The Lakehouse, which takes place over the course of a swingers weekend, is produced by Sammeroff and Cohen’s Savoy Entertainment. The film follows “six very different individuals and three very different couples, each with their own dynamics and relationships” and what happens to them as they go through this wild weekend, said Sammeroff in an interview with Playback Daily. 

The Lakehouse is directed by Cohen, and produced by Sammeroff. Suck executive producer Mihkel Harilaid will executive produce the film.

Sammeroff and Cohen wrote and produced the short 16 and Ready to Roll, which recently screened at Cannes as part of its Short Film catalogue.

Production on the feature will begin Sept. 12 in Gravenhurst, ON.
