dp 5orange

Deadpool crew had a busy day of pickup work today with multiple locations, including Vancouver’s No. 5 Orange strip club and Pub 340 — a busy day with Wade Wilson/The Merc with a Mouth but not Ryan Reynolds. Instead Deadpool shot a hooded double entering both pubs. In he goes. And out he comes for another take. Some No. 5 Orange staff on a break in the Deadpool lights.  

SHOOT: FEAR THE WALKING DEAD Riot Stunt Rehearsal in Downtown Vancouver’s Oceanic Plaza


Fear the Walking Dead filmed scenes of a Los Angeles riot in downtown Vancouver last night, starting around 1:00 a.m. The six-episode companion series to The Walking Dead tells the story of the beginning of the zombie outbreak in another part of the United States. People don’t know what’s happening but there are “shootings, fires and riots breaking out across the country,” show runner Dave Erickson told TVLine. This is a stunt rehearsal of the mob crashing a scaffolding platform on a construction site in fictional Gabrielinos Plaza in Los Angeles. Uh-oh. View of set looking north. The hoist is there to knock down the scaffolding platform in a controlled crash. View of set looking south: construction site scaffolding from below [...]

SHOOT: FEAR THE WALKING DEAD’s Fresher, More Human Zombies at Hospital Set in Surrey

ftwd 308

In The Walking Dead’s Los Angeles-set prequel Fear The Walking Dead the zombies are “fresher” and still look human which makes it much more difficult to stop them. At last night’s shoot at a Surrey School District building turned Sisters of Mercy Hospital, I saw my first walker of the new series– this bloodied Doctor who practiced lurching ahead of the big scene.  Fear The Walking Dead wonders what you would do if someone you love became one of these walkers? And you didn’t know what was wrong with them. How long would it take you to realize that this loved one was not alive anymore? Not a person anymore? “Everyone’s trying to deal with the fact that people they know [...]

SHOOT: DEADPOOL With Ryan Reynolds Back at Terminal City Ironworks Compound in East Vancouver

dp bloody rr

Calista King. World’s greatest #deadpool fan set visit. Came with a smile. Left with Deadpool’s sword. Not bad. — Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) May 15, 2015 Why is Ryan Reynolds so bloodied in this photo taken on set at the Terminal City Ironworks compound in east Vancouver? Deadpool’s origin is Wade Wilson, the Merc With a Mouth. This wise-cracking amoral gun-for-hire has cancer, so he  partakes in military experiments to cure himself by replicating Wolverine’s mutant ability to heal quickly. The experiment succeeds except Wilson ends up terribly scarred. So the non-stop quipster hides his ravaged face behind a red and black mask and breaks the fourth wall to talk to the audience. Officially halfway through production on #deadpool and I [...]

SCRIPT: STAR TREK 3 Co-Writer Simon Pegg Says Studio Found Earlier Scripts “Too Star Trek-y”

Star Trek into darkness

Star Trek 3 co-screenwriter Simon Pegg plays Scotty on far right. Will Star Trek 3 be a more “fun, brightly coloured, Saturday night entertainment” like The Avengers but populated by Star Trek characters? Star Trek 3 begins filming in metro Vancouver late next month with a new script co-written by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung. A script that will be “more inclusive” than earlier scripts that were a  ”little too Star Trek-y”, Pegg told British magazine Radio Times. Reportedly, Paramount questioned why the supposedly niche Marvel’s The Avengers franchise made a billion dollars more in worldwide box office than the better-known Star Trek brand with its second rebooted installment,  Star Trek: Into Darkness. The studio likely feels vindicated about its concerns by [...]
