Family Film About Kids Rescuing Ferrets In California Shooting in Langley.
On Friday, August 3, 2012 — Canadian film director, Alison Parker, is bringing her cast and crew for the upcoming feature film The Ferret Squad to Langley, British Columbia, Canada to film a promotional trailer for the film, which is slated to begin production this month.
The trailer will be filmed over four days, August 6, 7, 8 & 9 and the final product will run approximately three minutes. The promotional trailer will then be shown to potential investors in the hopes that they will want to contribute to the making of the feature.
“We will be filming at locations in Langley and Fort Langley for the trailer. I’m especially excited about filming in Fort Langley. It’s a great little town with a lot of character and a wide variety of shooting locations, houses, scenery, etc. It’s a very popular place to film. The first day we went on a location scout, we saw them filming Once Upon a Time. The second time we went, they were filming Psych,” says Parker.
The Ferret Squad is a family-friendly feature that tells the story of Max Jones, played by Jake and Jasper: A Ferret Tale star Connor Stanhope (Connor also played the role of young “Lex Luthor” on the TV series Smallville) In the story, Max is a teenage boy who must move to California with his father, Ben (Canadian Award Winning Actor Chad Willett, The Locket, Joan of Arc); he then realizes that Digger, his pet ferret, won’t be able to come along because ferrets are illegal. Max finds a way to sneak Digger across the border, and thinks his troubles are over. In his new home state, Max meets and joins forces with a group of quirky kids known as “The Ferret Squad” who spend their summer days rescuing and fostering illegal ferrets. When Animal Control plans to destroy some confiscated ferrets, Max and the Ferret Squad go on a desperate mission to save the poor animals by transporting them across the border with the law and their parents in hot pursuit.
The movie also boasts an impressive cast that includes, in addition to Stanhope and Willett, Canadian Award Winning actress Julia Benson (best known as “Lt Vanessa James” on the TV Series SGU Stargate Universe), Canadian Award Winning Actor Cainan Weibe, whose acting credits include roles in The Sandlot 3 (“Ryan”), Sucker Punch (“Tommy Boy”), The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (“Newborn Boy”), Falling Skies (“Marshall”), and Diary of a Wimpy Kid (“Quentin”), Eric McNamee (“Gus” on the Cartoon Network’s “Level Up”), Clive Holloway (“Maurice” on the UK TV Show “Beaver Falls”), Sean Michael Kyer (who has appeared on the TV shows “Alcatraz”, “Fringe” and “Continuum”), Dylan Schmid (“Baelfire” on the TV Series “Once Upon A Time”), Sierra Pitkin (Juno), Jake and Jasper: A Ferret Tale alumnus Blu Mankuma (“Harry Helmsley”, 2012), Award Winning Canadian Actress Gabrielle Rose (Excited), Michael Roberds (“Uncle Fester” on the TV Series The New Addams Family), Conner Dwelly (“Young Patricia Swan” on Smallville and “Morraine” on ABC TV’s Once Upon A Time), breakout star Emma Tremblay (will be starring with Matt Damon in the upcoming film Elysium) and Falcor the Ferret (Jake and Jasper: A Ferret Tale).
