The Blaine Brothers have started shooting their debut feature and production is also underway on animation Gus, starring Dakota Fanning and Seth Green.
Ben and Chris Blaine are in production with their first feature film Nina Forever, a darkly comic love story in which a girl’s attempt at helping her boyfriend through his grief is not aided by his dead girlfriend coming back, bloody and broken, every time they make love.
The film stars Fiona O’Shaughnessy, Abigail Hardingham, Cian Barry as well as Elizabeth Elvin and David Troughton in supporting roles.
Additional financing is being raised through Kickstarter.
Dakota Fanning, Seth Green as well as Danny Glover, Christine Baranski, Richard Kind and Elliot Gould are lending their voices to animation Gus, which is currently being produced by TeamTO, Panache Productions, Haut Et Court and StudioCanal with backing from CNC, MEDIA Programme, Backup Films and Procirep.
The story, written by Cory Edwards and Antoine Barraud, follows a misunderstood orphan yellow bird who unites a flock of migratory birds and leads them to Africa via the Arctic Circle.
Dominique Monfery and Christian De Vita are jointly directing.
SC Films International has acquired international sales rights.
