The U.S. was on the receiving end of North Korea’s fury over the release of The Interview thought up and directed by Vancouver natives Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. As VanCityBuzz pointed out, they probably should have been blaming Canada.
Not only was The Interview created by Vancouverites, it was also entirely filmed here in Vancouver on a $44-million production budget using Canadian talent from October to December 2013. Film locations included CBC’s Vancouver studios, The Ascot Lounge in Gastown and in Robson Square Law Courts, which were designed by Erickson, as Kim Jong-un’s presidential palace. Ha! Details and hilarious photos of filming locations from here.
