Film set coming down in Agassiz

Wayward Pines filming set to be demolished next week

Plans have changed once again for the production team of Wayward Pines.

It was announced last week that cast and crew members would be back in town later this month to re-shoot a few scenes for the dramatic, 10-episode series.

That would have meant the set would remain in place until after Canada Day. The District of Kent has been working on ways to hold Canada Day celebrations as a street party.

However, location manager David Tamkin said that it turned out one of the lead actors is not available for the dates chosen for the filming action. So, rather than overstay their welcome, he said they made the decision to move ahead with demolishing the set. When they return in late summer or early fall, they will use visual effects to recreate the backdrop, post production.

Set demolition will begin next week, Tamkin said. The set took about a month to build, and includes an entire street facade complete with stores and walkup entrances.

A full park restoration will take place after the set comes down. It’s been estimated that the park restoration will take about two weeks.

Wayward Pines will star Matt Dillon, Carla Gugino, Terrence Howard and Melissa Leo and is set to air later this year.

The storyline follows Matt Dillon’s character, a Secret Service agent who arrives in Wayward Pines, Idaho, in search of two federal agents who have gone missing in the bucolic town. He soon learns that he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive.
