EXCLUSIVE: Myriad Pictures is reuniting with Ruba Nadda, producer Daniel Iron and their Cairo Time star Patricia Clarkson on October Gale.
Kirk D’Amico’s company has secured world sales on the Canadian thriller and has been introducing to buyers at the EFM.
Principal photography is set to kick off in spring with Toronto-based Iron of Blue Ice Pictures producing with David Collins of Ireland’s Samson Films.
Myriad chief D’Amico is an executive produce with Killer Films’ Christine Vachon and Emily Alden of Canada’s Pacific Northwest Pictures.
