THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 06/09/2015 Dome Days, The Squeeze, Vacationland

Did you see something special in the News and Observer? There is a full page ad (above) provided by the Wilmington Regional Film Commission and Screen Gems. Thanks for this Robbie. “FILM” is spelled out with the names of all the businesses that are part of the Small Business for Film coalition, and the message says:

Small businesses understand the importance of the NC film industry. Film production supports hotels and restaurants, print shops and paint stores, antique dealers and clothing boutiques, equipment rental companies and lumberyards, florists, locksmiths and everything in-between. Legislators, your vote makes a difference. Support small business. Vote Film.

With that being said, while Dirty Dancing is not filming and is holding up $4 million of the grant, I am hearing that the show Vacationland  who very much wanted to stay here has settled on Georgia. I am being told that our NCFilm crew’s getting calls to work on the show. The pilot was filmed here late last year.

Meanwhile the News & Observer’s Spencer Parts hung with us during day one of Dome EddieCahillDays. Check out his article, “CBS drama films third season as NC film industry struggles to compete

In the article Under the Dome cast member Eddie Cahill said he thinks the town (Wilmington) is especially supportive of film. “It feels personal here,” he said. Yeah, Eddie gets it. Nail. Head. Nuff said.

Today is day two of Dome days. I will be heading back to EUE/Screen Gems Studios later this morning to interview some more of the cast. They are currently on Day 7 of Episode 8. And guess who I ran into? The fabulous Eriq LaSalle! Yep he’s back and is ready to direct episode 9 then guest star on a  few episodes too! He will play the ruthless Hektor Martin, the CEO of the energy company run by Barbie’s father played by Brett Cullen. So plan on seein’ Eriq around town for the next couple of months!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 10/18/2013 Danny McBride, Rachelle LeFevre, Banshee, Sleepy Hollow and more

Happy Friday!  Yesterday on the blog, I gave you a blip from Danny McBride on Jimmy Kimmel.  Well, we got some more in.  Raise your hand if you were in the skating scene at Jellybeans!  Here’s Danny as he explains what happened, including the clip from the shoot that day!


OrlandoOn the Sleepy Hollow front, Some more details are coming out about Captain Irving!  According to E! Online, it looks like Orlando’s character has not only an ex-wife named Cynthia, but a teenage daughter named Mae.  We will meet the two ladies after the baseball break and you can count on seeing them in multiple episodes.   Regardless of their failed marriage, they seem to have a good relationship, however Cynthia is concerned about Irving’s relationship with his daughter. Expect to see them stick around for a few episodes.

The rain has put a major damper on Sleepy Hollow’s schedule and now they are working even more crazy hours than usual to catch up.  They head to Brunswick County, one location will be the Brunswick Town Museum in Winnabow.  Ichabod and Abbie continue shooting throughout the weekend as they will pull an all-nighter.  First at the 2nd St. parking deck, then at the NHC Courthouse on N. 3rd St.  Man, they are working INSANE hours!  Kudos to the cast and NC film crew for pulling this off!

The North Carolina shot Banshee‘s second season has a premiere date.  The 10-episode season will kick off Friday, January 10th at 10 PM. The Cinemax show nabbed a Special Visual Effects Emmy and shares a similar success story as Sleepy Hollow, picking up a second season just after the 3rd episode aired. It also gave Cinemax the largest audience ever for an original series finale. Cast members include Ivana Milicevic, Ulrich Thomsen, Frankie Faison, Rus Blackwell, Gordon Hopewell, Ryann Shane, Ben Cross and Anthony Ruivivar.  Good news!  They will all be back in January!

Today is the first day of production for The Squeeze.  They have a few company moves, kicking off the day in downtown Burgaw.  They then head to the railroad bridge in Castle Hayne and finish the day at the 6th St Bridge near downtown Wilmington.  Yeah, this is not your typical golf movie.

The UNCW Film Studies group is shooting a flick called “Late Friendship”  they will also be downtown Saturday afternoon on the 200 block of N. Front St. in the Vance Alleyway.

Under the Dome’s Rachelle LeFevre wants you to save your wallet and the planet with her, “Don’t be an Idler” campaign.

Success continues for Under the Dome as CBS Studios International announced yesterday afternoon an exclusive multi-year licensing deal in Germany. According to the press release,  they will “stream the ground-breaking series UNDER THE DOME on the Watchever subscription video on demand service (SVOD) service starting in January 2014. The agreement will cover seasons one and two of the show, and will run after its initial presentation by the ProSiebensat.1 Group, where it has recently completed its first season and generated top ratings.”

Melissa-McCarthy-ElleOur Tammy star Melissa McCarthy appears on the cover for Elle‘s Women in Hollywood issue — and critics are slamming the magazine for covering up the full-figured actress’s body.

While her fellow cover models Reese WitherspoonShailene Woodleyand Marion Cotillard showed plenty of skin, Melissa sported an oversized coat. Several websites blasted Elle for the cover-up. Slate called her the magazine’s “token plus-size cover girl,” whose coat is “so huge…she could hide her Mike and Molly co-star Billy Gardel underneath. Perhaps photographer Thomas Whiteside only knows how to photograph the usual stick insect models, because he clearly has no clue how to highlight McCarthy’s curves.”

Elle responded to the backlash in a statement, saying, “On all of our shoots, our stylists work with the stars to choose pieces they feel good in, and this is no different: Melissa loved this look, and is gorgeous on our cover. We are thrilled to honor her as one of our Women in Hollywood this year.”   What do you think?  Post your comments below!

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!

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!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY 10/07/2013 – Cast of the Squeeze, Sleepy Hollow, and More.

chrismcdonaldHappy Monday!  More info is coming out about The Squeeze. Let’s start with the rumored cast!  Some sources have told me Michael Nouri (Flashdance / The Proposal / The Terminal) is starring as well as Christopher McDonald (Shooter McGavin in Happy Gilmore) in this golf flick.  Now, I cannot confirm the cast yet, but I can confirm the reason for Anne Archer‘s visit to Wilmywood.  Not only is she here to support her husband of 35 years, writer/director/producer Terry Jastow, but she is also one of the producers as well.

Get ready for another sleepless night as Sleepy Hollow is on tonight!  9pm on FOX! In tonight’s episode, Ichabod helps Abbie search for her sister that has escaped from the psychiatric hospital.   I asked Chitra Elizabeth Sampath, one of the writers/story editors on Sleepy Hollow, what we can expect in tonight’s episode and Chitra said, “We’re gonna meet some pretty evil dudes who may or may not return.” Baaahahahaa!!!  Gee, thanks girl! Maybe we should just take a look at this sneak peek:

Weather permitting, the Sleepyheads will be shooting at Bellevue Cemetery, as well as on Princess Place Dr. adjacent to cemetery.  It will be a fun scene today as a chase ensues between good ‘ole Headless and one of the other characters on horseback.

MattLintzSleepy Hollow is welcoming back on set today, Matt Lintz. Mackenzie Lintz (Norrie, Under the Dome)’s little bro is holding his own and from what his mom told me a while back, he has actually had more acting gigs in Wilmington than any of the Lintz’ family members. Awesome Matt! We love having you here! The Sleepyheads will be shooting on the lot today. And of course, episode 3 is happenin’ tonight at 9pm on Fox and it’s all about the Sandman!

I asked Nick Gonzales (Dect. Luke Morales) about what we can expect tonight and he said, ” It’s all fun and games tonite on Sleepy Hollow until Capt. Irving gets his way.”  Hmmm, vague yet mysterious!  Here’s a sneak peek:
