Where Was Netflix's The Adam Project Actually Filmed?

Starring Ryan Reynolds, Mark Ruffalo, Jennifer Garner, and Zoe Saldaña, "The Adam Project" is an adventure through time and space that follows a pilot named Adam Reed (Reynolds) as he attempts to find his missing wife, Laura (Saldaña). During his time travels, Adam winds up in the wrong year with a younger version of himself and the pair ultimately team up in a race against the clock to fix the damage done in the past. A hilarious reflection of his older self, young Adam is played by Walker Scobell, who was just announced as the lead actor in an exciting new Disney+ series based on Rick Riordan's "Percy Jackson & The Olympians" book series. "Get Out" star Catherine Keener playing a time-traveling villain in "The Adam Project" is another fun bonus.

"The Adam Project" is an upbeat, action-packed movie that features some well-choreographed fight scenes, bitter rivalries, and some down-to-earth family moments to tie it all together. While the setting of the film is left ambiguous, it includes a few outer space sequences, as well as some beautiful views of sprawling mountains and forests. If you're wondering where "The Adam Project" was filmed, then you're not alone.

The Adam Project was filmed in Canada

A Vancouver native, Ryan Reynolds got to take a trip back to his hometown to play Adam Reed. Filmmakers took advantage of several locations in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada when making "The Adam Project." For example, the scene where Adam overhears his mother, Ellie (Jennifer Garner), lamenting about her recent struggles was filmed at the Blarney Stone Pub on Carrall Street, and the scenes at Adam's father Louis' (Mark Ruffalo) workplace were filmed on campus at the University of British Columbia, via Netflix in Your Neighbourhood.

A lot of the action in the film takes place in and around the Reed family home, an airy, open-concept house nestled in a picturesque forest, or so it seems. The Reed house and the surrounding forest, thought up by production designer Claude Paré and his team, were actually a series of elaborate set pieces built on a soundstage in Vancouver. This strategy was employed so that scenes that take place at night could be shot during the day. Some of the trees were real, but some were constructed by Paré's team. The entire set took two months to create. The home's layout was left open for filming purposes, and the attention to detail in the decor is phenomenal; everything was chosen carefully to reflect where the characters are in their lives (via Tudum). It's really the small details in "The Adam Project" that make the film stand out.
