Imogen Poots Starring in Drama ‘Mobile Homes’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Imogen Poots is starring in the Canadian-French drama “Mobile Homes,” Variety has learned exclusively.

Producers are Mike MacMillan, founder of Lithium Studios Productions; Fréderic de Goldschmidt, owner of Madeleine Films; and Eric Dupont, founder of Incognito Films. “Mobile Homes” is currently being filmed in and around the Niagara Falls area.

The movie is adapted from the short film with the same title. “Mobile Homes” is written and directed by Vladimir de Fontenay (“Memoria”). Benoit Soler, whose credits include 2013 Cannes Caméra d’Or winner “Ilo Ilo,” is the director of photography.

The story follows a young woman drifting from one motel to the next with her dangerously intoxicating boyfriend and her 8-year-old son. After a crisis rips their lives apart, she lands in a mobile home community, where the promise of a new beginning for her son forces her to reexamine the very meaning of motherhood.

“Mobile Homes” was developed by de Goldschmidt (“The Other Son”) of Madeleine Films in Paris.

“This project gets more exciting every day,” said MacMillan, “Imogen is an incredible talent, helping to bring this unique, exhilarating world to life.”

“Frank & Lola,” which starred Poots and Michael Shannon, sold to Universal for $2 million following its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. Poots’ credits include “Jimi: All Is by My Side,” “The Look of Love” and “Need for Speed.”

His output has been all over the place, from early Lynchian quirkfests to the very middle-of-the-road inspirational dramedy “The Astronaut Farmer,” not to [...]
