Mother’s Day Filming Interrupted by Police Siege!
As we’ve told you already, Darren Lynn Bousman’s Mother’s Day remake is currently filming in the Great White North. The production was interrupted this past Saturday by Canadian police after mistaking a faux bank robbery for the real deal! Read on for the skinny!
Winnipeg CTV reports that police closed in on the Mother’s Day production after police were called to a TD Bank branch on Osborne Street with reports of a robbery and bomb threat. Officials say a man claiming to have a bomb in a box managed to get away from the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Meanwhile, the cast and crew of Mother’s Day were busy shooting a scene where two bloodied and heavily armed bank robbers were making their own getaway. "We heard drop your bleeping weapons and kind of looked in the rearview mirror," said actor Patrick Flueger. They were able to clear up the confusion by producing permits for the production, but the real bank robber remains at large.
Maybe he’ll run afoul of Queenie.
