THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/04/2013 Sleepy Hollow: New Cast Member, Locations, PCAs and more.

Howdy and Happy Hump Day!  It’s all about Sleepy Hollow!  Well, mostly, anyway!

PenderAveLet’s start of with location, location, location.  Yesterday the fab Sleepy Hollow film crew was spotted at a very charming corner house on Pender Ave.  Today they are running at least two units.  One of which is the NHC Courthouse, the location they use as the exterior of the police station.  Another unit will be out and about today filming some driving scenes on MLK between N. College and N Kerr. They will be going with the flow, so no traffic delays due to filming.

VictorGarberWe can add Alias star Victor Garber to the Sleepy Hollow cast list.  He is playing Ichabod Crane’s father. Crane mentioned papa bear in episode 9.  What do we know about him?  He’s an Oxford professor.  That’s all we know for now.  Garber is expect , and he will appear in at least one episode.

VOTING ENDS TOMORROW for The People’s Choice Awards.  Make sure to vote, vote, and vote again for your NC FILM favorites.  And yes Sleepy Hollow is on the list!   Check out the list of NC Nominees NOW!

cableYesterday, the news story came out about some set thievery on the set of Sleepy Hollow.  Boo!  What’s wrong with people?  About $14,000 worth of  lighting cable, weighing around 1,000 lbs. left the set which was across from Screen Gems.  It happened sometime overnight, early Monday morning.  Thank goodness Screen Gems has enough equipment to run multiple productions at once plus we have some great production gear companies that could always come to the rescue.  But still, I hope they nab the folks that did it!

WECT put out this story yesterday.  A sober look at what would happen to New Hanover County if the film incentives faded with the sunset:  New Hanover County could lose more than $10 million annually in tax revenue if the state’s film incentives aren’t renewed.  That’s according to Robert Handfield, an economist at NC State University. This includes $3.7 million in sales tax revenue, $2 million in direct sales tax revenue from film-industry workers, and $200,000 in room occupancy tax.

Handfield added, “The implications of the loss of the industry on local tax revenue will be substantial, and will drive further gaps in state and local tax revenues, increased unemployment, and the loss of an industry in North Carolina that is healthy and growing nationwide.”  READ THE ENTIRE STORY

shane coffeyIf you remember I told you about a USA pilot that would be shooting here in NC. Well, my suspicions are now solidly confirmed.  Moving across the state, that pilot is indeed the drama The Novice.  It’s from Fox 21, who also does Homeland.  They will be filming in Charlotte and the surrounding areas.  They begin production in a couple of weeks. Shane Coffey has landed the lead. He is best known for his role as Holden Strauss in ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars.  Written by Hell On Wheels creators Joe and Tony Gayton.  According to Deadline.com:

The Novice centers on Kyle (Coffey), a charming and highly intelligent recent college graduate who is forced to move back home with his parents and siblings when his job search stalls. However, after a strange quirk of fate proves oddly fortuitous, he lands a position with a Korean crime organization.
