Hayley Law and Keith Powers have been cast in actor Avan Jogia’s neo noir thriller Door Mouse. Jogia is making his feature writing and directorial debut with this project. Famke Janssen and Donal Logue have also been cast.
The neo-noir thriller centers on a woman named Mouse (Law) who is stuck in a dead-end job, doing nothing with her life and going nowhere. Mouse works at Mama’s Burlesque Club all night, where her boss Mama (Janssen) encourages her to pursue her real passion of making comics. When a friend from work named Doe-Eyes goes missing and the cops do nothing about it, Mouse and her sidekick Ugly (Powers) take it upon themselves to find out what happened to her. What they discover is that corruption runs deep, monsters are real, and that sometimes, justice is meant to be taken into your own hands.
Kyle Mann of Independent Edge and Cause and Effect Entertainment’s Jason Ross Jallet are producing, with JoBro Productions Jonathan Bronfman to executive produce. Drive Films, Michael Risley, Goldrush Entertainment’s Eric Gozlan, and Nathan Klingher of Short Porch Pictures are also on board as executive producers. Additional funding for the project came from Telefilm Canada, Northern Ontario Heritage Fund, and Ontario Creates. Highland Film Group are handling worldwide sales at the virtual Cannes market in June.
Production for Door Mouse has just wrapped in Canada.
Law recently starred in Saban Films’ Echo Boomers, opposite Michael Shannon. As for Powers, he will star in Tomorrow War on Amazon opposite Chris Pratt. He is also starring opposite Gabrielle Union in Netflix’s The Perfect Find.
