Today is the day that Star Trek 3 (possibly titled Star Trek Beyond) begins filming.
The first filming location is at Squamish Boulders.
A public notice was posted at the park describing the filming of Star Trek 3, which is not listed under its real name, but under the code name Washington. “Centre Forward Productions will be filming scenes from the Paramount feature film “Washington” on the above weekday dates.” (June 25-26, June 29-30)
“Filming over the first three days will take place in and around the Kacodemon Boulder and Cave Boulder. The last day of filming will be just south of the Black Dyke Boulder.”
There’s already a bit of controversy though, as supposedly some trees have been cut down and boulders spray painted during the pre-production phase of the film, and this cutting and painting has angered some residents. The British Columbia Parks staff is “investigating these allegations of environmental damage.”
