Now, the city says that weekend filming will be taking place in Gastown around Cambie Street and Cordova. It notes that it, “involves highly visible graphic content including mock dead bodies, a mock dead police horse, trash & debris.”

The CBS show, currently called Radio Nowhere, is created by Salvation Productions, and a notification letter sent to residents in the area states that filming will take place at 1086 Bute St. on Sunday, Nov. 3. It adds that scenes will include, “the brandishing of a weapon, coarse language, and special effects rain.”

Another notice states that Cordova Street from Homer Street to Abbott Street, as well as Cambie Street from Water Street to Hastings Street, will be temporarily closed. Cordova Street from Water Street to Hastings Street, as well as Abbott Street from Water Street to Hastings, will be closed, too.

Bus and traffic will be diverted as a result of the shoot.

According to StephenKing.comThe Stand is about a deadly flu that wipes out most of the world’s population. The survivors must choose between following two people and, “The two factions prepare for a confrontation between the forces of good and evil.”

IMDb states that the 10-episode series is set to air in 2020 and stars Whoopi Goldberg, James Marsden, Jovan Adepo, and Amber Heard.
