The Hour is a star.

Hard Core Logo is arguably among the best Canadian films ever made.

The Mockumentary is about a famous punk rock band getting together for a final tour that ends in disaster. This 15 year old film has a loyal cult following. The first film stars Hugh Dillon(Flashpoint), Callum Keith Rennie (Battlestar Galactica) John Pyper-Ferguson (*Score: A Hockey Musical) and Julian Richings (in both HCL's among many other things) .

So this year Bruce MacDonald, the busiest film director in Canada, just finished filming
Hard Core Logo 2.

The second film focuses on a punk rock band channeling the spirit of Hugh Dillon's character Joe Dick from the first film. It stars Bucky Haight (Julian Richings), who is the bands mentor in the original, becomes one of the major characters in the new film. Care Failure and her band Die Mannequin play themselves — they’re recording an album with Bucky while Bruce MacDonald, who plays the documentary director, documents it.

The principal filming of the sequel was done in Watrous and Manitou Beach, about 120 kilometres southeast of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
