From brand new movies like Longlegs, to your favourite series like Yellowjackets and The Good Doctor returning for another season, here is what’s filming in Vancouver this February.
Longlegs is a new feature film that set up shop in Vancouver this past January. Filming for the project brings none other than Nicolas Cage to town!
Cage will produce and star in the horror-thriller movie about an FBI agent who joins an unsolved investigation for a killer known as “longlegs” which will be played by Cage himself. Filming is expected to wrap by February 23.

RIVERDALE – SEASON 7
Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead — the gang’s all here this winter!
