TORONTO – Suzanne Clément, Paloma Kwiatkowski and Callum Keith Rennie have jumped on board writer/director Ana Valine’s mother and daughter drama Sitting on the Edge of Marlene.
The indie from Foundation Features and Rodeo Queen Pictures sees Kwiatkowski play a 16-year-old waiting for her father to get out of prison as she gets drawn into the family con business.
Clément (Laurence Anyways) plays the pill-popping, alcoholic mother in Valine’s adaptation of the Billie Livingston novella The Trouble With Marlene.
Sitting on the Edge of Marlene is shooting in Maple Ridge and Langley, British Columbia.
Rennie has just completed a star-turn in Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s The Young and Prodigious Spivot feature, which shot in Canada, and Kwiatkowski performed the role of Thalia in the 20th Century Fox’s Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.
Sitting on the Edge of Marlene is produced by Amber Ripley and executive produced by Rob Merilees.
Denys Arcand (The Barbarian Invasions) is also executive producing.
Entertainment One has the Canadian releasing rights to the indie, and is handling all foreign sales.
