First Look: Malin Akerman and Tyler Labine play with axes in 'Cottage Country'
Dark comedy also stars Lucy Punch and Daniel Petronijevic
Here's an early first look at the dark comedy "Cottage Country," starring Tyler Labine and Malin Akerman, which has just begun principal photography in Canada.
Labine ("Rise of the Planet of the Apes") plays Todd, who plans to propose to his girlfriend Cammie (Akerman, from "Watchmen") at his family's idyllic cottage getaway. When Todd’s annoying brother and his girlfriend show up uninvited, an endless string of inconveniences pop up -- including accidental axe murder.
The film also stars Daniel Petronijevic ("Falling Skies") and Lucy Punch ("Bad Teacher"), and is being directed by Peter Wellington ("Slings & Arrows") and written by Jeremy Boxen ("Lost Girl")
Frank Siracusa ("Hobo With A Shotgun") with Paul Gross ("Passchendaele") are producing for Whizbang Films.
"Cottage Country is a comedy about brotherly love, deceit and murder - something we can all relate to," says Siracusa in a press release.
"Cottage Country" is scheduled for release sometime in 2012.
