An Oscar winning actor is in the Okanagan, filming a movie.
Richard Dreyfuss is part of the action thriller ‘Daughter of the Wolf’ which started principal photography in West Kelowna earlier this month.
The 70 year old Dreyfuss is best known for his role in Jaws in 1975, and won the Best Actor Oscar for The Goodbye Girl in 1977.
The film also stars Gina Carano (Haywire, Fast& Furious 6); and Brendan Fehr (Final Destination, Roswell).
The director is David Hackl (Saw V) and it’s written by Nika Agiashvili (Tbilisi, I Love You).
Okanagan Film Commissioner Jon Summerland says, “Mind’s Eye Entertainment’s slate of films that they continue to bring to the Okanagan and shoot here, is a clear statement on what the Okanagan is offering to producers. This represents the continuing growth trend as the region gains recognition as a great film and television production location.”
