An agreement for the Canadian location depends in part on the British Columbia government granting the project tax incentives, which North Carolina denied the production.

The Vancouver deal would come as North Carolina faces pressure from the entertainment industry over a law passed last month that bars local Lgbt anti-discrimination ordinances. The state law renders null a local Charlotte law intended to protect Lgbt people from discrimination.

Lionsgate is one of several entertainment-industry companies to take a public stand in opposition to the state law, joining Turner Broadcasting, 21st Century Fox, A+E Networks and others in threatening to keep future productions out of the state. “We will be hard pressed to continue our relationship with North Carolina if this regressive law remains on the books, »
