American actress Shailene Woodley will land in Montreal by the end of the month to participate in the filming of the film Misanthrope.
This thriller by Argentinian filmmaker Damian Szifron (The New Savages) was originally supposed to be filmed in the metropolis last spring, but the whole was postponed due to the pandemic. This time around, despite the uncertainty surrounding the second wave of COVID-19, production will kick off at the end of January, has learned The newspaper.
Misanthrope will feature a talented but unstable young police detective who is recruited by the FBI to investigate the murders of a dangerous serial killer. Shailene Woodley (Divergent, Big Little Lies) will star in the film. Ben Mendelsohn (Ready Player One) and Jovan Adepo (Watchmen) are also part of the distribution.
It turns despite everything
Even if Quebec is subject to strict containment until February 8 to stop the spread of the virus, Prime Minister François Legault indicated last week that filming and TV series could continue given that they were framed by health instructions.
The shooting of the Hollywood movie Moonfall was relaunched a few days ago after taking a break during the holiday season. American series The Republic of Sarah, The Moodys and The Bold Type (the 4e season) are also due to be shot in Montreal this winter.
