According to the location manager of North Van's Elegy Film Productions Inc., sequences for the feature "Elegy" will be filmed late night, May 8, at 216 Abbott Street in Vancouver's famed 'Gastown' district.

From 7:00 PM to 2:00 AM, both interior/exterior scenes will be filmed at 'Jules Restaurant', with scenes of actors entering and talking inside.

Illuminating the outside area, production will have a lift with a light on the east side of 200 Abbott Street, with several other lights positioned along the 200 block.

Based on the novel by author Philip Roth, "Elegy" stars actress Penélope Cruz as 'Consuela Castillo', alongside actors Ben Kingsley, Dennis Hopper and Patricia Clarkson.

Also known by the working title "Elegy: Dying Animal", premise of the film focuses on 'cultural' critic 'David Kepesh', who finds his life thrown into tragic disarray by Castillo (Cruz), a well-mannered student who awakens a forbidden sense of sexuality in her teacher.

"Elegy" will be released November 2007.
