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 Halle Berry has finished shooting Roland Emmerich’s new flick, Moonfall, which began principal photography this past fall, here are a handful of movies and TV shows that are being shot in Montreal right now, according to ACTRA.
Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists (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.
