Originally The Power had planned to start production in Vancouver in the Spring of 2020 but the Covid-19 pandemic put a stop to that.
Instead production on The Power started in the U.K. in 2021 with the Leslie Mann and Tim Robbins (since recast) spotted on set and filmed in a number of locations including Fairford, Lechlade, a large convent on the outskirts of Bowdsey and the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre in south London.. From the U.K., The Power went on to film in South Africa.
And finally Vancouver last summer.
