Film to star Speedman, Blanchard
TORONTO — Atom Egoyan’s next project will star Scott Speedman, Rachel Blanchard, Devon Bostick plus his wife and longtime muse, Arsinee Khanjian.
Egoyan described pic, titled “Adoration” and which begins lensing in Toronto in mid-September, as a drama that deals with teens navigating “this brave new world and how people can invent themselves, or re-invent themselves, through technology.”
The script for the C$5 million ($4.7 million) feature is “fluid,” just the way Egoyan said he likes it.
Executive produced by Robert Lantos, “Adoration” is produced by Egoyan and Simone Urdl and Jennifer Weiss, the duo who, along with Daniel Iron, produced Sarah Polley’s “Away From Her.”
Serendipity Point Films has worldwide distribution rights, excluding France, which ARP is handling.
