CBC filming Jack Layton movie

Filming is underway on a movie about Jack Layton's life starring Rick Roberts as the late NDP leader and Sook-Yin Lee as his wife, NDP MP Olivia Chow..
Smilin' Jack: The Jack Layton Story is being shot in Winnipeg. The cast also includes Wendy Crewson and Erin Karpluk, who stars on CBC's Being Erica.
 Layton died of cancer last summer, only months after leading the NDP to its most successful election result in its history.
(Seems a bit soon for a movie about the guy. Watch for the backlash. -- ed)
