The Vernon area will be standing in for Italy in a new action film currently shooting in the area.

The production titled Peace is set at the end of the Second World War. The Okanagan Film Commission says the action thriller follows American soldiers as they “set out on the grueling ascent of an Italian mountainside… haunted by their evil sergeant’s cold-blooded murder of a young woman and with an old Italian man of uncertain loyalties as their guide.”
