Peter Leitch, the chairman of the Motion Picture Production Industry Association of British Colombia and president of North Shore Studios and Mammoth Studios has announced that Zach Snyder's Superman is headed to Vancouver. The news comes via theGlobeandMail.
Vancouver already has ties with D.C's Superman as it already serves as the fictional Metropolis in Smallville. Leitch stated via the website: “It’s good news, the local production industry has been on fire thanks in part to the HST, but also because of the experienced film crews in Vancouver, the quality of life here and the city’s proximity to Los Angeles.I think it’s a great signal that we’re doing very well here and that we’ve got the quality technicians. ... We’ve got a reputation now that we turn out quality product here and I think that’s made the difference.”
