Brendan Gleeson and Taylor Kitsch have joined the ensemble cast of Don McKellar’s ‘The Grand Seduction,’ an English language remake of the 2003 Quebec hit ‘Le Grande Séduction.’
Co-written by Ken Scott and Michael Dowse (‘Goon’) the indie centres on a tiny fishing village which is in dire need of a doctor so that it can land a contract to secure a new factory. Kitsch will be playing the young doctor who is lured by the local residents. Gleeson will portray a resident of the village.
Liane Balaban and veteran Canadian actors Mary Walsh, Cathy Jones and Gordon Pinsent are set to co-star with production kicking off this week in St John’s, Newfoundland.
