WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 08/20/2013 Heart of the Country, Lindsay Lohan, Sleepy Hollow and More.

sleepyhollowVoting ended for the advance screening for Sleepy Hollow last night!  Hopefully we did it.  I will keep you posted!  The gang is shooting in Currie NC today.

Christmas in Conway is back in Forest Hills and Eastbound and Down is on the lot today.

Word has it, Lindsay Lohan is still in town.  Although she was wrapped by the weekend, she simply loves it here!  She was in Marsh Oaks yesterday as they were filming a scene there.  Can’t say I blame her, Wilmywood is pretty damn awesome.

If you remember, Heart of the Country shot here last year.  The movie is out on DVD and On Demand today.  The movie was written and directed by Wilmington’s own John Ward.  It stars Jana Kramer and Gerald McRaney.  Our lovely Sydney Penny also joins the cast.  Sydney is also the co-producer.  Marty Siu did the extras casting, plus, a lot of great local crew members were on this flick.  The storyline: “With her husband jailed for Wall Street fraud, Faith leaves her life of luxury behind to return to rural North Carolina and the father and sister she’d left behind. A love between a father and his daughter, it parallels the famous parable, ‘The Prodigal Son’.”  ~IMDB

We will see how last night’s episode of Under the Dome fared in the ratings last night with the overnight numbers coming in around 11:30am EST.  I will update the blog when they come in.

BREAKING NC FILM NEWS: The Bill to End Film Incentives

399763_4508207793860_2135126136_n

Remember that ridiculous amendment to the bill that would end film incentives one year sooner than 2015? Well, it was defeated BUT just by a baby’s hair!

While most of us thought it would crash and burn quickly, it was a super close call! After blah, blah, blah, the vote was tied 15 to 15. That means it failed. According to an article from WECT, “Representative Ted Davis says he had been gearing up for this fight at a later date, but now says he “really knows now who doesn’t favor film incentives.” Ted said he’s got some schooling to do with all those who were against it. I’m paraphrasing, of course.
