Feel like crashing a film set to totally meet some hot babe, or maybe famous actor in Toronto?
Well I’ve got the skinny right here on where to go. So put on your best stalking shoes and oversized sunglasses (maybe this way you’ll blend in with the wardrobe people) and let’s head to some exciting film sets! (Okay I lied they aren’t all that exciting) Sigh. This is Toronto afterall.
Beauty and the Beast
A modern day re-telling of the Disney classic. The twist? The “beast” is created as a result of a military experiment gone wrong. The downside is there is no “magic cure” to save him. He’s been in hiding from the government for the past 10 years, for fear if they find him they will kill him. There’s a girl involved, a little love story yadda yadda yadda.
Elena Michael’s the series main character as a women living in Toronto as a photographer with a dark past. A past that includes being a werewolf… Elena is forced to leave her “normal” life and head back to Stonehaven to deal with all things werewolves. Sounds dramatic and a tad fantastical.
Total Frat Movie
Not too much info on this movie yet, although it’s starring Nick Batemen, Tom Green, and Justin Deeley. It’s filming at the studio’s right by Lakeshore and Logan. Anybody up for a little stalking stake out?
Pretty sure we all know this is filming here. A show about (you guessed it) lawyers. Filming out in the downsview area, not ideal stalking location. However once I find out where Gabriel Macht eats, lives, goes out, and just about everything else he could possibly do in Toronto, I will report back with a fully fledged stalking guide.
Our fav girl Rachel McAdams is in town! And she’s brought that cute guy Mark Ruffalo with her. And Liev Schreiber and Michael Keaton and Aaron Eckhart and Stanley Tucci. Summary courtesy of IMDB: “The true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core.”
This feature stars Christopher Plummer and is set to come out in 2015. Only a vague summary is available at this point on IMDB. It’s filming this August/September and shooting location is Eastern avenue. Not to far from the downtown core, I’m game to set up camp and scout out for Christopher.
Something to do with video game experts. the military, and the 1980’s this film is starring Adam Sandler, Michelle Monaghan, and Peter Dinklage. Bridging the gap between comedy and sci-fi this film is set to come out July 2015. They will be in town filming until september 9th. Adam Sandler fans head down to lakeshore and wear your most flattering dress.
Pay the Ghost
A movie about a boy who goes missing at a Halloween parade. How riveting. Nicolas Cage, Alex Mallari jr, and youngster Jack Fulton star in this sure to be amazing thriller. They are filming at the studios down on Lakeshore. I might sit this one out, I’ve had enough stalking for one day.
