EXCLUSIVE: Stoner comedy has cast including Sean Power, Billy Boyd, Alice Lowe.
AmStarDam has started shooting in Amsterdam and London’s 3 Mills Studios for Propeller Artists in association with 011 Productions.
The comedy marks the debut feature from the Lennox Brothers.
The cast includes Sean Power, Jonathan Readwin, Eline Powell, Kenneth Collard, Billy Boyd, Eric Lampaert, Alice Lowe and Javone Prince, with a special appearance from Howard Marks.
The “Amsterdam adventure” is about a young man who comes to Amsterdam to find his father; through a magical encounter he finds a way to turn around his father’s struggling marijuana ‘coffee shop’ business.
Zorana Piggott of 011 Productions is producing. Simon Liddell, Tony North and Brian Jamieson of Propeller Artists are Executive Producers.
Piggott said: “The Lennox Brothers have set out to make an edgy and exciting cinema experience, to tell a story with heart which just happens to be set in a place where weed is smoked freely.”
The Lennox Brothers are veterans of commercials and music videos for the likes of Robbie Williams, Coldplay, and Kasabian.
The film’s $2m budget is raised from private equity and the UK tax credit.
011 Productions is in post on Simon Blake’s Still starring Aidan Gillen, and its forthcoming slate also includes Tom Geens’ debut feature Couple In A Hole.
