Chi-town fans be on the look out, because after filming ‘The Dilemma‘ in your city earlier this year, Channing Tatum has headed your way again. Chan’s romantic drama ‘The Vow‘ packed up shop in the Canadian city of Toronto, Ontario and has moved on to Chicago for the next week to wrap up filming on the movie. After two months away, the busy actor will finally head back home to Cali late next week.

For those who don’t know, ‘The Vow‘ stars Chan, Rachel McAdams, Scott Speedman, Jessica McNamee, Sam Neill, and two-time Academy Award winner Jessica Lange.

The film is based on a true story about a young woman (played by Rachel) who loses all recent memory in a car accident and struggles to rebuild her identity and remember her husband (played by Chan). Speedman will play McAdams’ former fiance, with whom she begins to rekindle a romance in her amnesiac state, and Jessica plays McAdams’ estranged younger sister in the film.

The Vow‘ is the real-life story of Arizona couple Kim and Krickitt Carpenter, which is chronicled in a book called “The Vow: The Kim and Krickitt Carpenter Story‘ and dates from 1993, two months after their marriage, when their car was hit from behind by a truck.

Screen Gems Studios is co-financing the movie with Spyglass Entertainment (who’s both producing and distributing the Michael Sucsy-directed film). Sucsy, who directed HBO’s award-winning film ‘Grey Gardens’, rewrote the movie’s script.

The production started filming in Toronto on August 30th and fans reported filming in numerous areas of the Canadian town, including the intersections of College/George and Queen/Ossington and on Baldwin Avenue and Saint Clair Avenue West. The production was also spotted in the Toronto Financial District and at the Golden Turtle Restaurant, City Hall, and The Roastery Coffee House over the past few weeks.

The Vow‘ will hit theaters some time in 2011 or 2012. Fans can check out the latest pics of Chan on the Toronto set, hanging around the city, and taking photos with fans in the CTU Photo Gallery.
