Big Muddy film shoot starts in Saskatchewan


Production has started in Saskatchewan on writer/director Jefferson Moneo’s Big Muddy, which stars Nadia Litz, Stephen McHattie and David La Haye.

The Canadian indie is a coproduction between Angel Entertainment Corp, Aiken Heart Productions and Prowler Pictures, which earlier collaborated on Going South, a Canadian short film that screened in Cannes last year.

The ensemble cast includes Rossif Sutherland, Justin Kelly and Holly Deveaux (Hemlock Grove).

The Big Muddy shoot will take place in Saskatoon, Assiniboia and the Big Muddy district of southwestern Saskatchewan.

Producer Bob Crowe of Angel Entertainment said Big Muddy may be among the last movies to tap tax credits in the province after refundable incentives were axed by the provincial government.

Big Muddy was grandfathered under the former tax credit regime.

Big Muddy is financed by Telefilm Canada, SaskFilm and The Harold Greenberg Fund.

Union Pictures will release the picture in Canada.
