Hollywood comes to Sooke! Over the next six weeks, a motion picture featuring Parker Posey, Ken Jeong and Aden Young will be shot here in Sooke.
The crew will muster at the Evergreen Mall with production occurring at places like the 17 Mile Pub and Mom’s Cafe.
The production crew has been working closely with District staff to ensure film permits are completed where necessary.
Many thanks to the businesses and residents for accommodating the production.
Wishing the crew, actors and all parties an enjoyable time in our beautiful community.
