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!”

Reviews

"There are a lot of great actors to be found in this movie, and far too many to mention. Who steals the show, however, is Geiger. If an award were to be handed out this year for Best Actor, Geiger deserves to win. His portrayal of Vendeski is flat-out superb, and quite an eye-opener. He brings such life into his sinister, crazed-out cult-leader character, flawlessly tackling this task. His facial expressions and line-delivery are spot-on. Geiger’s Vendeski will scare and creep-out any unsuspecting viewer, and even cause a few chuckles along the way."
