Kristine Froseth Joins Richard Gere, Jacob Elordi – Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: Kristine Froseth (The Buccaneers) has been set to star alongside Richard Gere and Jacob Elordi in Oh, Canada, the newest feature written and directed by Academy Award nominee Paul Schrader (First Reformed).

Based on the 2021 novel Foregone by the late Russell Banks, the film tells the story of Leonard Fife (Gere), a famed documentary filmmaker who takes stock of his life, with not long to go after being stricken with cancer at 80 years old. The most unreliable of narrators — and of men — Fife offers the viewer a look at his home life, as a draft dodging artist who abandoned one family for another, consistently evading any sense of responsibility for actions as he starts a new life in Canada.

As previously announced, Elordi plays a young Fife, seen from his late teens through his mid-twenties. Froseth shares 1968-set scenes with the Saltburn star as his second wife, the conservative Virginian Alicia, who is the mother to his child, Cornel, and is pregnant with a second.

Pic is produced by David Gonzalez (Master Gardener), Tiffany Boyle (The Card Counter), Scott LaStaiti (Master Gardener) and Luisa Law (Master Gardener). Production wrapped under an interim agreement in October.

Currently leading Apple TV+’s series adaptation of Edith Wharton’s final novel, The Buccaneers, Froseth previously impressed opposite Jon Bernthal, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Taylour Paig in Lena Dunham’s Sundance pic Sharp Stick. Other credits for the actress include Neon’s TIFF acquisition How to Blow Up a Pipeline, Showtime’s limited series The First Lady, Kitty Green’s The Assistant for Bleecker Street, Sarah Adina Smith’s Birds of Paradise for Amazon, Hulu’s John Green adaptation Looking for Alaska and Gareth Evans’ Apostle. She is repped by CAA, Anonymous Content, and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller.
