Toronto has starred as itself in films like Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Chloe while also standing in for cities like Chicago, New York, and played host to futuristic sets for Pacific Rim and Robocop. Now, the city is looking to score its own Internet Movie Database page to log its work in the industry.
The Toronto Film, Television and Digital Media Board will send a motion for consideration to the Economic Development Committee to set up a page on the popular website.
The indispensable IMDB has served as the web’s go-to location for casting information, trivia, plot summaries, and more since the mid-90s. You’ve probably leaned on it to settle an argument or two over the years.
Here’s a look at some of the notable films that were filmed in Toronto over the last 20 years.
The city’s film manager Eric Jensen told Metro it could be a “lengthy approval process” from IMDB.
However long it takes, it could be pretty cool if Toronto starts a trend of cities making the move to have filming locations more easily searchable on IMDB.
