Summit Entertainment has scheduled April 21 to start production on dot the i, an urban love triangle story starring rising Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal, (Y Tu Mama Tambien, Amores Perros).
Award-winning novelist and screenwriter Matthew Parkhill makes his writer-director debut on the project, from UK production company Arcane Pictures. The cast also includes Natalia Verbeke (Son Of The Bride, Jump Tomorrow) and James d'Arcy, star of TV's Nicolas Nickleby and Peter Weir's upcoming Far Side Of The World.
Verbeke plays a young woman who, on the eve of her wedding, is torn between the safety of her fiance (d'Arcy) and a passionate new romance with Kit (Bernal).
Momentum Pictures has acquired UK distribution rights. Meg Thomson and George Duffield of Arcane Pictures are producing, with Summit executive producing and Alquimia Cinema co-producing.
"dot the i is an extraordinarily fresh and original screenplay which has already attracted unprecedented attention in the UK, and the producers have managed to bring together a fantastic international cast and crew," said David Garrett, executive vice president of Summit Entertainment in London.
