I don’t think this news really matters to anyone outside of Vancouver (who are probably so used to seeing films shot in their city that it doesn’t phase them much anymore), but for anyone that cares, The Wolverine and Superman will be shooting in the everycity. The Vancouver Sun reports that the Wolverine sequel will be shooting in the city from Nov. 11 to March 1, 2012 at Canadian Motion Picture Park in Burnaby, a location that also played host to scenes from Twilight, Supernatural, and Fantastic Four. The five month shoot in Vancouver indicates that the original plan to film the movie in Japan is probably out.
Man of Steel is also setting up shop in British Columbia and will be filming from September 21 – January 21st. There will be a casting call this weekend and they’d especially like some people with “older character faces and those who could be passed off as loggers for Nanaimo and commercial fishermen in Ucluelet.” Click here for details on how to apply. Other films currently shooting in Vancouver include Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3 and Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep.
