Enderby excited about movie production

Mayor Greg McCune met Friday with producer Rick Dugdale and director Robert Port

Enderby is ready to hit the big screen again.

Mayor Greg McCune met Friday with producer Rick Dugdale and director Robert Port, who will film Peace in the North Okanagan later this year.

“It’s always great to have Rick back,” said McCune of Dugdale, who is Los Angeles based but grew up in Enderby.

“He’s a visionary about promoting the region.”

Peace, is set in Second World War Italy and is based onbook by Richard Bausch.

Lumby, Enderby, Ashton Creek and Vernon were among the stops Friday after locations were considered in Montenegro.

The North Okanagan landscape is a primary attraction for Dugdale and Port.

“The rolling hills and trees are what they need,” said McCune.

Pre-production for Peace will begin in October, with shooting at the end of November.

“I have told them to keep us informed about what’s going on. We’re offering support and will be giving them everything they need when they’re here,” said McCune.

This will be the third film Dugdale has shot in the North Okanagan, with the most recent being Blackway in 2014.
