Allie Chung (Perelandra Jones in “She’s One of Them Now“) will be Kei in A PERFECT PLAN, which stars William Forsythe as Grayson, an experienced con artist who wakes up to find himself confined in a fortified warehouse along with three other notorious thieves (one of whom is Kate, played by Kathleen Munroe). The four of them are forced by a master thief named Theo (Carlo Rota) to plan and execute the theft of the secret diamond collection of John D. Rockefeller. Among others in the cast are Milton Barnes (KILLJOYS) and Yannick Bisson (MURDOCH MYSTERIES). Directed by Jesse Ikeman, A PERFECT PLAN completed filming in Hamilton, Ontario last January. No word yet on a release date.
Chung is also Detective Taylor Kim, partner of Detective Donovan McAvoy (RogerCross) on CORONER, a CBC series based on M.R. Hall’s Jenny Cooper novels. (Cooper is played by Serinda Swan.) Season Two is currently in production in Toronto. Distributed internationally by NBCUniversal, CORONER will begin airing in Australia, Germany, France, Latin America, Poland, Brazil, Spain, and the UK later this year.
Paulino Nunes (General Drago in “Sometimes In Life You Don’t Get To Choose“) is Mr. Moulin (half of the Magnificent Moulins, a husband and wife magic act) in the psychological thriller CLIFTON HILL, the story of Abby (Tuppence Middleton), who returns to her hometown of Niagara Falls to settle her late mother’s estate. Once there, Abby is reunited with her younger sister Laure (Hannah Gross), and becomes obsessed with the memory of a kidnapping she believes she witnessed as a child, and to which she believes she was an accomplice. (Clifton Hill is a touristy section of the Canadian side of the Falls filled with such things as wax museums, video arcades, and the Niagara SkyWheel.) David Cronenberg appears in the film as Walter Bell, the last survivor of a family of diving daredevils. CLIFTON HILL will next screen at the 2019 Vancouver International Film Festival on Wednesday 2 October at 6:30pm.

DARK MATTER showrunner Joseph Mallozzi is collaborating with Vanessa Piazza on a new series called TIMESCAPE, with Corus Entertainment attached as the broadcaster. On his blog, Mallozzi described the show this way: “It’s tonally and thematically similar to DARK MATTER, so much so that a crossover could be theoretically possible…and, who knows, should the pieces fall into place, there may be an opportunity to check in with an old friend or two.”
Mallozzi is also working on a TV adaptation of LITTLE HEAVEN, a horror novel by Craig Davidson published in 2017 under the alias Nick Cutter. In the book, three mercenaries are hired by a woman to find her nephew, whom she believes has been taken against his will to a remote town in New Mexico. When the mercenaries arrive at the town (called Little Heaven) they must confront terrifying supernatural forces.
