The Warner Brothers TV series will be filming this week in downtown Vancouver and the shoot involves “significant action.”

A resident notification letter from Renraw Production Services states that filming will take place at the intersection of Melville and Thurlow streets on Thursday, Nov. 7. The letter notes that minimal crew will prepare for the set throughout the day, and that after 8 p.m. they will begin filming stunt scenes. These scenes call for the use of exposed weapons, a van that crashes into a motorcycle and atmospheric smoke. However, there won’t be any gunfire.

Exterior driving and stunt scenes will be filmed at the 1000-block Melville Street, the 500- and 600-blocks Thurlow Street. Affected areas will also include the 1000-block Dunsmuir Street, the 500-block of Burrard Street, the 600-block of Hallstone Street, as well as the laneways north and south of 1100 Melville St. As a result, motorists and pedestrians can expect delays moving through these areas.

Vancouver police will assist with intermittent traffic control between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. and there will be a full road closure after 9 p.m.

Filming is set to continue overnight until 6 a.m. Friday.
