The Hollywood actress will play an international mediator in Chloe Robichaud’s second feature.

Revenge star Emily VanCamp has taken on her first bilingual movie role.

The Canadian-born actress is to play an international mediator in Pays (Borders), from writer-director Chloe Robichaud and indie producers Item 7 and La Boite a Fanny. VanCamp will portray Emily Price, who balances family life and leading crunch negotiations between a Canadian politician (Nathalie Doummar) and the president of a country whose natural resources are being exploited, played by Macha Grenon.

Before Revenge, VanCamp had a breakout role in Brothers and Sisters, and is part of Marvel's Captain America movie franchise. Pays is the follow-up to Robichaud's first feature, Sarah Prefers to Run, which debuted in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes in 2013.

The Canadian indie also stars Yves Jacques, Alexandre Landry, Serge Houde, Sophie Faucher and Remy Girard. Pays is produced by Fanny-Laure Malo, Pierre Even, Marie-Claude Poulin and Barbara Doran.

Production has started in Montreal, before shifting in November to Newfoundland. Les Films Seville will release Pays in Canada.
