Needle in a Timestack: filming location
Filming took place in Vancouver on 18th June, 2018. It was revealed that the delay in release was because the film had to be edited and re-edited multiple times. The actors kept posting on their social media handles during the shooting. However, most of it was kept hush-hush.
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
On the west coast seaport of British Columbia, Vancouver is among California’s most ethically diverse cities. It is a popular filming location with it,s surroundings of mountains. It is also a hub of art, culture, theatre, and music.
The images of Orlando Bloom turning up for the last day of filming in Vancouver wearing a plain blue baseball cap and a denim-on-denim outfit went viral. He was seen carrying lots of water, his phone, and a backpack. The British actor was also spotted taking a nap before filming a night scene on the beach.
Although he tried to play it off as “meditating”, We don’t blame him though. As he said, it must have been the jet lag. He also, reportedly, had a six-page dialogue which he shared with Leslie Odom Jr.
Frieda Pinto was also clicked filming a scene with Leslie Odom Jr. on a Vancouver bridge. Her character wore a beige trench coat and denim, as she had her arms wrapped around Odom’s character.The two were clicked kissing.
