Mid-season FOX series Backstrom closed the north square of the Vancouver Art Gallery yesterday to film Portland Serious Crimes Unit Detective Nicole Gravely (Genevieve Angelson) and District Attorney Steven Kines (Ben Hollingsworth) emerging from what will be a Portland courthouse in the rain. Gravely is second-in-command to self-destructive Everett Backstrom (The Office’s Rainn Wilson) at the Serious Crimes Unit and not only tasked with dealing with Backstrom’s boorish behaviour, she has to make sure his unorthodox methods hold up in court too.

“I’m still around.” — Bindy Johal. Toronto director Deepa Mehta’s upcoming film Inland tells the story of B.C.’s notorious Indo-gangster “Bindy” Singh Johal (Randeep Hooda) and his Punjabi Mafia gang known as the Beeba Boys. Gunned down in a nightclub in 1998, Johal was a hero to many Indo-Canadians and a sociopath to others. Inland began filming in Toronto in mid-July and has an eclectic Indian, Canadian and American cast. Toronto actress Sarah Allen (Remedy) plays the female lead in this male-centric story.

Rumor has it they will “@yvrshoots: Local #ZombieWalk this Saturday. Hope a herd from CW’s #iZombie – filming in Vancouver – joins the fun.” — iZombie Writers Room (@iZombieWriters) September 3, 2014 Was there a zombie herd from CW series iZombie at Vancouver Zombiewalk today?

Organizers pushed back this year’s walk to September from August to try to reduce the photographer to zombie ratio. Not sure that worked but the walk did not disrupt Robson traffic like it has in years past. Exposed Braaaaiiiins. Mini Steampunk Zombie. And his backpack. Steampunk Zombies. Interactive. Vancouver Grizzlies Cheerleader Zombies. Did anyone spot Rose McIver or David Anders among the [...]
