Netflix Is Shooting A Gay Holiday Rom-Com Ft. Jennifer Coolidge In Montreal Right Now
The film stars Michael Urie, best known for playing Marc St. James on Ugly Betty, as well as Philemon Chambers, Luke Macfarlane (Killjoys, Brothers & Sisters), and Barry Bostwick (Rocky Horror Picture Show). The cast also includes the legendary Jennifer Coolidge (American Pie, Legally Blonde) and Jennifer Robertson who plays Jocelyn on Schitt's Creek.
Are any of the celebrities in Montreal right now?
The production wouldn't confirm which celebs were in town, but based on social media stalking, Jennifer Robertson headed home — leaving Montreal — on April 26.
Jennifer Coolidge posted a photo on April 10 with what appears to be an Air Transat plane in the background. However, we weren't able to confirm whether the photo is of her quarantine hotel room or whether she's currently in the city.
What's the plot of the movie?
IMDb summarizes the plot like this: "Desperate to avoid his family's judgment about his perpetual single status, Peter convinces his best friend Nick to join him for the holidays and pretend that they're now in a relationship."
The film is expected to be released this year — likely around the holiday season.
Where has production been spotted in Montreal?
The movie is being shot in Pointe-Claire, according to IMDb, as well as at Studio MTL Grandé in Pointe-Saint-Charles, according to Le Journal de Montréal.
But the production was also spotted on location in NDG and Montreal West on April 28. Two Montrealers filled MTL Blog in on what they'd spotted around the neighbourhood.
Pamela Breton told MTL Blog there were "no parking" signs related to the production all over Avenue Marcil in Monkland Village.
Linda Mundry said she saw crew — and possibly some of the cast — around the corner of Avenue Marcil and Avenue Monkland.
According to a filming notice from the production, Single All The Way filmed inside Saint Philip's Anglican Church on Avenue Connaught in Montreal West from April 23 to 26.
If you ever see the movie, keep an eye out for signs of Montreal.
