Trivia

• In early 2017, the film was refused a permit to shoot in Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. The explanation given was that Parks Canada objected to the antagonist of the film being an aboriginal Canadian. Even the actor playing the role, popular aboriginal Canadian Tom Jackson, could not sway the government agency’s opinion, and the production was moved out of the park.

• Unlike the original, this movie will not include humor and will be an action/thriller re-imagining of the 2014 movie source material

• The movie was moved to Fortress Mountain in Alberta and then on to Cranbrook, Fernie and Vancouver B.C. for filming.
