A film set in Vancouver tomorrow calls for high-action scenes involving a crashing stunt. 

Anish Karandikar shared a filming notification letter from production company Manly Shore Productoin Services Inc. on Twitter over the weekend, which states that filming will take place in the 500 Block of Shanghai Alley on Wednesday, Dec. 9 between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m.

The letter notes that scenes "involve our hero crashing into a fake storefront," and that the street will be dressed to look like a "bustling Shanghai Alley with vendors and carts."

The filming is for an upcoming American television series called Superman & Lois, which depicts the DC Comics characters, Superman and Lois Lane.

November 2020 in Vancouver film

Vancouverites took to Twitter last month to share images of the film set for The Mysterious Benedict Society in Gastown, as well as to share information about upcoming filming times and locations. 

The set called for "background actors in costume" as well as picture décor in the alleyway south of the 300 block of Water Street; several old-fashioned cars lined the streets of Gastown.

 ABC's A Million Little Things was also filming in Gastown last month, and Vancouver Police assisted with a temporary road closure of the 100 block of Alexander Street.

November 2019 in Vancouver Film

On Nov.1, 2019, the City of Vancouver warned residents that there would be a film shoot with highly visible graphic content in Gastown.

The shoot, which involved multiple mock dead bodies and even a mock dead police horse, transformed the city streets into a post-apocalyptic hellscape. Based on the horror novel The Stand by Stephen King, the set design for the TV series “Radio Nowhere” called for a great deal of disturbing imagery, dialogue and noise.

The set for the Warner Brothers T.V. series “Batwoman” also called for some high-action content, including the use of exposed weapons, a van that crashed into a motorcycle, and atmospheric smoke.
