Martin Donovan (Weeds, Boss), Kacey Rohl and Amber Anderson are set to star in Baldy, a drama about a fake cancer patient from writer/directors Calvin Thomas and Yonah Lewis.

The Canadian indie sees Hannibal star Rohl play a desperate university dance major who is faking cancer to fundraise. After applying for an academic bursary, she learns she has one week to present medical records proving she has cancer, which produces five suspenseful days to keep the fraud hidden from friends, her girlfriend (Anderson) and strangers.

Connor Jessup has a supporting role. Baldy is shooting in Toronto and Hamilton, Ontario. Film Forge Productions and Lisa Pictures are producing in association with Babe Nation Films.

Karen Harnisch, Katie Bird Nolan, Lindsay Tapscott, Thomas and Lewis are sharing the producer credits. Christina Piovesan, Greg Stewart, Sumit Ajwani and Jonathan Pottins are executive producing. Lev Lewis and Yona Strauss are associate producers. 

Donovan next appears in HBO's Big Little Lies and was seen in Fahrenheit 451. His credits include Ant-Man and Insomnia. He is repped by Buchwald.
