OKANAGAN - Christina Ricci, John Cusack and Brendan Fletcher are coming to the Okanagan to film a movie.

Although it has yet to be confirmed by the Okanagan Film Commission, Variety reports the film production will begin May 28 in Kelowna and Vernon.

The independent drama Distorted will be directed by Rob W. King who was in Osoyoos in late 2016 shooting The Humanity Bureau starring Nicolas Cage.

The screenplay for Distorted was written by Arne Olsen.

The film depicts an artist, played by Ricci, suffering from bipolar disorder who recently lost her child.

When she and her husband (Fletcher) move to an apartment building, Ricci’s character suspects something with the security system is wrong and hires an investigative journalist, played by Cusack, who specializes in cyber conspiracy.
