Toronto’s LevelFilm has acquired 22 Chaser, the debut feature from director Rafal Sokolowski (Three Mothers).

The drama, which was produced through the Canadian Film Centre’s CFC Features program, is produced by Don Carmody (Shadowhunter), Daniel Bekerman (The Witch) and Aeschylus Poulos (Mary Goes Round), with Brendan Carmody (13 Eerie) coproducing and the CFC’s Justine Whyte (Adventures in Public School) exec producing.

It stars Brian J. Smith (Sense8), as a tow truck driver who decides to risk everything to try and provide for his struggling family. Based on a screenplay by Jeremy Boxen (Orphan Black), the film also stars Raoul Trujillo (Sicario), Tiio Horn (What Would Sal Do?), Aaron Ashmore (Killjoys) and John Kapelos (The Breakfast Club).

The film, which went into production in 2015, will have its premiere as part of National Canadian Film Day at a special presentation event at Toronto’s Scotiabank Theatre on April 18. LevelFilm will then roll the film out theatrically across Canada in the summer.

Development at CFC Features is supported by the Government of Ontario, with production support and financing supported by the CFC and Bell Media’s The Movie Network. The film’s producers secured additional production financing from Telefilm Canada and the OMDC.

22 Chaser is represented by XYZ in the U.S. and Red Sea Media in the international market.
