VERNON – The first trailer for a feature film shot in the North Okanagan has been released.
The Recall is a sci-fi action thriller starring Wesley Snipes from Blade and The Expendables 3, RJ Mitte from Breaking Bad, Jedidiah Goodacre from Descendants, Niko Pepaj from Awkward, Laura Maria Bilgeri from Toby Goes to Camp and Hannah Rose May from Ballers.
Much of the film appears to be set in the forests around Vernon, which makes sense as it’s about five friends vacationing at a remote lake house.
A media release sent last summer says the five friends get caught up in an alien invasion and mass abduction. Snipes, who has starred in dozens of films including Demolition Man and Passenger 57, plays a survivalist who tries to keep the friends alive while fighting the invaders.
“I am thrilled to collaborate with the team from Bridgegate Pictures and VMI Worldwide to bring the script The Recall to life,” CEO Kevin Dewalt said in the release. “We couldn’t be more proud to work with a young cast and the talented Wesley Snipes to create a film that sci-fi audiences will be excited to see. We are also delighted to be shooting the film in Vernon, B.C. and the stunning Okanagan Valley.”
