The A-Team movie is filming downtown. Not sure if that is anything mentioned or if it's even started yet.

It seems that every commercial on television these days is shot in Vancouver.

Also worth noting that a portion of Tron's visual effects is done by Digital Domain Vancouver as well

May not be totally note worthy, but large portions of the set were built and maintained by local company 24 Hour Glass.

Wow, as if I wasn't excited enough for Tron already, that trailer is amazing.

Does the building called "Flynn's" exist somewhere around town? I didn't recognize it, and it looked like the street behind it was CG.

Looks like it could've been filmed on the backlot on Marine Way and Bryne Road in Burnaby.

Now shooting: Movie writer Glen Schaefer on five productions shooting around B.C.

The ProvinceMarch 14, 2010




Vancouver's Carrie Anne Fleming, back to acting after her new baby, guests on an episode airing March 25 of this series about two daemon-hunting brothers. She plays the wife of Bobby (Jim Beaver) returned from the dead.

Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman and Owen Wilson head our way in May for this comedy about competing bird-watchers who crisscross North America and end up in Gibsons. Directed by David Frankel ( The Devil Wears Prada).

Smallville star Tom Welling steps behind the camera to the producer's chair for this CW network pilot, an hour-long comic drama about competitive cheerleaders. Bandslam's Aly Michalka stars in what sounds like Glee with backflips.

Twilight Eclipse reshoots: Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart return to Vancouver

Robert Pattinson fans rejoice, the brooding bloodsucker has returned to Van City to shoot more scenes for the upcoming feature film Twilight: Eclipse, hot on the tail of news that a director has been chosen for the fourth film of the series - Breaking Dawn.


Veteran director Bill Condon will take the helm on the Stephenie Meyer written tour de freakout, having previously delighted critics and movie buffs with films such as Kinsey, Dreamgirls, Gods and Monsters and Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh.


Gus Van Sant and Sofia Coppola were each at one time discussed as possible directors of the film.


But for now, all the sidewalk panic and tweenage heart palpitations in town concern Twilight: Eclipse, the third installment in the Emo-heavy vampire/werewolf romance between Bella, a sullen Washington state teenager, and Edward, a vampire who sparkles in the sunlight.


Star Pattinson was spotted flying out of Heathrow airport early Wednesday in a brown leather jacket, jens and white t-shirt, carrying a tatty guitar case.


The combined female 14-year-old population of the Pacific Northwest will no doubt be back on the trail for all things Twilighty now that R-Pattz is back on Canadian soil, with local bars, hotels and even Twilight location tour operators looking to get ankle-deep in the Twi-Hard onslaught.

most drug commercials are like that they do it now to make it more human instead of glossing over it

Movie trucks rumble back to B.C.

Olympics wrap and new tax incentives lure moviemakers to province

By Glen Schaefer, The Province

The big movie trucks are slowly starting to rumble back into B.C. locations again, after the Olympics and an unfavourable tax-credit situation had the U.S. studio projects heading elsewhere earlier in the year.

B.C. tweaked tax credits in February to match incentives in Ontario and elsewhere, but by then the moviemakers had already made their plans for the first half of 2010.

"The features never jumped in, in part because of the Olympics," says Crawford Hawkins, B.C. executive director of the Directors Guild of Canada. "But by the end of the year, we'll be on an upward tick."

First to arrive among the star vehicles was The Big Year, a comedy that started filming in May starring Jack Black, Owen Wilson and Steve Martin as rival bird-watchers for The Devil Wears Prada director David Frankel. They wrap in July.

At the beginning of July, the sci-fi feature Caesar: Rise of the Apes starts filming, a sort-of prequel to the Planet of the Apes remake of a couple of years ago. Under British director Rupert Wyatt ( The Escapist), the new movie is an origin story set in present-day San Francisco, in which experiments aimed at curing Alzheimer's disease produce a strain of highly intelligent apes.

No word on casting yet, although unlike past Planet of the Apes movies, this one will use digital effects to create the talking apes, instead of people in ape suits.

Late July will bring the highly anticipated monster romance The Girl With the Red Riding Hood, starring current it-actress Amanda Seyfried as a medieval woman who becomes involved with a werewolf.

Red Riding Hood will be directed by Catherine Hardwicke, who directed the first Twilight movie in Oregon. Others in the cast include rising U.S. star Shiloh Fernandez and Brit actor Max Irons (son of Jeremy). Being talked about for other roles are Julie Christie and Gary Oldman. Set building has already started.

By July's end, Reese Witherspoon will be in Vancouver to star in the New York-set comedy This Means War, about two lifelong friends who have a falling out over a woman. Their feud escalates and results in the destruction of major New York City landmarks. Chris Pine and Vancouver's own Seth Rogen are being talked about as the two rivals. The one-named director McG ( Charlie's Angels, Terminator Salvation) is behind this project.

The producers and cast of the kids movie Diary of a Wimpy Kid, filmed here last year, will be back with the sequel Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules. Returning will be Zachary Gordon as the fictional preteen diarist Greg Heffley, and Canadian Devon Bostick as his mean older brother Rodrick.

Other filming possibilities include X-Men: First Class, a prequel to the durable Vancouver-filmed superhero franchise. Producer Lauren Schuler Donner and her partners are aiming for a late summer-early fall start. No word on specific locations, but Donner and the X-Men have had good luck in Vancouver before. Britain's Matthew Vaughn ( Kick Ass) is said to be close to a deal to direct this.

Hawkins says Vancouver film types are also awaiting word on a possible third instalment of Ben Stiller's Night at the Museum comedies, and a possible sequel to director Chris Columbus's teen fantasy Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.

On the TV side, the new USA network series Facing Kate starts filming in mid-June, with Sarah Shahi as a frustrated lawyer who decides to become a mediator. The USA network also airs the long-running Vancouver-shot series Psych, currently shooting its fifth season.

The CW network has ordered the new series Hellcats, produced by Smallville star Tom Welling and set amid competitive college cheerleaders. Set to start filming in July, it stars Aly Michalka ( Bandslam) as a university outsider forced to try out for the school's cheerleading team after she loses her scholarship.

The CW has also ordered one more season each of the long-running shows Smallville and Supernatural. The family drama Life Unexpected, another CW series which filmed its first season here, has been picked up for a second season.

Huh, I didn't know that BC changed their tax credits to match Ontario. Does that mean that our tax credits apply to more than just labour costs? Interesting, since they said earlier they did not want to go down that road.
