You might see a monster truck whiz by on Wednesday in downtown Chilliwack.
It’s for the upcoming live action/CGI movie, Monster Trucks, by Paramount Pictures, which features some car chase scenes.
Principal photography in Chilliwack took place in May of 2014, but they’re coming back to town this week to film a few extra shots.
Cameras will be attached to a film car and truck and they’ll be be driving some of the same routes as last time, such as on Wellington Avenue.
The star power for the $100 million film includes Amy Ryan (The Office) and veteran actor Danny Glover as a junkyard owner. They’ll be joining 20-somethings Lucas Till (X Men), and Jane Levy (Suburgatory).
The movie was originally set to be released this May.
Traffic should not be too impacted. Full road closures were not requested this time.
Filming is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the help of traffic controllers who will “lock up” side streets as the camera car goes by at the following locations:
• Young from 5 corners to Lewis.
• Main from Wellington to Patten.
• Wellington from College to Stanley.
Other locations include Wellington between Mary and Cook where a truck pulls a U-Turn
and on Main between Kipp and Spadina, where a truck pulls onto Main St. from a laneway.
