Remstar Corporation Signs a $40 Million Two Picture Deal with Rod On Jr.
Remstar Production will finance the two pictures in exchange of all rights in North America. Remstar Distribution will handle theatrical distribution of the pictures in Canada. US Distribution is still in negotiation.
“The Last Chapter” is based on Mr. On’s forthcoming novel, "Le Dernier Chapitre." The novel will be published in March 2007 by Michel Lafon Publishing (Europe). Malcolm McDowell, Pete Postlethwaite, Virginie Ledoyen and Olga Sosnovska are already attached to play the supporting roles. Casting for the lead roles is still on going. Currently in pre-production, “The Last Chapter” will start shooting in early January 2007 in Montréal and Toronto.
Mr. On also penned the second project, “My Life, My Secret,” aka ”Ma Vie, Mon Secret,” a powerful sociological drama revolving around a corrupt police officer and his dysfunctional family. Set in Paris, Prague and Montreal, the film is tentatively scheduled to start production in July 2007.
Mr. On is also the author of “Strange Destiny” and “Just A Little Love.” His previous films include “Une Grande Perte” and “City and Crimes.” He has also directed several high tech music videos and commercials.
