DEADPOOL Set To Close Vancouver's Georgia Viaduct This April To Shoot A Critical Scene

Deadpool kicked off production yesterday, and while details about the Fox film remain scarce, a new report has surfaced revealing Vancouver's Georgia Viaduct will be closed for part of April to shoot the sure to be insane film. Read on for more details.



The City of Vancouver has agreed to allow 20th Century Fox to shut down one of the city's busiest routes, the Georgia Viaduct, for over 13 days to allow filmmakers to shoot scenes for Fox's upcoming Deadpool, which stars Vancouver-native Ryan Reynolds as the lead. As a bonus, the film's production is expected to create 1,100 jobs in the Canadian city. 
 



“We’re really pleased with a major film like this coming to Vancouver when they had the rest of the world to choose from” said Vancouver transportation director Jerry Dobrovolny.

The use of the Georgia Viaduct is said to be necessary in order to shoot a critical scene in the film that requires a highway overpass entering a downtown core. If the teaser trailer we've already seen is any indication, this could mean another high-octane highway chase sequence is in the works. Outside of this tidbit, not much is currently known about the film's plot, but with the Viaduct being a highly public area, we are likely to see set photos possibly revealing more about the highly anticipated film in the next month or so.

Mr. Dobrovolny also assured citizens that “[he] can say with certainty that the Viaduct will not be blown up.”
