Rosamund Pike in Montreal filming Barneys Version

According to The Montreal Gazette, Rosamund Pike is currently filming the upcoming independent film, Barney's Version in Montreal, Canada this week, while her current big budget film Surrogates with Bruce Willis opens nationwide in U.S. theaters tomorrow! She plays the character Miriam Greenberg, Barney’s third and final wife, and the love of his life.

Barney’s Version is directed by Richard Lewis who co-wrote and directed Whale Music, and spent the past nine years as an executive producer, writer and director on the hit crime series CSI. The screenplay is by Michael Konyves and the flick is produced by former Montrealer Robert Lantos, whose previous credits include Eastern Promises, Being Julia and Black Robe. The co-producers are Montreal’s Lyse Lafontaine, Italian producer Domenico Procacci and Lantos’s son Ari Lantos.

The production will move to New York City for a week of shooting after production wraps here and, along the way, there will also be some filming in the countryside near Montreal. A spokesman for the production wouldn’t say where exactly filming would take place in the country but it’s a good bet it’ll be somewhere near Lake Memphremagog in the Eastern Township given that a good chunk of the novel takes place in that stunningly-beautiful part of the world.

On this day, they were shooting the scene in which Miriam, played by British actress Rosamund Pike, breaks the news to her now ex-husband that she doesn't want to ever see him again.

British actress Rosamund Pike - who played a baddie in the James Bond picture Die Another Day and Keira Knightley's older sister in Pride and Prejudice - began work on Barney's Version only last week and the shoot got off in intense fashion. On her first day, she filmed the scene in which Barney meets her for the first time (at his second wedding). The next day they shot, in the Ritz garden, the poignant moment when she breaks the news to Barney that they can no longer even be friends.

"The book is about versions of the truth and he finally finds his truth with Miriam,'' said Pike. "She's the person who represents truth and straightforwardness because life for her is black-and-white. She's very moral and, finally, Barney lets her down.''
