The Long Walk starts filming in Birds Hill Provincial Park next week.

A new movie being shot in Birds Hill Provincial Park next week means people will need to use an alternate entrance to get in.

The province announced Thursday that the west gate entrance on Provincial Trunk Highway 59 will be closed from July 22 to July 26 as a film production is happening in the area.

Instead, people are being asked to use the east gate entrance on Provincial Road 206. For those coming from the north or south, detours will be in place.


There are opportunities for people to be part of a "major motion picture." MadLib Casting and Film Services has a casting call out for several different background roles in La Riviere and the surrounding area for the movie "The Long Walk" which is an adaptation of the Stephen King book of the same name.

They are looking for a male farmer role who appears 35 or older, a woman to play a farmer's wife who appears 30 or older and someone to play a farmer's daughter who is between the age of 13 and 17.
All those positions need to be available for Aug. 7.

They are also looking for people to sit on chairs, kids between the ages of six and 10 to play on a porch and a man to drive a pickup truck. They need to be available for Aug. 12 and 13.

They are paid roles and people can find more details online.

King Noir; new book about The Crime Fiction of Stephen King

King Noir, new book about The Crime Fiction of Stephen King by Tony Magistrale and Michael J. Blouin with contributions by Stephen King, and Charles Ardai. Released in hardback and paperback in April 2025.


Description

Over the past thirty years, Stephen King has received enormous attention from both the popular press as well as academics seeking to explain the unique phenomenon of his success. Books on King explore his canon in religious contexts, in political and historical contexts, in mythic—specifically Jungian—contexts, in Gothic/horror (especially American literary) contexts, and in a wide variety of other contexts appropriate to a writer who, over the past half century, has become “America’s Storyteller.” Beginning with a never-published chapter authored by Stephen King himself on the influence of the genre on his own writing, King Noir makes an invaluable contribution to King scholarship by placing King’s works in conversation with American crime fiction.

The Running Man About To Start Filming

In an interview with Indie Wire Glen Powell mentions that he is about to start filming Edgar Wright’s The Running Man, a much closer adaptation to King’s book than the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie.

Speaking of “The Running Man,” how did that happen?

It was so fun for me because I searched “Edgar Wright” in my email the other day, writing “Edgar.” We’ve been going back and forth on script stuff, and it’s so fun. The world that Edgar’s developed on this thing is just outrageous. It’s so good. And really, we’re just both such big fans of the Stephen King book, and it’s going to be a great character. I’m so fired up about it. But I searched my email, and I searched Edgar Wright in my email, and it came up: I had a wish list of directors that I wanted to work with in 2008 when I moved out to LA that I sent my agent at the time — and Edgar Wright is literally number one. I’m such an Edgar Wright man. And so, the fact that I get to work with him right now is just so damn cool.
