Filming in Vancouver: Good Boys, You Me Her, Resident Alien, and Cosmos

You Me Her

Some unconventional comedies and some—er—spaciness fill up this week’s rundown of what’s shooting in Vancouver.

A bunch of R-rated good boys are about to call it a wrap while the world’s first poly-romcom gets back on set.

There’s also a potential new sci-fi series being shot as a pilot, while a science series that explores the outer reaches of the universe is getting underway.

So if you’re intrigued, here’s a snapshot of what’s going on in the streets of Hollywood North.

Jacob Tremblay

First up, boys will be boys. And sometimes good boys will be bad boys.

The naughty comedy feature Good Boys finishes up on Tuesday (September 11). Filming started on July 23.

Co-directed by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (The Office), the film follows four boys about to enter adolescence who skip school as they set off on a misadventure across the San Fernando Valley (played by Vancouver) to get a toy fixed before their parents return home.

Keith L. Williams

Vancouver’s own Jacob Tremblay (Room), who previously shot The Predator and Wonder here, leads a cast that includes Keith L. Williams, Brady Noon, Molly Gordon, and Midori Francis.

And to add to the fun, there are more local connections: Vancouver-raised Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are among the producers.

However, audiences won’t see the final product for some time: the film won’t be released until August 16, 2019.

You Me Her

When it comes to comedy on the home-screen side of things, a poly romcom TV series is heading into its fourth season.

The American-Canadian comedy-drama You Me Her starts production on Season 4 on October 15 and continues until November 30.

It has also already been renewed for a fifth season as well, so this is one we’ll be seeing around town for some time.

Priscilla Faia

Greg Poehler and Rachel Blanchard star as a suburban Portland married couple who hire an escort (played by Priscilla Faia) to spice things up.

But when they all start to develop feelings for each other, things go from a twosome to a throuple—and all the challenges and hilarity that entails. 

The cast also includes Melanie Papalia, Jennifer Spence, Jarod Joseph, and Ennis Esmer.

Jumping over to the sci-fi department, a possible new TV series about an alien will draw upon comic-book source material.

The TV pilot for Resident Alien will shoot in Vancouver from October 1 to 19.

Director David Dobkin will adapt a Dark Horse comic-book miniseries into a drama series about an alien who crash lands on Earth.

After the alien takes on the identity of a doctor in a Colorado small-town, he begins to question his secret mission and wonders whether humans are worth saving.

The cast hasn’t been announced yet but we’ll also have to wait to see if this one is greenlit to become a full-fledged series.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Speaking of the subject of space—but getting back to reality—the science-based TV series Cosmos: Possible Worlds starts filming on Thursday (September 13) and continues until September 22.

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson hosts this 13-part National Geographic series, which began in 1980 with the groundbreaking Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, presented by Carl Sagan who addressed ideas about the origins of life and our place in the universe.

But it wasn’t until 34 years later that a follow-up series, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, presented by Tyson, was released in 2014.

This latest instalment aims to venture into the furthest reaches of space known to humankind—while illuminating the work of researchers who contributed to our understanding of the universe. 

Among the show’s producers is Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy).

Although there’s a bit a wait for the series to be broadcast, the good news is that you won’t have to wait a few decades for it; this new series will premiere in March 2019.

Well, that may be it for this week but it looks like there’s a lot more that’s coming up on the horizon so check back in again with us to find out more on what’s shooting on the streets of Vancouver.
