Marlee Matlin, who won an Oscar for 'Children of a Lesser God,' shooting a thriller in Sudbury

'Entangled' also stars Canadian actress Paloma Kwiatkowski

Academy Award winner Marlee Matlin and Paloma Kwiatkowski headline the cast of Entangled, the new sci-fi thriller feature film being filmed and entirely produced in Sudbury.

Principal photography for Entangled began last week in Sudbury, with the assistance from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund (NOHFC) and Telefilm Canada. 

Entangled follows four brilliant university students who are forced to confront themselves in terrifying ways when their experiments with quantum physics become entangled with the unexpected forces of a parallel universe. 

Loretta (played by Paloma Kwiatkowski of Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and Bates Motel), Gerry (played by Munro Chambers of Turbo Kid, Sadie’s Last Days on Earth and Degrassi), Danny (played by Robert Naylor of Cyberbully and Being Human) and Amy (played by Sandra Mae Frank of Deaf West’s Spring Awakening and Sound of Fear) are students that have bonded around "anomaly science" experiments until something goes terribly wrong. 

Accidentally bringing their doppelgängers into their universe they quickly find out only one of them can survive. 

Deirdre (played by Matlin of Children of a Lesser GodThe West Wing and Quantico) features and plays Amy’s mother. 

The sci-fi thriller is being filmed and produced in Sudbury. This film will be presented with Closed Captioning and be made accessible for the deaf and hard of hearing. 

The film is produced by Jason Ross Jallet of AAP Inc. alongside Bev Bliss of Moving Story 2 Film Inc.

“We are excited to be filming in Sudbury and to have a young talented cast with international appeal to bring this riveting and suspenseful sci-fi thriller to life,” said Jallet.
