SPD Green in the Disney series is lensing the romantic comedy that stars Dov Tiefenbach, Tommi-Amber Pirie and Zoë Kravitz.
TORONTO -- Matt Sadowski, best known as SPD Green in Power Rangers SPD, is making his feature film directorial debut in Canada.
The actor-turned-filmmaker, who performed the role of Bridge Carson in the Disney series, has ordered the cameras to roll in Toronto on Pretend We're Kissing, a romantic comedy that stars Dov Tiefenbach, Tommie-Amber Pirie and Zoë Kravitz.
Sadowski, whose short film credits include Jimmy, Plus or Minus and The Tape, is directing his first feature about two ordinary people who have a whirlwind weekend romance.
Tiefenbach plays Benny, a nebbish character who struggles to make a real romantic connection, while Pirie performs the role of Jordan, a girl hell bent on proving magical love can exist.
Kravitz (Divergent) plays Autumn, an unemployed, bisexual hippy who is also a self-diagnosed agoraphobic.
The film will shoot for 15 days in Toronto through Nov. 6 after securing micro-budget coin from Telefilm Canada, the federal government's film financier.
Pretend We’re Kissing is produced by Sadowski and Peter Harvey and executive produced by Mark Montefiore (Cas & Dylan).
