In a pre-Cannes announcement, Aaron Paul has come on board suspense-drama “The Parts You Lose,” to be shot in the Manitoba province of Canada in the fourth quarter.

Myriad Pictures will launch international sales at Cannes of the German-Canadian co-production.

Dutch director Paula van der Oest is directing “The Parts You Lose.” The project reteams “Breaking Bad” actor Paul with producer Mark Johnson, one of the executive producers on the series.

The story centers on an 8-year-old, hearing-impaired boy, who encounters an injured and potentially dangerous fugitive in his small North Dakota town.

The movie will be produced by Johnson and Tom Williams through their Gran Via Productions. Paul will produce through his company Lucid Road Productions. Buffalo Gal Pictures will be the Canadian co-producer, with Buffalo Gal’s Phyllis Laing and Rhonda Baker producing.

Myriad CEO Kirk D’Amico and Pacific Northwest Pictures’ Emily Alden will exec produce. Pacific Northwest Pictures will distribute the film in Canada.

Paul is repped by UTA.
