Location manager Catou Kearney’s scouts scoured B.C. for three months to find the right forest for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
Kearney, shooting location manager for the sci-fi blockbuster that opened Friday, knew exactly what she needed.
The forests for the latest Apes movie had to look older and wilder than the Burnaby woods used in the movie’s predecessor, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which was shot in B.C. in 2011. The new movie is set 10 years later than the first film.
