There are 14 movies shooting in and around Vancouver this June including 6 feature films and 8 television movies of the week.
May was an interesting month for big feature films in Vancouver. Production for the blockbuster installment of the Predator franchise brought an army of soldiers and armoured personnel carrier to New Westminster as well as a crashed-UFO set.
To continue the excitement in New Westminster, Big Star Sandwich lured Hollywood A-lister Liam Neeson who was filming Hard Powder nearby to stop in for a visit. On the other hand Fever Heart starring Alexander Skarsgard and Cara Delevingne was previously scheduled to start filming around town in May but has been updated to begin production in September.

American Idol alum (Season 5 runner-up) Katharine McPhee is set to star in Lifetime’s movie The Lost Wife of Robert Durst based on the book “A Deadly Secret” by Matt Birkbeck. Because production was moved up, McPhee had to forego a World Vision humanitarian trip obligation because of conflicting schedules, she took to Twitter to announce she would make a donation in her absence and make the trip at a later date. She plays the wife, Kathie Durst, in the chilling mystery about who killed her.
My home for the next month in #Vancouver working/shooting on a project called The Lost Wife of Robert Durst. For those who were following my upcoming trip to Jordan with this AMAZING organization @worldvisionusa, I had to cancel my trip last minute when production came to me and moved up the start date. I was so sad that I had to bail from a commitment I made to them but also had already been in contract with this film from 4 weeks ago. I always like to honor my word but there wasn't much I could do. I'm thrilled to be working up here and on this new project but also wanted to share my disappointment that the dates didn't work. I will get on another trip with this organization and will be making a donation in honor of my absence. Wanted to keep those who were interested in my journey there aware. ❤️?
