Peter Jurasik.  I asked Peter when the movie was released what it was like to play such a controversial role, a racist in the movie 42.

“There is nothing more difficult in the process of playing a racist than playing anything else that you might have to play but have not experienced firsthand… like playing a homeless person or a less ( or more ) educated person than you — or in more extreme examples, playing a murderer, a pedophile, a abuser ( of drugs, alcohol, women ) or a terrorist. — I have tried to control people in my life, I have humiliated or belittled people in my life ( not proud of it, but true ). The actor takes the truth of his own experiences that intersect or cross with the experiences of the role as written… and if you can ‘ mix ‘ the two careful, you come up with a third entity called the character. A character who looks and sounds like you — whose emotions are fueled by your own experiences but speaks and acts like the person the author created when it was written. — Voila, I’m a racist.”

Very well said, Peter. You are a blessing to everyone in this community!

Looks like Eastbound and Down is taking over the fun parts of Oleander Drive.  The cast and crew heads over to Jellybeans today.  There will be over 100 extras in the skating rink.  With seven of the cast members, it looks to be a really fun day.

The Conjuring was shot here last year and it has finally arrived!  The reviews have been coming in for weeks now and the consensus is: THIS MOVIE IS GREAT AND WILL SCARE THE CRAP OUT OF YOU!  Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.  It’s based on the true story, so that always helps the fear factor.  I can’t wait!  It opens this Friday!  A lot of local actors landed some roles in this flick, so it gives us even more of a reason to see it.

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!
