Irreverent will shoot the feature film sometime this summer. A co-production with an international partner who was to be announced at this month's Cannes film fest, the romantic comedy is about the patrons of a restaurant on Valentine's Day. O'Brien, Stern and Sutherland produce, with Monica Mitchell directing the script by Rick Dobran, based on his award-winning play. The cast includes legend Malcolm McDowell, Gina Chiarelli (Da Vinci's Inquest), Bruno Ganz (The Manchurian Candidate) and C.R.A.Z.Y.'s Marc-André Grondin. The inclusion of Grondin fits with one of the company's key strategies.
"For our English-Canadian projects to succeed, we need to begin bridging the West Coast to Quebec," says O'Brien. "We need to establish relationships there." The $8.5-million feature has funding from Telefilm Canada, The Harold Greenberg Fund, British Columbia Film, Movie Central and ThinkFilm, and will shoot entirely in Vancouver.
