Saskatchewan to have its own Adventure Club

Creative Saskatchewan is excited to announce funding for the film co-production The Adventure Club.

 

The Adventure Club is a co-production between Saskatchewan’s Montague Entertainment and Alberta’s Trilight Entertainment Inc. Shooting for the film began in Regina on October 9th and will have a Saskatchewan-based crew of approximately 60 people.

 

"Thank you to Creative Saskatchewan for their support of this project,” says Mark Montague, Montague Entertainment. "Saskatchewan is an excellent place to make films and I am excited that we have the opportunity to showcase the work of many talented individuals in our production”.

 

“This is our second film in Saskatchewan this year. We’re all very excited with the cast and crew that have been put together and we hope to continue to bring films to the province.” says Shayne Putzlocher, Trilight Entertainment.

 

The film will star Robin Dunne (Sanctuary), Gabrielle Miller (Corner Gas) and Lorne Cardinal (Corner Gas), Sam Ashe Arnold (Mommy’s Little Girl), Jakob Davies (Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules), Dalila Bela (Odd Squad). Written by Fred Ewanuick (Corner Gas) and Robin Dunne this film will be the third time Geoff Anderson returns to Saskatchewan to direct. “I am always impressed by the talent Saskatchewan has to offer. After directing Vampire Dog and Step Dogs here in the province I feel right at home making this movie,” says Geoff Anderson.

 

“We are excited to support this film,” says JP Ellson, CEO of Creative Saskatchewan. “The Adventure Club is another great example of the creative work being done in Saskatchewan.”

 

The Adventure Club is an exciting film about children searching for their next big adventure.

 

The Adventure Club has precisely three members: ten year-old Ricky, the club’s founder, and his two best friends, Sandy and Bill. The Club’s mandate is pretty simple: to embark on great adventures. The only problem is, they haven’t been able to do much of that in their small town.

One day Ricky discovers something in his late grandfather’s dusty study in the attic of their house – an old map accompanied by a skeleton key. Ricky’s grandfather was an archaeologist who donated many artifacts to the local science museum. Convinced this map and key could lead to a hidden treasure, Ricky galvanizes his two pals to find it. After all, this could be their very first adventure! However, when they discover what is hidden at the end of the map’s coordinates, they are disappointed. All the ‘treasure’ appears to be is an old – and very odd looking – book. Only when the three take it back to their clubhouse, do they discover what the strange contraption really is: It is a wishbox. An ancient artifact with the power to grant wishes that … actually come true!
