Scott Speedman signs up for indie ‘Edwin’

“Edwin Boyd” is exec produced by Kirk D’Amico of Myriad Pictures, who also holds international rights, and Daniel Iron (“Away from Her”) of Foundry Films. Entertainment One will distribute the film in Canada.

Film’s based on the true story of a WWII vet and family man turned bank robber, torn between the need to provide for his young family and an unfulfilled dream to head to Hollywood to become a star. He discovers a way to satisfy both needs  –  robbing banks “Hollywood style”  –  but that leads him down an unexpected path of danger and tragedy.

Morlando and Black developed the script over a dozen years with Morlando gaining access to much of Boyd’s  personal life.

Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corp.

Euclid 431 Pictures is run by Black and Morlando (“Countdown”). Other titles in development include political thriller “The Lion’s Share,” detective thriller “The Devil is Black” and romantic comedies “Celia” and “Walking Gun.”
