Ganatra to helm Cameron-penned pic
First Look Media has acquired international sales rights to romantic comedy “Cake.” Pic, to star Heather Graham and David Sutcliffe, starts shooting May 25 in Toronto.
Tassie Cameron scripted the tale of a free-spirited travel-adventure writer (Graham) who finds her relationship-phobic ways put to the test when she is asked to take over her father’s business and edit a conservative wedding magazine.
Nisha Ganatra will direct pic, being financed by Telefilm Canada and First Look. Pic is produced by Miranda de Pencier and executive produced by Jennifer Jonas.
First Look will be pre-selling pic at this year’s fest.
FLI’s upcoming slate includes “Stateside,” directed by Reverge Anselmo and starring Rachael Leigh Cook, Jonathan Tucker and Val Kilmer; Sundance pic “September Tapes,” directed by Christian Johnston; and “Dungeons and Dragons 2,” directed by Gerry Lively.
