Filming in Vancouver: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, The InBetween, Jane Levy, and more

Lana Condor will star in the sequel to To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.

Valentine’s Day may have come and gone but it seems love will remain in the air for some time when it comes to Vancouver’s screen scene.

While an indie feature about two best friends searching for true love is finishing up, a sequel to a popular Netflix adaptation of Jenny Han’s best-selling young-adult romance novel series is coming soon.

There’s also a slew of TV pilots coming this way, running the gamut of genres from a detective drama based on a graphic novel to a musical dramedy.

Wanna check out this week’s look at what’s going on in Hollywood North?

See you after the jump, true believers…

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

First up, here’s some exciting news for teen romance fans.

Production for To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before 2 is slated to tentatively run from March 18 to April 18 (the dates are subject to change).

Lana Condor

Lana Condor (Alita: Battle Angel and X-Men: Apocalypse) will reprise her lead role as high-school student Lara Jean, whose life is thrown for a loop when her secret love letters to all her crushes get somehow mailed to all of them. Yikes, indeed!

Condor is no stranger to Vancouver not only because she shot the first To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before here but because she’s also a cast member of the locally shot TV series Deadly Class.

Thus far, other cast members listed for the sequel include Noah Centineo (who played Peter in the first film) and Fahad Alhaj.

Olivia Taylor Dudley

Romance of a different sort is the subject of Some of Our Stallions, which calls it a wrap on Friday (February 22).

This feature film began production on January 28 is directed by Carson Mell (Another Evil), who will co-star in the film alongside Olivia Taylor Dudley (who stars on the Vancouver-shot TV series The Magicians) and Al Di (producer of Brigsby Bear).

This indie comedy-drama follows two best friends who are both contending with mental illness while on a quest to find the love of their lives.

A release date hasn’t been announced yet so we’ll have to wait for word on that.

Looking to the near future, quite a number of TV pilots are gearing up to be shot in March. We’ve already mentioned a few and we’ve got a few more to tell you about that are coming this way soon.

Stumptown, which will shoot from March 11 to 22, will adapt the Oni Press graphic novels of the same name which first began in 2009.

This detective drama will follow Dex Parios, a whip-smart Army veteran with a complicated personal history who works as a private investigator in Portland, Oregon (played by Vancouver, of course).

Yet as skilled as she is in solving other people’s problems, she remains oblivious to her own.

The cast hasn’t been announced for this one yet.


Meanwhile, the pilot for Republic of Sarah will film from March 11 to 26.

In this series, a small New Hampshire town (played by none other than some place called Vancouver) is found to have a valuable resource that enables the townspeople to leave the U.S. and declare itself an independent nation.

This development puts the mayor and her inexperienced cabinet in the sudden position of running a new country.

Details are limited on this potential new series and the cast hasn’t been announced yet so we’ll have to wait to see who this project brings to town.

Jane Levy

Moving to a very different TV series, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist will shoot its TV pilot from March 14 to 29.

In this musical dramedy, Jane Levy (Suburgatory) stars as a quick-witted, verbose twentysomething coder who is able hear the thoughts of those around her in the form of songs (which they sometimes perform in musical numbers). Despite being socially awkward, she uses this extraordinary ability to understand and help the people in her life.

Other cast members are yet to be announced.

Of course, all of these are potential future TV series that may shoot in Vancouver. So we’ll have to wait to see which ones get the green-light to become full-fledged series.

Harriet Dyer and Paul Blackthorne in the InBetween (NBC)

In the meantime, a new TV series that also revolves around a female lead character with special powers completes production on its first season (which it began filming on October 15).

This Wednesday (February 20), The InBetween concludes shooting Season 1.

But unlike Zoey’s, this series heads into grim territory.

Justin Cornwell

In this police drama, Cassie Bishop, played by Australia’s Harriet Dyer, has an ability to communicate with the dead.

She uses this ability to help her longtime detective friend and his partner crack some of the city’s most puzzling cases.

Anne-Marie Johnson

The cast includes Justin Cornwell, Anne-Marie Johnson, Cindy Luna, Chad James Buchanan, and Paul Blackthorne.

A specific premiere date hasn’t been announced yet but it will be released sometime this spring on NBC so keep your eyes peeled.

And that’s all for this week.

But there’s plenty more coming this way very soon to chat about so be sure to check in with us again next week for another instalment of what’s coming and going from Vancouver’s screen scene.
