City Seen

Monsters in Chilliwack

Filming set to begin downtown on Tuesday

Staff/Voice photos

 

ovie stars and their entourages have been mighty scarce in Chilliwack since the Eureka TV series ended in the summer of 2012.

 

They're back and Paramount Pictures has filled up the old Safeway parking lot with dozens of vehicles.

 

The movie being filmed in Chilliwack is called Monster Trucks starring Amy Ryan and Danny Glover. Filming will include a chase scene.

 

On Sunday, we caught a glimpse of what monster trucks and trailers the stars will be using on the set.

 

BIA employee Harold Zinke told the Voice over a coffee at Starbucks that they won't be filming Monday. So we can expect the crews to be out bright and early Tuesday.

 

Drivers will have to take extra care with film crews and curious onlookers in the downtown area.

 

Stores will be open to foot traffic, but expect street closures around the downtown core over the next two weeks as filming takes place.

 

We'll be on the lookout for stars. Watch the Voice for more later.
