A sordidly good time was had by all during production of “A Very Sordid Wedding”, which wrapped principal photography on May 14th, 2016, after a whirlwind two-week shoot in the Winnipeg/Selkirk/Headingley areas. US-based producer Emerson Collins and director/writer Del Shores brought their sequel to the popular “Sordid Lives” 2000 feature film and follow-up 2008 television series to the Canadian prairies, doubling for sweltering Winters, Texas.
Returning from the series and/or movie were stars Bonnie Bedelia (TV’s Parenthood, Die Hard), Caroline Rhea (Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Phineas and Ferb), Leslie Jordan (Will and Grace) and Dale Dickey (Justified, True Blood.) In addition, the cast, crew and the town of Selkirk were also treated to a one-day appearance by none other than Whoopi Goldberg in a cameo role.
Director Shores raved about the locations, the crew and Buffalo Gal Pictures, enthusing: “Amazing company! I just finished working on A Very Sordid Wedding with them. Best crew ever! Best experience of my film career! Thank you ALL for seeing my vision and helping me tell my Sordid story!”
