If you live in Quebec, expect to hear, in the upcoming months, about an indie flick starring a homegrown star. For that matter, director Dany Papineau announced that his upcoming film 2 Frogs dans l'Ouest (2 Frogs in the West) will almost be over now that the winter Olympics in Vancouver are history. Moreover, 2 Frogs dans l'Ouest will be released in Quebec in fall 2010.
The screenplay was written by Dany Papineau, Grégoire Bédard and David Uloth.
In the story, we follow Marie Deschamps (Mirianne Brulé), a young 20-year-old Quebecker girl who quits college. She plans to go on the Canadian West coast to learn English. Obviously, her father (Germain Houde) is against this trip and wants her to finish school instead. Moreover, he tells Marie that if she dares to travel across Canada, she'll no longer have the right to come back to her parents' house. Marie's journey will bring her up to Whistler, British Columbia, where she will meet other young people who are a little lost just like her. However, somewhere out in the West, these people and this adventure will change her life forever.
Besides, the film also star Diane Lavallée, Dany Papineau, Anik Vermette and Jessica Malka.
Finally, there's no doubt that the film will be compared to Sean Penn's Into the Wild. Until then, let's wait for the release of the film in fall 2010. The following video is a news release that bring us on the set of the film.
