Photos + Video: A peek at the 'Tron: Ares' film shoot on Vancouver's Cambie Bridge

The third installment of the Disney action-adventure series is using the bridge to film a "simulated vehicle accident"

A little "Hollywood North" action has been taking place on the streets of Vancouver, with a stunt scene for the upcoming Disney film Tron: Ares.

An overnight closure of the Cambie Bridge was in place from 7 p.m. on Thursday (March 14) to 6 a.m. Friday to accommodate the production.

The filming "involves driving with vehicles, motorcycles, vehicle tow rigs, and a simulated vehicle accident," reads a notice from the production company.

Early Friday morning, a motorcycle ridden by the character Ares, in an illuminated red suit, could be seen on the bridge. 

The film started production in January in Vancouver and is slated for release in 2025.

Tron: Ares is the third film in the Tron universe. The first film, released in 1982, was considered groundbreaking for its use of special effects. The sequel, Tron: Legacy, took nearly 30 years to reach the silver screen. It was also shot in Vancouver and used Cambie Bridge for at least one scene involving a motorcycle.

Jared Leto stars in the film as the title character, Ares. Last weekend, Leto was spotted in the Ares suit filming a scene at the Bentall 5 building in Downtown Vancouver. 

Leto's co-stars include Greta Lee, Evan Peters, Hasan Minhaj, Jodie Turner-Smith, Arturo Castro, Cameron Monaghan, and Gillian Anderson.

The Tron:Ares Cambie Bridge scene will resume filming on Friday night. A closure will be in place from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Saturday. 

The closures will run from West 7th Avenue to Beatty Street.
