Filming in Vancouver: Vince Vaughn, Olivia Munn, Jason Alexander, Six, and more

Olivia Munn recently shot The Predator in Vancouver but she’s joining the cast of another locally shot production.

This week’s roundup of what’s shooting in Vancouver sees a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. And fears.

There’s an action-thriller feature, a psychological thriller, and a military drama TV series. But there are also some laughs are coming our way with a remake of a 1970s family comedy TV series. And along with all of that are some big names coming to town.

So let’s take a look at who’s who and what’s what in Hollywood North this week.

The thriller Dragged Across Concrete kicks into production today (July 17) and continues until September 16.

Vince Vaughn

This crime drama, directed by S. Craig Zahler (Bone Tomahawk), stars Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn as a pair of cops whose aggressive tactics are captured on a video that goes viral, which results in the duo being suspended.

With little other options, the two men set off on a mission into the criminal underworld, but find themselves facing more than they expected.

Mel Gibson

Gibson and Vaughn previously teamed up on the 2016 war movie Hacksaw Ridge—albeit as director and actor, respectively.

Six

Things are equally gritty on the home screen side of things, as the military drama Six starts shooting Season 2 today (July 17) and continues until November 23.

This action-oriented drama series relocated from North Carolina to Vancouver for its second season. It focuses on the attempts of U.S. Navy SEAL Team Six to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan.

When they discover a U.S. citizen working with terrorists and their leader is captured by Boko Haram, they have to figure out how to deal with these unexpected challenges.

Six

The cast includes Barry Sloane, Kyle Schmid, Juan Pablo Raba, Edwin Hodge, Brianne Davis, Nadine Velazquez, Dominic Adams, and Walton Goggins.

Olivia Munn

Some new cast regulars will liven things up.

In news announced on July 11, we found out Olivia Munn will be going fresh from her gritty role in The Predator, which was recently shot in Vancouver, to joining the cast of Six as a CIA operative.

Another new cast member will be Eric Ladin (The Killing), who will play a loose cannon from another squadron who joins the team.

Meagan Good

Elsewhere in the city, on Friday (July 21), the feature film Motivated Seller wraps up, having started on June 21.

In this psychological thriller directed by Deon Taylor (Meet the Blacks), a young couple (Michael Ealy and Meagan Good) find their dream home in the country.

But since some things are too good to be true, they discover that the house’s former owner, played by Dennis Quaid (Soul Surfer), doesn’t want to give it up quite yet—and he’s willing to fight for it. Literally. Yikes.

Michael Ealy

Moving onto lighter fare, the new family comedy TV series Hit the Road finishes up production on its debut season on Wednesday (July 19). It started on May 23.

Hit the Road

This update of the 1970s TV series The Partridge Family stars Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) as the patriarch of a chaotic family that’s traveling the country in their tour bus trying to hit the big time as a pop-rock band.

Jason Alexander

Of course, hilarity and hijinks ensure—because with a premise like that, how can they not?

The cast includes Amy Pietz, Natalie Sharp, Nick Marini, Tim Johnson Jr., and Maddie Dixon-Poirer.

Richard Dreyfuss

Richard Dreyfuss also guest stars as the father of Alexander’s character.

Meanwhile, here some brief notes about other screen productions:
