Parallel Movie with Martin Wallström Filming in Vancouver

Martin Wallstrom stars in Parallel

Parallel, a sci-fi feature with Mr. Robot’s Martin Wallström started filming in Vancouver and British Columbia last week.

After just wrapping up production of Tully with Charlize Theron last month, BC-based Bron Studios is onto the next one. Production on Parallel, a sci-fi feature directed by Isaac Ezban, began in Vancouver and area last week. Ezban is a Mexico-born filmmaker best known for The Incident (2014) and The Similars (2015); both sci-fi thrillers which he wrote, directed and produced.

Parallel follows a group of young app developers who find their way into a parallel universe full of future tech that they decide to bring back home with them. In an interview with Variety, Ezban described the film as “Flatliners meets The Social Network, classic sci-fi with a modern sci-fi touch.”
