Brie Larson finds Room in Toronto

Brie LarsonAmerican actress and singer/songwriter Brie Larson is heading to Canada to film her starring role in Room, directed by Lenny Abrahamson.

Abrahamson, whose recent credits include the Michael Fassbender-starrer Frank, directs from a screenplay by Emma Donoghue, author of the original best-selling novel on which the feature is based.

Shooting starts in mid-October in Toronto on the film, which comes from producers Ed Guiney of Element Pictures in Ireland and Canada-based David Gross.

The harrowing story centres on 5 year-old Jack who is raised in a shed by a young mother (Larson) who protects him from the reality that they are actually being held captive long term and tells him that what he sees on TV is not real.  

Other recent productions to have shot in Toronto include Alejandro Amenábar’s Regression starring Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke; for more on filming in Canada, go to our production guide.
