Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is currently filming in Metro Vancouver and Canada-born actor Jim Carrey was spotted on set this week. 

The funnyman stars as Robotnik in the film franchise's second instalment. The first film, Sonic the Hedgehog (2020), was about a "small-town police officer" who teams up with a blue, lightning-fast, extraterrestrial hedgehog to "defeat an evil genius who wants to do experiments" on the space critter, according to IMDb.

The film also stars James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, Lee Majdoub and Tika Sumpter.

Filming takes place this week in Fort Langley and a Metro Vancouverite took to Twitter Monday (April 19) to say that Jim Carrey was on set filming a stunt scene. 

Katia Stano tells Vancouver Is Awesome that the film set has taken over Fort Langley's Glover Road. She adds that it "looks like a military invasion with helicopter and tanks included!" 

Stano also shared some photos of the set.
