Director Sobol brings it all back home, again

No Comments

From the Niagara Falls Review:

As tensions rise between the border guard and suspicious driver at the Rainbow Bridge, Jonathan Sobol can’t keep a straight face.

He’s watching on a monitor ten feet away as the guard, played by Canadian comedian Mike Wilmott, asks the driver – actor Jay Baruchel – what’s in the trunk of his car. With every take, Baruchel changes his answer.

“Smugglers,” he responds. “I am smuggling smugglers in my trunk.”

It goes on for a half dozen takes, the crew smirking with each one, careful not to laugh and ruin the scene. Finally Sobol yells cut and everyone breaks for lunch. He asks Baruchel which take he liked best.

“That’s up to you, dude,” he says.

Sobol gives his star a hug, and all is well on the set of The Black Marks, the Niagara Falls director’s follow-up to his 2010 dark comedy A Beginner’s Guide to Endings, also filmed locally.

Filming a movie in Niagara Falls


As you’ve heard, there is a movie filming in Niagara Falls that started today. The movie is called “A Beginner’s Guide to Endings” and apparently stars Dennis Hopper (even though he is currently undergoing treatment for prostate cancer).

I saw some actual filming today (“Action!, Cut!”), but I didn’t recognize anyone. They were filming at the entrance to Dracula’s Haunted House.

Here are some pictures of what I saw today:
