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.
