Director Joe Carnahan's production on his original screenplay The Grey has started in Smithers with production crews creating a locational set on Hudson Bay Mountain and a second shooting location at the Smithers Airport. The cast is led by Liam Neeson and features Dallas Roberts, James Badge Dale, Dermot Mulroney, Frank Grillo, Nonso Anozie and Joe Anderson. The story follows a crew of oil-rig roughnecks led by Neeson and left stranded by a plane crash right in the hunting zone of a pack of rogue wolves on the frozen Alaskan tundra. Here’s what director Carnahan has to say about his latest project: “The wolves have a territorial range of 300 miles, and they will run you out if you cross that. If you’re within 30 miles of their den as is the case here, they will try to kill you."

The Smithers District Chamber of Commerce, Tourism Smithers and the Bulkley Valley Economic Development Authority had area promotional material prepared for the cast and crew including menus from all area restaurants, personal services and recreational opportunities to take part in during their stay. The group also prepared window decals that welcomed the cast and crew and provided them to businesses throughout Smithers. We're thrilled to host the cast and crew and showcase our wonderful community.
