Where was Nobody filmed? Guide to ALL the Filming Locations

Posted by

Nobody was filmed in Winnipeg, Canada, but where is it set? Nobody seems to care about its setting. Who would be interested in an overlooked, average city inhabited by a middle-aged, common guy like Hutch Mansell?

Bob Odenkirk (the ineffable lawyer from Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad) plays Hutch "Nobody" Mansell, an underestimated, ordinary man, who transforms into a combination of John Wick and Michael Douglas in Falling Down with MacGiver skills.

Nobody location

The movie was written by Derek Kolstad, who also wrote the first three John Wick films. This gives us hope for a crossover between Keanu Reeves' franchise and a future sequel of this action thriller that doubles as a black comedy.

If you want to know everything there is to know about Nobody filming locations, look no further. We have everything right here:


Nobody house
The harmonious Mansell family home was filmed at a private residence, which is a cul-de-sac house located in the Whyte Ridge residential suburb in Winnipeg at 20 Shillingstone Rd.

Please be considerate to the owners of the property or Queen Hippolyta will throw you in the garbage bin (Hutch's wife Becca, actress Connie Nielsen, is best known for her role in Wonder Woman).

The home's interior was filmed on a soundstage. By the way, I would have taken the lasagna to the basement, what a waste!

Williams Manufacturing Company
The Williams Manufacturing Company had made it 204 days without an accident before it turned into a sort of John Wick location.

The warehouse is actually the Ducharme Bros. Design facilities, a furniture maker in the Logan area of Winnipeg (935 Henry Ave). The Arlington Street Bridge, featured in several shots, is on the other side if you turn the camera 180 degrees.

Bob Odenkirk as Hutch Mansell
It seems clear that the former 'auditor' loves public transport. There is a shot with Hutch on the bus (a bit like the scene in the Joker), passing by the historical Bank of Montreal on Winnipeg's Main Street.

Did you recognize Hutch's father, David? Christopher Lloyd played Doc Brown in the Back to the Future trilogy.

Filming Location in Winnipeg
The film crew transformed the storefront of the luggage store U.N. Luggage at 175 McDermot Ave into the exterior of the tattoo parlor.

Scene of the bus
The bus scene, including the crash and the fight, was filmed on location at Princess Street and Elgin Avenue in downtown Winnipeg.

I hope they like hospital food... the medical center was filmed at the Misericordia Health Centre.

Nobody city
Nobody’s establishing shots are seemingly random. When Yulian is introduced, the aerial footage is from Hollywood Boulevard and Highland in Los Angeles (pictured).

The First National Bank Building tower, built in 1927, is easy to recognize. However, later on in the film, another establishing shot shows the St. Paul skyline in Minnesota.

The Malina club
The Russian lair, the Malina, is actually the 441Main nightclub located at 441 Main St. This event venue with pop art, lounge areas, and a cocktail bar was hosted in a beautiful two-story building.

I say ‘was’ because, unfortunately, the company that operated it announced the club’s closure in April 2020. Not due to the Russian mob, but the quarantine restrictions in the city.

The Obshak hall
Yulian Kuznetsov (played by Aleksei Serebryakov) is the babysitter of the Obshak, the Russian gangsters’ communal fund.

The Obshak was located at The Millenium Centre on Main Street. This former Canadian Imperial Bank building contains a magnificent glass dome in the hall, which is also featured in the film.

Nobody drehorte
A section of the car chase sequence was filmed on Main Street, but the alley scene was shot near the old police station at McDermot Avenue, between Adelaide and Princess Street.

Don't miss the post credits-scene! Harry Mansell, Hutch's half-brother, is played by the rapper and filmmaker RZA.

All the cars have Ohio plates and the bus is a Toledo (Ohio) TARTA bus.

Establishing shots of Portland, St Paul, and LA.

I drove the bus in the non-action shots. The bus was a low-floor flyer from Saskatchewan or Alberta- not sure of the city.

Great movie. Just as good as John Wick 1. Whoever would have thought that Odenkirk was a badass. I'm talking about taking on five younger guys in a small space setting and just kicking the living shit out of each one of them.

You would think that with all the money he made on Breaking Bad, he could afford the very best the wig guys could offer. Instead, his wig is something that almost anyone would take notice of and become lunchtime fodder.

Once again, the casting agent got every choice down to perfection. From Hutch's little girl to the father-in-law and brother-in-law, the choices were spot on. So whether you watch it now for $5.99, or earlier at $19.99 or see it the drive-in or limited theaters.

This is not a movie you can afford to miss. From start to finish. One of the best made action movies, with a grade A+ cast. This is a great movie to watch. I'm on my 6th time.
