THE WILMYWOOD DAILY 10/28/2013 – UTD, Sleepy Hollow, Hank and Jed

Bad_Grandpa_USAnother NC Film success! Our North Carolina shot Jackass comedy, Bad Grandpa took the #1 spot at the box office raking in a sweet $32 million.

Another Monday comes with NO Sleepy Hollow.  It is truly grueling.  But I guess it’s nice to know everything will be right as rain in 7 days time.  When we return we will meet the Sin Eater ft. John Noble!

But we need to get used to inconsistencies because the season finale will not be at its regular time either. FOX announced the date for the finale which will be on Monday, Jan. 20, 2014 at 8:00 p.m.

cowThe UTD cast and crew enjoyed the weekend across the pond at the London Comic Con. Most of the cast are still there enjoying themselves. Missing Under the Dome?  How about reliving some bits.  Just in time for Halloween, here are UTD’s 13 creepiest moments.

Our local boys from Hank and Jed Movie Pictures (creators of Battlefield Friends) will be at Game Stop in Monkey Junction in Wilmington, NC tonight to help celebrate the release of Battlefield 4.  Plus they are giving away an autographed DICE/BF4 T-shirt while they are there.  The Prod Co was contracted by EA Games to do a “briefing” about BF4.  Check it out.

They will also be doing to LIVE radio interviews today taking phone calls from fans of the show.  Modern Rock 98.7 (1pm EST) and Z1075 (1:30pm EST).  You can listen live, just click on the radio station web sites.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 10/03/2013 Sleepy Hollow, Witches of East End, The Squeeze, and more.

Director Terry Jastrow

Some more info is out about The Squeeze.  Their schedule is gonna be fast paced as it looks as though they are only giving 3 weeks for prep, and then production here in Wilmywood will last for three weeks as well.  They then head to Las Vegas to complete the film.  Terry Jastrow is the writer and director.  We also just learned he is one of the producers as well.

Sarah Crandall of WECT found an awesome top 10 list!  Wilmywood has been deemed the number one star-studded city on Rent.com’s list of the top 10 cities where you’re most likely to run into a celebrity, other than Los Angeles and New York. Boston and Austin take 2nd and 3rd.  Check out her article NOWroko

One of those celeb spotting locations is Roko Italian Cuisine in Mayfaire. The Sleepy Hollow Cast has this restaurant on their “must-dine” list.  Spotted there over the past couple weeks is Tom Mison, Nikki Beharie and Nick Gonzales.

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:

CUCALORUSCongratulations to the Cucalorus folks. They exceeded their Kickstarter goal of 23k with $24,108! The festival kicks off November 13th and runs through the 17th.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 08/08/2013 – EBD, UTD Piracy, Sleepy Hollow and more

sleepyThings are heating up on Sleepy Hollow today.  After a Police officer pulls a car over, a witch sets the car on fire and it explodes!  Okay, this show is getting fun!  They will be shooting this scene right beside Screen Gems.   Don’t forget to vote today for Wilmington to have an early screening of Sleepy Hollow! We need 140 to get into 2nd place.  I know we have more people in this town that love the film industry in this town! So, come on!  It takes less than 60 seconds to vote! The contest ends August 19th.

If you hear shots being fired in the downtown area, chances are you won’t have to worry.  It’s just Eastbound and Down downtown filming.  They will be on S. Front St, Betten Court Alley, 2nd St.  I would still duck and cover cuz lately, people are cray!

Christmas in Conway goes back for some more Ferris wheel fun on Forest Hills Drive.

River Guard is back at the courthouse on Princess St for Day 3 of the courtroom scenes. I think my favorite actor on set beside Eric Ladin, has got to be Peter Jason.  It’s really hot in the courtroom (gotta keep the AC off for sound)  Yesterday, when he took his judge’s robe off during a quick break, he was sporting a white shirt and tie with black shorts and pink shoes.  Hilarious!  He is just so fun and goofy!  Everyone LOVES him!  Also, pictured is local boy, Ben Yemba, best Bailiff ever! Ha!

under-the-dome-cbsPiracy rates are up for Under the Dome about 4% since the TWC/CBS dispute and black out in some major cities.  Wow!  That’s some dedicated fans!  “We will watch no matter the cost!”  Okay, I jest, it’s not a good thing, but is does seem like people are desperate.  Why can’t they just watch it on Hulu or CBS.com?  Anywho read the whole Variety article now!

AdrenalineI am glad WECT tweeted this because it reminded me to remind you that the folks making the movie Adrenaline have a Kickstarter campaign that has only 7 days left to raise all of their $45,000.  The film stars  John Schneider(Dukes of Hazard, Smallville) along with local boy Michael Rosander and Mike Holmes.  They’ve already shot more than 65% of the flick.  I donated about a month ago.  So, get on it!  Even if its just a couple of bucks, every bit helps! DONATE NOW!
