Jack Black, Owen Wilson, and Steve Martin heading to B.C. to shoot flick

Jack Black, Owen Wilson, and Steve Martin are set to film in the Okanagan later this spring.

Black, Wilson and Martin star as competitive bird watchers in The Big Year, a comedy directed by David Frankel (Marley & Me, The Devil Wears Prada). The film will use Okanagan locations standing in for Arizona and New Mexico.

Jon Summerland, Film Commissioner for the Okanagan Film Commission states, “The Big Year shooting in the Okanagan is the result of cultivating and sustaining relationships with key industry personnel from Canada, the US and internationally. Our on-going marketing strategies with tourism partners promote the region, plus we continue to expand the necessary resources that encourage productions to come here. The Big Year is the kind of result these endeavors produce.”

Jon concludes, “The film Gunless, starring Paul Gross, which launched last week, is also successfully promoting our region to film audiences and producers on a global scale.”

Brad Van Arragon, Co-Producer of The Big Year, adds, “we’re impressed by the creative and logistical support provided by Jon Summerland and his team at the Okanagan Film Commission. Jon’s understanding of the film industry combined with the extraordinary scenery in the Okanagan made coming here an easy choice.”

The Big Year is scheduled to release in 2011.
