These movies and TV shows are being filmed in Montreal right now

Oct 1 2021, 7:11 pm

Over the past decade, Montreal has become a pretty respectable filming location for big-time movies and TV shows in the industry.

Netflix’s¬†Pieces of a Woman¬†was shot on the island last year, the big-budget Tom Holland flick¬†Chaos Walking was shot in Montreal the year before, and the X-Men franchise, John Wick, Arrival, and Mother!¬†were also shot across the greater Montreal area over the past few years.

Now that Academy Award-winning actor Joaquin Phoenix finished filming Ari Aster’s next film, Disappointment Blvd. right here in town, here are a handful of movies and TV shows that are being shot in Montreal right now, according to the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA).

ACTRA is a Canadian labour union. Its Montreal branch represents more than 3,000 professional performers working in the English-language recorded media in Quebec.

As of October 2021, here is what’s being shot in our own backyard:

Graymail – TV series

In this series, Noah Centineo will play a fledgling lawyer at the CIA who becomes enmeshed in dangerous international power politics when a former asset threatens to expose the nature of her long-term relationship with the agency unless they exonerate her of a serious crime.

E-77 – Feature film


Allegedly the working title for the seventh installment in the Transformers franchise. E-77 is set to continue production in Montreal until September 30.

Three Pines – TV Series

From the executive producers who worked on Netflix’s smash-hit series¬†The Crown,¬†comes a new series adapted from the bestselling Chief Inspector Armand Gamache crime novels. The detective protagonist of the Louise Penny novels is Quebecois, making Montreal a logical place to film the series.

Ghosts – TV Series


Based on the BBC show of the same name, the American series Ghosts¬†began filming here in early August. The show’s premise is that of a couple who moves into a house that’s haunted by its former residents.
