Jackson joining ensemble cast of indie ‘Borealis’
“Dawson’s Creek” alum-Joshua Jackson is joining Donald Sutherland, Juliette Lewis and Louise Fletcher in the indie “Aurora Borealis.” The project is lensing in Toronto.
James Burke is helming from a script by Brent Boyd. “Borealis” centers on a troubled young man (Jackson) struggling to right himself after the premature death of his father. Sutherland and Fletcher play his grandparents, with Lewis starring as the home assistant to Sutherland’s character who winds up as Jackson’s love interest.
Entitled Entertainment–the production partnership between Burke and Scott Disharoon–is producing in association with Rick Bieber Prods. Individual producing credits go to Disharoon and Bieber.
Jackson is repped by WMA and Michael Bircumshaw at Water Street Management. Jackson has worked on the indie “Americano,” “I Love Your Work” and as part of the voice talent in “Racing Snipes.”
