New DiCaprio movie filming in Vancouver has ties to Twilight, Harry Potter

Will Leonardo DiCaprio be jetting to the city?

By Katya Holloway, Vancouver Sun July 27, 2010

VANCOUVER -- Twi-hards, Harry Potter and Leonardo DiCaprio fans get ready to scream: filming of Red Riding Hood has begun in Vancouver.

Cameras are rolling this week on the new DiCaprio-produced film, which is being described as a Gothic-inspired retelling of the classic fairytale in the same horror-romance vein as Twilight.

It's being directed by Catherine Hardwicke, who helmed the first Twilight movie.

The film is also chock-full of familiar faces from the blockbuster vampire movie and the Harry Potter series.

Harry Potter's Gary Oldman (Sirius Black) and Julie Christie (Madame Rosmerta) join the cast, as well as Twilight star Billy Burke (Charlie Swan).

Chloe actress Amanda Seyfried stars in the big-budget flick alongside teen heartthrobs Shiloh Fernandez and Max Irons. Seyfried is the heroine threatened by the hairy beast, while Fernandez and Irons are the sweet young things vying for her attention.

The plot? Set in a medieval village that is haunted by a werewolf, a young girl (Seyfried) falls for an orphaned woodcutter, much to her family's displeasure.

The movie is said to be the brainchild of DiCaprio himself, whose company, Appian Way Productions, is teaming up with Warner Brothers to produce the film.

Not a movie shoot, but here's some shots of them filming V at the VPL, between 11PM and 5AM. The lights lit up my bedroom all night

Both V and Fringe film at the VPL quite a bit.

lol almost all of the scenes in Fringe where they are walking down a random road in a random town have the pillars of the library behind them. That or the VAG~

They do a good job of concealing their location, most time, by a conveniently placed tree.

In some episodes I have noticed Vancouver Taxi's and of course our transit buses behind them lol

Oh, and, let's not forget the North Shore mountains making an appearance when they are supposed to be in a parking garage in New York / Boston.

join an agency - there are lots in town - usually they will charge you for a head shot - but the ones i know people have used will take that cost - usually $35 out of the first job you get and than they take off a % of whatever you make on anything else - my friend did it full time for years - he could get work that lasted for months - my other friend started a couple years ago and has done a lot of stuff too

try thompson talent agency and local colour agency

yup - anyone - but parents need to be involved if under 18

all those people you see on TV shows like fringe are extras walking around - most of them get paid about $10 an hour - you get bonuses or extra pay for certain things - like my friend was one of two people used on a show so they got payd a bit more than normal as they were doing a little more in the scene - i forget what show it was but it was some sci0fi show my friend said - he and this other guy were working some computer board in a space environment or something

another friend got $100 extra for shaving his head on stargate - the old original show

Rehearsals begin for Tom Cruise blockbuster in Vancouver (updated)

Preproduction said to be underway for Mission: Impossible 4 at a Burnaby facility


Rehearsals are underway in Metro Vancouver for the Tom Cruise blockbuster, Mission: Impossible 4.

Cast and producers have been arriving, and rumour has it preproduction has begun at Burnaby's Canada Motion Picture Park, where scenes for Twilight, Fantastic Four and X-Men were previously filmed.

Tom Cruise arrived quietly in Hollywood North this week and has been lying low at his hotel in Metro Vancouver.

Local photographers PUNKD Images have snapped photos of MI4 co-stars Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead) and Mikael Nyqvist (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) arriving at YVR. However, Cruise appears to have dodged the paparazzi lenses to date.

Also keep an eye out on the streets for Josh Holloway, best known for playing the rugged James "Sawyer" Ford on Lost.

Filming of the action sequel began in Prague and Dubai; they'll be shooting locally until March.

Above average, like the first Tron. The look is fantastic
Its like Avatar really, but with an even better score!

Hopefully it does well and becomes Disney's next pirates, unlike Prince of persia.
