Production is scheduled to begin production today (October 14) in Vancouver in association with British Columbia-based Brightlight Pictures. Neon will distribute in the US.
QC Entertainment will co-finance the film with Raymond Mansfield and Sean McKittrick producing and Edward H. Hamm Jr. serving as executive producer. Neon will co-finance and serve as executive producer.
Megan Suri (pictured, Netflix’s Never Have I Ever, upcoming Searching 2), Neeru Bajwa, Vik Sahay and Betty Gabriel (Get Out) will star and principal photography in Vancouver kicks off in association with British Columbia-based Brightlight Pictures. Neon will distribute in the US.
Dutta’s short Life In Color premiered at Cannes Film Festival Emerging Filmmaker Showcase in 2018. His recent short Inferno was seen by James Wan, who has signed him to direct an upcoming horror film at New Line.
