A biopic on Jack Layton is currently being filmed in Winnipeg.

This made-for-television movie stars veteran Canadian actor Rick Roberts as the former NDP leader, while Definitely Not the Opera’s Sook-Yin Lee plays Olivia Chow.

The film is being co-produced by Pier 21 Films and Winnipeg’s Eagle Vision Inc., and is expected to air on CBC in 2013.

Olivia Chow was on-set this weekend as filming took place at the Manitoba Legislature. CBC caught up with Chow and Executive Producer Laszlo Barna to ask them about the film.
