Movie-making keeps Dugdale hopping

Rick Dugdale’s whirlwind adventure continues.

The Enderby native is currently in the midst of shooting the third film in the Intrigo trilogy in Europe.

“Day 57 of 75 is where we’re at,” said Dugdale, president of Los Angeles-based Enderby Entertainment, during an interview from Serbia.

“It’s definitely ambitious shooting three films back to back.

“It’s very challenging and complex but everything looks amazing.”

The first film, Intrigo: Death of an Author, starring Ben Kingsley, has completed principal photography on location in Belgium and the Balkans.

The second film, Intrigo: Dear Agnes, starring Carla Juri and Gemma Chan is now completed and the third, Intrigo: Samaria, is underway.

All three films are directed by Sweden’s Daniel Alfredson, who shot Blackway in the North Okanagan.

As part of the trilogy, a book tour will also be launched featuring Swedish author Hakan Nesser, who wrote the books that inspired the films.

“We hope the book tour will be a worldwide phenomenon,” said Dugdale, who hopes to have Nesser in either Vernon or Kelowna.

While Europe is currently Dugdale’s primary focus, he is looking ahead to the North Okanagan.

The filming of Peace begins in the Enderby/Vernon area at the end of November and will continue into December.

“I’ll be home for the holidays, which will be nice,” said Dugdale.

Enderby Entertainment is currently in postproduction on An Ordinary Man, which stars Kingsley. It will be released later this year.
