For once, Montreal will play herself…

Blades of Glory

…as she will be the host of the next Olympic Games Wintersports in the movie Blades of Glory starring Will Ferrell and Jon Heder. Both will be playing skaters who were ejected from their sport for fighting during the medals ceremony at the Stockholm Wintersports. Desperate to return to the limelight, they take advantage of a legal loophole that allows them to participate in the couples competition. You can pretty much guess the rest of plot from here.

Blades of Glory

Nevetheless, I’ll be there at the premiere. After seeing the Big O’s tower in the second shot, I’m especially curious to see what they did with my two pictures.

    Montreal also played herself in THE SCORE with Robert Dinero, Ed Norton, and Marlon Brando.

    I recently saw Last Exit, a not so remarkable US film, that is shot in Montreal, but they don’t hide that fact. Addresses on envelopes are in Montreal, street names used are familiar etc. Funny is that every Montrealer (even the cops) speaks English, and all the traffic signs are also in English. The car scenes are really amazing because you go from downtown to the west island to Decarie in three cuts.
