Abbie Cornish and Dermot Mulroney will star in the psychological thriller “Lavender” from director Ed Gass-Donnelly, with shooting starting later this month in Toronto.

AMBI Distribution is handling international sales, excluding Canada, where Pacific Northwest Pictures has distribution rights and will release the film. XYZ Films will handle domestic sales. “Lavender” will be introduced to buyers for the first time at Cannes.

Cornish will play a photographer struggling with severe memory loss. Strange clues among her photos begin to suggest that she may be responsible for the deaths of family members she never knew she had.

Gass-Donnelly is producing the film with Dave Valleau through Valleau’s South Creek Pictures banner. Andrea Iervolino and Lady Monika Bacardi’s AMBI Group is co-financing “Lavender” with Silvio Muraglia’s Paradox Studios, with additional financing provided by the Movie Network, Movie Central, the Harold Greenberg Fund and Telefilm Canada.

Iervolino, Bacardi and Muraglia are executive producers along with Jennifer Levine, Emily Alden and Tex Antonucci.

Mulroney and Cornish join Diego Klattenhoff (“The Blacklist,” “Homeland”) in the film, which is co-written by Gass-Donnelly and Colin Frizzell.

Cornish is represented by WME and Untitled Entertainment. Mulroney is represented by WME. Ed Gass-Donelly is repped by ICM and Untitled Entertainment.
