The movie, written by Sam Roberts, will start shooting in the Gatineau region of Quebec in mid-July.
Montreal-based Equinoxe is also to begin production in June in South Africa on the Jennifer Hudson-starring “Winnie,” a $15 million film that portrays the life of Winnie Mandela.

Equinoxe is also mid-way through production on another Canada-South Africa co-production, “A Million Colours,” which is directed and co-written by Peter Bishai.
