Jason Priestley Helms “Cas & Dylan”

“Beverly Hills, 90210” and “Call Me Fitz” actor Jason Priestley is set to direct the dark indie road-trip comedy “Cas & Dylan” at Montefiore Films says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story follows a 61-year-old dying man who plans to end his life on his own terms. That quest takes a detour when the man ends up on the lam with an eccentric 22-year-old woman (The Vow’s Tatiana Maslany).

Jessie Gabe (“Being Erica”) penned the script and shooting aims to begin in Canada in July on location between Winnipeg and Victoria.

Mark Montefiore is producing. Priestley has helmed episodes of various TV shows as well as a 1999 theatrical documentary about rock band Barenaked Ladies.
