Deadline is exclusively reporting that Katherine McNamara is set to star alongside Jasmine Sky Sarin, Eric Bruneau and Spencer List, in the Canadian-Mexican co-production thriller Sugar.
The film follows two young influencers who find themselves on a glamorous once-in-a-lifetime trip through the Caribbean and South Pacific, relaxing by day, partying by night, finding new love and becoming best friends. But as the mirage of their online personas starts to clash with their real-life ambitions, a battle of wills threatens to tear them apart.
The film is being directed by Vic Sarin, who also developed the screenplay alongside writers Annelies Kavan and Ben Johnstone. BC-based Sepia Films and Montreal-based Connect3 Media are behind the film, with Sepia Films’ Tina Pehme and Kim Roberts serving as producers on the project.
Production on Sugar is scheduled to commence this month in Cancun, Mexico, and Montreal, Quebec.
