Principal photography has begun on Daniel Adams’ period romantic comedy The Lightkeepers starring Richard Dreyfuss and Blythe Danner.

Toronto-based Cinemavault holds Canadian and international rights and is introducing the project to buyers in Cannes.

The Lightkeepers tells the story of a lighthouse keeper and his mysterious assistant who have sworn off women but must confront two attractive females who move into a nearby summer cottage. Tom Wisdom, Mamie Gummer and Bruce Dern also star.

Adams wrote the screenplay with Larry Frenzel, who is producing through his Birchwood Pictures label with Penelope L Foster and Harris Tulchin.

Cinemavault is also handling international sales on Adam’s last feature, The Golden Boys.
