James Franco movie shooting in Toronto right now

Toronto didn't get the name Hollywood North for nothing. Our city's a hotspot for those working on both big budget and independent television and movie projects because it's cheaper to film here and it can easily stand in for places like New York, Chicago and Boston.

Earlier today, the Toronto Police Operations Twitter account warned Scarborough residents that there was a movie shoot going on at Kingston and Galloway Roads.


The movie in question is Kin, a sci-fi thriller starring James Franco, Zoe Kravitz, Jack Reynor and Dennis Quaid. Jonathan and Josh Baker are directing.

The filming continues into early December.
