Some news came to The Cultural Post that as of today, production will be over for the Canadian film Afghan Luke and The Burgundy of Hash, an upcoming Canadian dramatic comedy. This means that the film is post-production.
This dramatic comedy directed by Mike Clattenburg follows Luke (Nick Stahl), a war journalist. Disheartened when his story about Canadian snipers who are possibly mutilating corpses of enemy Afghan combatants is buried, Luke quits his job but is even more determined to return to Afghanistan to get the story. Through the contacts of his offbeat buddy, Luke is offered a job by a stoner magazine to return to Afghanistan and do a 'gonzo' article about the best hashish in the region.
The film was shot in British Columbia, a province of Canada on the West Coast. Obviously, exterior scenes of the film were used in order to give people the feeling that the story takes place in Afghanistan.
The story was penned by Barrie Dunn, Mike Volpe and Mike Clattenburg.
Besides, Stahl, other members of the cast include Stephen Lobo, Nicolas Wright, Ali Liebert, Steve Cochrane, Torrance Coombs, Pascale Hutton, Vik Sahay, Gary Levert, Ron Lea, Pablo Silveira, Emmanuel Shirinian, Parm Soor, Lewis Black, Timothy Webber and Colin Cunningham.
Finally, the film will be distributed in Canada by Alliance Atlantis and a release date has yet to be announced.
