The next film by director Sarah Polley (photo), Take This Waltz, just received funding from Telefilm Canada, a federal funding agency for films. Note that this will be the second film from the director of the award-winning film Away From Her. Besides, Take This Waltz will begin production in Toronto in July.
From what The Cultural Post knows, the film is a romantic comedy revolving around a woman who struggles with her infidelities and the budding realization that she may be addicted to the honeymoon period of her relationships. Moreover, it was shot with a budget of about $9 to $10 million.
Speaking about the cast, Seth Rogen (Zack and Miri Make a Porno) and Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain) will be in the film. Since Rogen is Canadian by nationality, this will be his first role in a Canadian-made film ever. The identity of the rest of the cast members will be confirmed in the upcoming months.
Moreover, no release date has been announced for the film so far and it will be distributed in Canada by Mongrel Media.
