    Here's a wiki link with ome information:

    Sorry, my last post was inaccurate. The submarine accident occurred around the same time as the filming of Continuum was but not related to it. You can see the news article here:

    Did anyone notice that at the very end of the closing credits it says 2 people died making this movie? Apparently there was some kind of accident involving the submarine that was under the Arctic ice cap. Does anyone have more info. about this?

    Yes. There was a bunch of Batman stuff ahead of it, but I didn't really pay much attention to it.

    Thanks, Jumper. I wondered why there was so little Jack and did feel quite cheated at the way his role was hyped in the promos and his actual role. It made no sense from a story POV, so unavailability makes sense.

    from BW's Q&A on Joe's blog
    Anonymous J writes: “Question for Mr Wright: I really, really enjoyed Continuum - have rewatched several times and can happily pass this around my family with very few caveats. One puzzling thing: why the casting of Ben B as his grandfather? I have to say, with his distinctive voice and face, it immediately took me out of the story for those scenes. I kept wondering, why didn’t they just hire someone who resembles him? So…why was that?”

    BW: We did it because it was fun. For Ben and for the audience who recognized him.

    Aurora Novum writes: “1. Actually, the saddest part of the movie (outside of Mitchell’s…er ending) was that the team accepted being separated from each other for a year. I wondered why you chose that long a time period before Ba’al’s “arrival”, and why the team, in your view, appeared to actually abide by the terms of the agreement.”

    BW: Because it would have been too much of a coincidence for Baal to show up right away. And Landry had a damn good point.

    “2. In a similar vein, how much do you find your story is dictated by the production environment, and how much is it your initial brainstorming/vision? For example, I understand Daniel’s injury in the Continuum movie was added because of Michael Shanks filming unavailability, but I wondered why the injury wasn’t dealt with much overtly (i.e. therapy, limitations in walking) outside of CGI shots or an occasional limp. Could you discuss the reasoning for those decisions?”

    BW: We see him without his leg three times. As for his limping, we realized that in a year, he would become quite proficient with his artificial leg.

    “3. What was your reaction/thoughts about the jets made available to you by the USAF? Can you share anything about that experience?”

    BW: Cool. I’m the escort pilot in the movie. You can see it’s me pretty clearly, and it’s my voice too. That’s how much I like jets.

    ChevronSeven writes: “How much feedback (good, bad or indifferent) have you received with the reaction to the actual screen time of RDA (about 2 minutes in the beginning, 2 minutes in the middle & 1 minute at the end) in Continuum? It appeared via promos and interviews that “Jack is back!” only to be disappointed with the actual screen time upon viewing.”

    BW: That’s all I could get him for. He’ll be much more involved in the next one.

    Yes. Basically at the beginning of the movie was the Ba'al captured by the Tok'ra and the one that went back in time. The AU Mitchell killed the the time traveling Ba'al and the orginal Ba'al was killed by the extracation cermony. The alternate timeline in Continiuum was essentialy non-existent when Mitchell shot Ba'al.
