#SPOTTED: MAX IRONS, BETSY BRANDT, JT NEAL, JILL SCOTT, MARIN IRELAND + MORE IN TORONTO FILMING
Filming once again is picking-up again in Toronto and many names are surfacing around the City in recent weeks after a bit of a winter lull.
Front and center is Drama Life in a Year starring Jaden Smith and Cara Delevingne, about a 17-year-old boy whom after learning that his girlfriend has one year to live, gives her an entire lifetime’s worth of experiences. Filming in and around the downtown core, Smith recently chopped off his long locks with the help of his famous father Will. He also last weekend was spotted at Coachella sporting his cropped do.

Also just beginning production is Lifetime‘s TV Movie Flint, directed by Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy, Mao’s Last Dancer) about a woman in Flint, Michigan dealing with its toxic water scandal and its impacts on her family.

We spotted stars Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad, Masters of Sex), singer Jill Scott and Marin Ireland (Hell or High Water, Toronto-made series The Divide) out tonight having dinner. Queen Latifah also recently was added to the cast and films through late May.
Another series set to begin filming is the first season of Condor.
