Deborah Ann Woll JessicaAs many True Blood fans are aware Deborah Ann Woll is filming Mother’s Day in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, a remake of 1980 cult horror film.  Recently the residents of Winnipeg had an unexpected shock. The local police received a call from a passerby who advised them that they had spotted two bloodied men with guns in a vehicle in the local area.  Police immediately responded to the call.  Once they arrived at the scene, it was explained to the police that they were shooting for a film. The blood was fake, the guns were fake however the police were real. The police quickly resolved the matter and no-one got hurt or arrested.  A source within the film company was quoted saying, “They all had a good laugh about it.”

Kenny Boyce the City’s manager of films and special events advised “such things shouldn’t happen”. Boyce went on to say that “they had permission from the city for a travelling shoot, but not for a gun shoot, they were granted permission to shoot in a moving vehicle. Through a glitch, the art department decided to include a gun in the scene.”

Boyce also advised that “we have a whole protocol around guns and gun safety.” When a film uses guns the police should be made aware well in advance, if a scene involves guns and a moving vehicle they have a police escort so that residents are aware that its just a movie.

The residents can rest at ease for now as the filming continues indoors.
