A few weeks ago, we heard that the Inception crew was packing their bags and heading north to a snow fortess in Kananaskis, Canada. The image that we saw earlier of this “abandoned ski hill” reminded some of us about the mountainous locations in Batman Begins. Anyways, we’ve been pretty clueless as to what has been happening up in Canada mainly because they’ve deployed a 24/7 security team around the filming location’s perimeter. The Calgary Herald reports that, that atop this snow mountain, Christopher Nolan wants the entire cast to learn to ski.
“He wanted all of the actors that were involved here, (Nolan) wanted them to learn to ski,” says Matt Mosteller, a professional ski coach and vice-president of marketing and sales for Resorts of the Canadian Rockies, which owns Nakiska, as well as B.C. resorts Fernie and Kimberley.
“He’s super detail-oriented . . . (Nolan) wants everything right. If you’re portraying it, you’ve got to be able to do it.”
Exactly how much of the movie involves high-speed ski chase scenes with automatic weapons will likely remain a mystery until its release next year.
