Resident Alien is returning to Ladysmith for a second round of filming at the beginning of October.
Previous plans for filming in March were scuttled by COVID-19 lock down measures.
Town council approved a series of road and parking space closures to accomodate filming from Oct. 1 to Oct. 8.
The filming setup will generally be a similar, but slightly expanded version of the January 2020 filming session. Additional areas are being recommended for use by the film company to help meet COVID-19 safety protocols. Resident Alien will be following WorkSafe BC and ActSafe guidelines that have been developed to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 during filming activities.
Filming will occur between Oct. 4 and 6 with setup starting Oct. 1 and tear down completed by Oct. 8. Locations will be similar, with most filming occurring near the intersection of Roberts Street and 1st Avenue and along 1st Avenue and High Street.
Resident Alien is a twisted and comedic fish-out-of-water story that follows a crash-landed alien named Dr. Harry, played by Alan Tudyk, (Firefly) who, after taking on the identity of a small town Colorado doctor, slowly begins to wrestle with the moral dilemma of his secret mission of destruction on Earth. This leads him to ponder the question: are human beings actually worth saving instead of obliterating?
Ladysmith will play the role of Patience, Colorado in the series, which will be broadcast on the Syfy network.
