They'll be shooting a TV movie at the Cultus Lake Waterpark next week

It’s going to mean long hours for people working as extras on a movie shoot at Cultus Lake starting next week.

Nickelodeon has announced it will be making a made-for-television movie, Splitting Adam, at Cultus Lake Waterpark.

Production crews will be setting up and shooting in the Cultus Lake Waterpark for about five days as of Monday, confirmed owner Chris Steunenberg.

“We’ll be open to the public while they’re filming,” he said. “They’ll be taking over a part of the waterpark as well as a section of the parking lot.”

The waterpark should figure prominently in the movie.

Two casting assistants from BCF Casting in Vancouver were trying to get the details out to Chilliwack on social media recently for any prospective local residents who wanted to be extras in the movie.

In recent weeks, they’ve been appealing to actors, aged 6 to 30 for paid extra work on the film asking for profiles to be uploaded to www.bcfcasting.com.

The waterpark opens for the summer season on Saturday. It’s early enough in the season for the film shoot not to be expected to cause any headaches, the owner said.

“Our parking lot will be sufficient.”

There have been attempts to organize film shoots at the waterpark before, but none that were successful, Steunenberg said.

“We’re totally into this. We think this will be good for Chilliwack and the surrounding area. It will help promote us as a tourist area.”
