Berlinale: Henry Cavill movie filming in Manitoba
Henry Cavill is co-starring in new crime movie Nomis, scheduled to film on location in Winnipeg, Manitoba, through to early March – the movie is looking for buyers in Berlin.
Cavill is best known for playing Superman in the Warner Bros./DC movies Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Alexandria Daddario and Ben Kingsley also star in Nomis, which tells the story of a US police force tackling an online predator.
Manitoba lies in central Canada and is not known as a filming hub, but the province offers a 30% cost-of-production tax credit. Alternatively, a cost-of-salaries tax credit can rise as high as 65% for productions that fulfil specific requirements like filming in remote parts of Manitoba and involving a local producer.
Productions shot in Manitoba over the past decade or so have included the Oscar-winning Capote, the Antarctica-set thriller Whiteout and acclaimed western The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.
Toronto and Vancouver are Canada’s main production hubs. Montreal’s profile is rising as the host of the X-Men franchise, while Calgary recently opened its first purpose-built studio and is home to the acclaimed TV version of Fargo.
