Justin Bartha, Bruce Greenwood, Inbar Lavi Join Indie 'Sorry for Your Loss'
'Schitt's Creek' writer Collin Friesen makes his directorial debut with the indie comedy.
Bruce Greenwood, Justin Bartha and Inbar Lavi have nabbed the lead roles in Sorry for Your Loss, the directorial debut of writer Collin Friesen (Schitt's Creek, The Big White).
Bartha (The Hangover) plays Ken, a new dad who returns home to bury his estranged father, only to find the dead man's final wish is to have his ashes scattered on the field of his beloved football team. Greenwood plays the estate's slick executor who secretly courts Ken's wife, portrayed by Inbar Lavi (Imposters).
Filming on Sorry for Your Loss from Farpoint Films and Middle Child Films is underway in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Bartha is repped by CAA and MGMT Entertainment. Greenwood is repped by Gersh, and Lavi is repped by ICM Partners and Justice & Ponder.
The indie is produced by Tony Wosk and Kyle Bornais.
