Deadline has learned exclusively that the comedy Blue Iguana, to be directed by Canadian Filmmaker Jeremy LaLonde, adds Joel David Moore (Avatar), Bob Saget (Full House), Jason Jones (The Detour), Carly Chaikin (Mr. Robot), and Mary Lynn Rajskub (Little Miss Sunshine). Blue Iguana will film on the island of Grand Cayman beginning on March 8 and will be a three-picture production.
Matthew Dressel will write the script that follows Daniel Powell’s attempt to reconcile with his siblings hits a snag when he learns that they all intend to kill him for his inheritance. As the siblings are forced to spend the weekend together at the family beach house on the Cayman Islands, but one thing is abundantly clear: Daniel is going to have to figure out what family means, even if it kills him.
Productivity CEO William G. Santor said: “We are delighted to announce this first-ever multi-picture collaboration with the Government of the Cayman Islands. Their vision to develop and foster a robust film industry is very exciting, while offering a safe and secure place for production in these unprecedented times. Both the Cayman Islands Government and Dart Enterprises have worked tremendously hard to see this through and have been incredibly welcoming, and we couldn’t have got this far without the amazing collaboration and support from Eric Bush and Jackie Doak. We will shoot three feature films in the Cayman Islands with Nicholas and our partners at Darius Films, as well as a fourth film planned with Joel David Moore and his Balcony 9 banner. We are excited to get started with Blue Iguana.”
Darius President Nicholas Tabarrok continued: “I’m always happy to be in production – anytime, anywhere. But to be in production in a Covid-free country which also happens to be a tropical paradise with this talented group of individuals? I couldn’t be happier or more excited.”
