After filming in New Westminster on Wednesday, Nov.20, the Warner Brothers TV “Batwoman” will be filming tonight in Downtown Vancouver on Friday night.

A resident notification letter from Renraw Production Services states that filming will take place at 1000 W. Hastings Street and 300 Burrard Street from 5:30 p.m. until 7 a.m. the following morning. However, a minimal crew will be on location throughout the day on Friday to prepare for the shoot.

Earlier this month, a resident notification letter was sent out before a Nov. 7 shoot that called for the use of exposed weapons, a van that crashes into a motorcycle, and atmospheric smoke. On Wednesday, the shoot called for exposed weapons, atmospheric smoke, and bright lights.

The most recent notice states that filming will begin with exterior dialogue scenes at 1000 W. Hastings Street and 300 Burrard Street. A scene also calls for a picture vehicle to drive from Thurlow Street and turn right onto W. Hastings Street. Further, the road will be blocked with barricades and picture vehicles with flashing lights. Actors will be in costume and brandishing weapons.

The next scene calls for picture vehicles to drive from W. Cordova Street and turn right onto Burrard Street. Actors will get out and enter 355 Burrard Street with exposed weapons.

Between 6:30 p.m. and 9 p.m., VPD will be at the shoot to help with Intermittent Traffic Control. As such, drivers may be asked to wait three minutes. Following this, there will be a full road closure at the 1000 block of W. Hastings Street after 9 p.m. As a result, motorists and pedestrians should expect delays moving through the area at this time.

On Nov.1, the City of Vancouver warned residents that there would be another 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” calls for a great deal of disturbing imagery, dialogue and noise.

Have a look at some of the images from the shoot.
