After having had to interrupt their activities for several months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, foreign productions have resumed Montreal. In addition to Hollywood movies Mom I missed the plane and Moonfall, the first season of the American series The Republic of Sarah has been filming for a few weeks in Quebec, learned The newspaper.
This new series for the American channel CW will bring together several young Hollywood stars including Stella Baker (Tell Me Your Secrets), Hope Lauren (Supergirl), Luke Mitchell (Blindspot), Landry Bender (Looking for Alaska), Nia Holloway (Hawaii Five-0) and Izabella Alvarez (Westworld).
Filming began at the end of October in the town of Lac-Brome, in the Eastern Townships, and will continue in Montreal and its surroundings until the end of April. Scenes will also be filmed in one of the MELS studios and in the former Mabe factory in eastern Montreal.
The plot of The Republic of Sarah will be camped in a small town in New Hampshire. The series will tell the story of a high school history teacher (played by Stella Baker) who tries to save her hometown from the grip of a mining company. With her students, she will set up a wacky project that could allow them to proclaim the independence of their city.
Already in Montreal
The actors of the series have already arrived in Montreal for a few weeks. Several of them including Nia Holloway and Izabella Alvarez have shared photos of them on the set on Instagram on Instagram.
Remember that two other big American shootings are underway in Quebec: that of Mom I missed the plane, a new take on the cult comedy from 1990, and that of Moonfall, the next science fiction film from filmmaker Roland Emmerich (On independence day, 2012).
