Filming in Vancouver: Snake Eyes, Project Blue Book, The Baby-Sitters Club, and more

Henry Golding will star in Snake Eyes.

There’s a lot going on this week, with four productions calling it a wrap—and one big one just getting started.

It’s yo, Joe, time, as the latest G.I. Joe action flick gets underway.

Two suspenseful homescreen movies are finishing up, one about a serial killer stalking a high-school grad class and another about a suburban town shaken up the murder of a young girl.

For a more positive spin on youth, a TV series about female friends who create a babysitting business gets an updated reboot.

And a UFO investigation TV series goes deep into Area 51.

Here’s a roundup of what’s happening in Vancouver’s screen scene this week.

Henry Golding

So to get going, let’s get straight to the action, shall we?

The blockbuster Snake Eyes, directed by Robert Schwentke (Allegiant), starts shooting today (October 15) and will continue until December 6.

Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians) will play the lead role as Snake Eyes joins a ninja clan on a mission to avenge his father’s death.

As the mysterious and mute G.I. Joe commando covers his face at all times and wears all black, Golding’s suave visage may not be gracing the big screen much—if at all.

Which makes it all the more important to catch sight of him while he’s in Vancouver, right?

Samara Weaving

Australian actress Samara Weaving (Ready or Not) has been cast as the crossbow-carrying Scarlett, who develops a special connection with Snake Eyes.

Iko Uwais

In other main roles, Andrew Koji will star as Snake Eyes’ blood brother and nemesis Storm Shadow, Iko Uwais as Snake Eye’s sword master Hard Master, and Úrsula Corberó as Cobra agent The Baroness.

The cast also includes Takehiro Hara and Haruka Abe.

While that one gets going, two suspenseful home-screen movies have wrapped.

There’s Someone Inside Your House, which began shooting back on August 22, called it a wrap on October 11.

Sydney Park

This Netflix ensemble horror-thriller, directed by Patrick Brice (Corporate Animals), adapts the novel by Stephanie Perkins.

When the graduating class at a high school becomes targeted by a masked serial killer who is on a mission to reveal all of their darkest secrets, it’s up to a group of outsiders to stop the murders.

Burkely Duffield

The cast includes Sydney Park, Théodore Pellerin, Asjha Cooper, Dale Whibley, Jesse LaTourette, Burkely Duffield, Diego Josef, Sarah Dugdale, Emilijia Baranac, Ivy Matheson, Markian Tarasiuk, Kayla Heller, and more.

Queen Latifah

Also calling it a wrap is When the Street Lights Go On, which filmed from September 11 to October 12.

Directed by Rebecca Thomas (Limetown), the crime drama (divided into eight- to ten-minute chapters and tailored for mobile viewing) follows what happens after a young girl and a teacher from a suburban town are murdered.

Sam Strike

As a homicide investigation continues on, the girl’s sister and friends try to retain a sense of normalcy.

Queen Latifah (Star) will star as detective investigating the case.

The cast also includes Sophie Thatcher, Chosen Jacobs, Sam Strike, Ben Ahlers, Julia Sarah Stone, Mark Duplass, Tony Hale, Kristine Froseth, and Nnamdi Asomugha.

Project Blue Book

Elsewhere in the city, two TV series from very different genres also finish up this week.

Project Blue Book will complete shooting 10 episodes for Season 2, which started back on July 15, on Thursday (October 17).

This historical sci-fi drama series is based upon real U.S. Air Force investigations into purported UFO encounters and unexplained phenomenon.

Laura Mennell

In the second season, Dr. Allen Hynek (Aidan Gillen) and Captain Michael Quinn (Michael Malarkey) will head into the desert to delve into the origins of Area 51 and the rumoured UFO crash site.

The cast also includes Laura Mennell, Ksenia Solo, Michael Harney, and Neal McDonough.

Michael Malarkey

Also on Thursday (October 17), The Baby-Sitters Club will finish filming 10 episodes for its first season, which originally began back on August 6.

Based on the Ann M. Martin book series, this Netflix live-action reboot will update the story of a group of female teens who join forces to launch a babysitting service in a suburban town.

Alicia Silverstone

The full cast hasn’t been announced but it includes Alicia Silverstone and Mark Feuerstein.

And with all these shows calling up a wrap, we think it’s time for us to join them—because that’s all we’ve got for this week.

But while we wait for these shows to hit screens everywhere, check back in with us next week for more on what’s filming in Vancouver.
