Filming wrapped today for the TV show Nikita. The show was shooting at 14 William St, and the crew was enormous. Trucks spread up and down Rosemount, William and Elm.
Nikita is based on the older Canadian TV show of the same name, which is based on the American movie Point of No Return, which is based on the French movie from 1990, Nikita, which was actually quite good. If it’s at all true to the original, it’s about a troubled young woman who is recruited to the secret service to do high kicks in short dresses. In a word: awesome.
Becky Winder, the owner of the house, was sympathetic about the impact the show was having on her neighbours. She said, “It does benefit Weston but is a large pain.” Weston is a popular location, too, she said; “filming in Weston has been going on since I first bought my present home, 26 years ago.”
