Mediamax shoots Moth Dairies


Indie producer Mediamax has started shooting the Mary Harron gothic horror pic The Moth Diaries in Montreal, with Scott Speedman, Lily Cole, Sarah Gadon and Sarah Bolger toplining the Canadian-Irish co-production.

The genre pic gets Canadian director Harron back onto familiar territory after her 2000 break-out hit American Psycho, as The Moth Diaries features Bolger as a teenage girl at a boarding girl who suspects her roommate is a vampire.

The film’s producers are Sandra Cunningham of Strada Films, Karine Martin of Mediamax and David Collins of Irish production company Samson Films. Ronald Gilbert of Mediamax is the co-producer. Executive producers are Edward R. Pressman of Edward R. Pressman Film, Jean-François Doray and Louis-Simon Ménard of Mediabiz International.

Production is set to continue in and around Montreal until October 8.
