Avan Jogia appeared in the TV series Now Apocalypse as well as Zombieland: Double Tap. He will also appear in the upcoming film The Exchange as well as Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City. He’s a busy guy — but he still had time to direct a whole feature titled Door Mouse which will star Hayley Law (Riverdale, Altered Carbon) and Keith Powers (The Tomorrow War, Straight Outta Compton).
The pair will join Famke Janssen (Redeeming Love, When They See Us, X-Men) and Donal Logue (The Cloverfield Paradox, Zodiac) in the neo-noir thriller which centers on the titular woman Mouse (Law) who is stuck in a dead-end job, doing nothing with her life and going nowhere.
Mouse works at Mama’s Burlesque Club all night, where her boss Mama (Janssen) encourages her to pursue her real passion of making comics. When a friend from work named Doe-Eyes goes missing and the cops do nothing about it, Mouse and her sidekick Ugly (Powers) take it upon themselves to find out what happened to her. What they discover is that corruption runs deep, monsters are real, and that sometimes, justice is meant to be taken into your own hands.
Independent Edge’s Kyle Mann and Cause and Effect Entertainment’s Jason Ross Jallet serve as producers of Door Mouse. JoBro Productions’ Jonathan Bronfman, Drive Films, Michael Risle, Goldrush Entertainment’s Eric Gozlan, and Nathan Klingher serve as executive producers. Additional funding for the project came from Telefilm Canada, Northern Ontario Heritage Fund, and Ontario Creates. Highland Film Group are handling worldwide sales at the virtual Cannes market in June.
Jogia is repped by ICM Partners, LINK, The Characters Agency, and Jackoway Tyerman et al; Law is repped by Paradigm and Management 360; and Powers is repped by Paradigm and Megan Silverman Management.
