The Jolly Roger Docks In… Vancouver?
Vancouver is one heck of a town.
A favorite stop when I was with the Boston Bruins, I saw an awful lot of the city when I covered the NHL. Even then, almost a decade ago, I was very much aware of the city’s role in the movie business – Hollywood North, if you will.
In fact, I could see Tron Legacy’s ENCOM tower (Shangri-La Hotel and environs) from my own hotel rooms in Van City. Don’t recall? Check out the pic below:
The Jolly Roger Has Arrived In Vancouver
But from Shangri-La on the grid, we switch to Neverland, where HollywoodNorth.Buzz reported on the upcoming movie Peter Pan & Wendy, and some sneak peeks on the ubiquitous Jolly Roger.
Peter Pan & Wendy is building a huge pirate ship set south of Vancouver… The Jolly Roger set is under construction in south Richmond — April 2nd.
And, thankfully, they included a few pictures.
Can’t Wait To See The Flick
Based on J. M. Barrie’s novel “Peter and Wendy” and inspired by the 1953 animated classic, Peter Pan & Wendy is the timeless tale of a young girl who, defying her parents’ wishes to attend boarding school, travels with her two younger brothers to the magical Neverland…
The film stars Jude Law (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) as Captain Hook; Yara Shahidi (Grown-ish) as Tinkerbell; Ever Anderson (Black Widow) as Wendy; Alexander Molony (The Reluctant Landlord) as Peter Pan; Molly Parker (House of Cards) as Mrs. Darling; Alan Tudyk (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) as Mr. Darling; newcomers Joshua Pickering as John; Jacobi Jupe as Michael and Alyssa Wapanatâhk as Tiger Lily; and Jim Gaffigan (The Jim Gaffigan Show) as Smee.
