Carrie Anne Moss and Callum Keith Rennie have signed on to what’s sounding like a Canadian take on Amores Perros.
Cranking its plot about a fatal car crash that links several characters, Normal finds Moss’s Catherine filled with rage about the death of her teenage son in the incident, while also trying to raise her 12-year-old son (played by X3’s Cameron Bright).
And Callum Keith Rennie – usually found as a Cylon on TV’s Battlestar Galactica – is playing Walt, a literature professor and the man responsible for the accidental death, who’s plunged into deep despair. Also starring is Kevin Zegers, a young thief having an affair with his stepmother, whose life becomes intertwined with the others.
With Carl Bessai behind the camera, Normal is shooting in Vancouver right now.
