Jacques Blain, the founder of the production studio Cirrus Communications, has announced the launch of the studio Lusio Films. Besides, this company is preparing the adaptation of a Canadian literary classic.
First of all, Lusio Films will specialize itself in the production of films and TV series. Besides, it will work in partnership with Zone 3, another production company. As the founder of Cirrus Communications, Mr. Blain was the producer of C.R.A.Z.Y., which was directed by Jean-Marc Vallée (The Young Victoria).
Secondly, Lusio Films submitted a feature film project to Telefilm Canada, a federal agency that funds Canadian films. This project will be titled Le torrent, an adaptation of a short story written by award-winning Canadian writer Anne Hébert.
