Following a very successful Kickstarter campaign where they raised nearly three times their target, the folks behind Corner Gas: The Movie have started work on the 90-minute feature that will be released in November. Don't worry fans, just because this is a fancy film production doesn't mean they'll be shooting in exotic locales like Vancouver or Toronto, as shooting began yesterday in Regina and Roleau, Saskatchewan. 

“The entire cast is back and we are all so thrilled to be shooting in Saskatchewan,” said Executive Producer Virginia Thompson. “We look forward to bringing our fans a Corner Gas movie they will cherish for years to come!”

What would a big movie be without some huge guest stars? Confirmed for cameo roles are 
Graham Greene (The Green Mile, Dances with Wolves), Don Lake (Life with Bonnie, Waiting for Guffman), and Reagan Pasternak (Being Erica, Welcome to Mooseport); comedian Will Sasso (MADtv, Best in Show); and sports commentators Darren “Dutchy” Dutchyshen (SportsCentre), Jay Onrait (Fox Sports Live) and Dan O’Toole (Fox Sports Live). 

And of course, the plot has to be as big as the film itself. The film takes place f
ive years after the show eneded, and there’s still not a lot going on 40 kilometers from nowhere. But that’s all about to change as the fine folks of Dog River, Saskatchewan face their biggest crisis ever. Brent and the gang discover that the town’s been badly mismanaged, leaving residents with little choice but to pack up and leave. As residents make one last rally to save Dog River as they know it, they discover a devious plan by a corporate giant that would change life for Dog Riverites forever.

Corner Gas: The Movie will roll out as a national multi-platform event in November and December. The landmark feature film will open with an exclusive Cineplex Front Row Centre Events theatrical debut across Canada, followed by premieres on The Movie Network, CTV, and The Comedy Network, and complemented by a special collector’s edition DVD to be available for purchase before the holidays.
