|Robert DeNiro at TIFF 2010|
Director Rodrigo Cortés heightened his profile significantly at TIFF 2010 with Maple Pictures' Buried and its One Man-Cast of Ryan Reynolds. It is said that Cortés has completed Pre-Production on his next project titled Red Lights and is now ready to begin filming.
Red Lights is a Thriller about a Psychiatrist and her Assistant who study Paranormal Activity. From this, they are led to a Psychic.
Now here's the Kicker. Attached to the project are Blockbuster names like Sigourney Weaver, Robert DeNiro, Toby Jones, Cillian Murphy and Elizabeth Olsen, younger Sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley. 22 year-old Olsen created quite a bit of buzz at the Sundance Film Festival a couple weeks ago with her performance in Silent House, another Thriller.
Although we are waiting on confirmation whether or not Red Lights will actually film in Toronto, a telling sign is that Pre-production for the Film has taken place in both Barcelona and Toronto. Tentatively, it is set for a 2012 release. IMDB indicates that filming indeed will take place in Canada. Stay tuned....
