More details have been revealed about the film in production in the Cowichan Lake area last month.

In a press release, BuzzCuts Multimedia, the production company making the movie, described the film as a “low-budget independent thriller,” and has been given the codename “Blue Line” in order to keep details of the film a closely guarded secret.

“It’s not that we believe anyone is going to steal our idea or our script, but it’s more a matter of marketing,” co-producer Joseph Boutilier stated in the release.

“Once the title, the plot and other details are out there, we lose the opportunity to make a real splash. We want this film to come out of nowhere,” he said.

Boutilier said the community has welcomed the small cast and crew, which is  made up of less than 30 people.

“Local businesses have been so helpful, patient and just incredibly welcoming. This feels like a real home away from home. Some of our cast and crew have been talking about finding cottages out here because we love it so much,” he said.

Blue Line is expected to be released in February 2017.
