Holm wrote the script for Game Over, Man! from a story he conceptualized with Newacheck, Anderson and Devine. The plot of the movie hasn’t been revealed yet, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, it’s described as “Die Hard in a hotel”.
The group took in the last Canucks home game of the season on Saturday night vs. the Edmonton Oilers. Blake, who was proudly representing a Canucks hoodie, shared this photo via his Instagram:
Game Over, Man! officially kicked off production on Wednesday, with their signs “GOM” spotted near the former Safeway Warehouse near 11th Avenue and 16th Street in Burnaby; thanks @michelle_jung for spotting them! With studio space continuing to be a challenge, that warehouse has been a very popular spot for productions – including Prison Break, Legion and Supernatural.
