THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 09/08/2014 The Remaining afterglow, Kevin Smith’s Tusk, Johnny Depp, The Devil’s Hand, and more.

We had a great time on Friday as more than 50 Wilmywood folks headed to Regal Cinemas Mayfaire for the premiere of The Remaining which was shot here last year.  We got most of the peeps in the pic!  Man, this was PURE Wilmington!  It was so great to see so many locations!

We got a double dose of North Carolina.  Before the show, it was cool to see the trailer for NC shot Kevin Smith flick, Tusk on the big screen before the movie. The movie was shot in Charlotte and stars Haley Joel Osment, Justin Long and yes, even Johnny Depp is in it, but no he didn’t shoot his scenes in North Carolina 🙂 His daughter Lily-Rose Melody Depp is also in the flick playing the character Colleen. The first review just came out.  Check it out.  And if you haven’t seen the trailer…

Now, where is everyone today?

As the shooting continues for episode 10, characters come home from school and get a rude awakening on Sleepy Hollow today on N. 15th Street…weather permitting. of course. (Two more Mondays until the premiere! Woo Hoo!!)

Secrets and Lies is in hiding today, but they will venture out tomorrow on N. 4th St.

TONIGHT on Under the Dome! When temperatures begin to plunge, Sam and Rebecca spring into action to try to save the residents of Chester’s Mill. Meanwhile, Barbie risks his own life in order to save Julia after a terrible accident on Under The Dome.  10pm on CBS.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 07/17/2014 Jack Bender’s UTD Tease, The Remaining release date, Secrets & Lies

“That’s a wrap,” will be called out later today! Final day on E. Bay St. in Southport! They will just be doing some pick up shots on Friday. However, some folks are already going home.

But before everyone heads for the hills, we want answers, right? I caught up with EP/Director Jack Bender and he gives yet one more tease of things to come. I LOVE THIS MAN!

But we won’t be down to two productions for long as ABC’s Secrets & Lies starts up next week. And the stars? Well, many of them are flying in this weekend.

If you remember Charles Dutton had to turn down his role in the pilot episode due to health reasons, so in came the fabulous Greg Alan Williams. Yesterday, I heard that Charles Dutton will not be returning to the show after all, and Greg will join the cast.

The Longest Ride is officially halfway through filming, 23 out of their scheduled 46 days.  They are back on Orange St. today.

_MG_7385.CR2A release date for the Wilmywood shot The Remaining has been revealed. So get ready to gather your friends and hit the theaters September 5th! The Remaining stars Alexa Vega.

Well looky here, Gov. McCrory is returning to Wilmington today, but so far has no plans to come visit the sets or the studios. Nope. The North Carolina Business Committee for Education is having a regional meeting at the Corning Plant Tour. He will be there at 3pm.

Speaking of the Governor, if you remember in his interview with Jon Evans at WECT, he called for more promotion of the state of North Carolina when productions filmed here. Absurd because many productions do it all the time, but he just doesn’t pay attention like we do. But seriously, I think Under the Dome has got it covered, Govna! Did you see this yesterday? And our locations guru Brooke Barnhill is the star of this piece, well, next to Wilmington, Southport and Burgaw! WATCH INCREDIBLE VIDEO NOW

And a final piece of satisfying news, we aren’t the only ones calling Bullshit when it comes to our governor.  Here’s an interesting read:
