Filming quietly in Toronto is Brian Petsos’ directorial Feature debut, BIG GOLD BRICK, which he also penned. The Dark Comedy centers on a Writer hired to write enigmatic Floyd Devereux‘s Biography, encountering sheer chaos along the way. The Film boasts an incredible Cast including Megan Fox, Oscar Isaac, Emery Cohen, ShilohFernandez and screen legend Andy Garcia.
Filming in the City’s east-end, we were ever lucky that production took place down the road from our home. We did our best to stay out of the way, but it was a thrill seeing a legend in Garcia operate and to see Cohen‘s level of energy while at work. Cohen you might remember from Oscar-nominated Brooklyn opposite Saoirse Ronan and The Place Beyond the Pines.
We know it’s early but this is the type of Movie that does the Festival rounds and we can only hope it makes it to TIFF next year when it sees a release!
Garcia was so nice to stop for a couple Selfies. He looks amazing still!
