If you need to be caught up, The Mother is a new Netflix thriller focusing on a female mother/assassin who comes out of hiding to protect her daughter from dangerous men. Since our initial announcement, a few other notable names have joined the cast as well.

Gael García Bernal (Mozart in the Jungle), Omari Hardwick (Army of the Dead), and Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid’s Tale) will be joining Lopez.

Basically, we’ve got a real mixed bag to work with, and we’re excited!

Production kicked off last week in downtown Vancouver, but is set to last until early 2022. Keep your eyes peeled folks- you might just see an A-list celeb working (or relaxing) around the city over the next few weeks/months!
