Hyde Park Entertainment and Image Nation Abu Dhabi are set to finance and co-produce Arctic family adventure feature “Midnight Sun” which begins shooting in Canadian Arctic and Manitoba in November.
Set amongst the ice fields of Northern Canada, the story follows a young boy who defies the dangerous elements of nature to reunite an abandoned polar bear cub with its mother.
At first he’s aided by a half Inuit/half Canadian who knows the terrain, but they are soon separated on the floating ice of the high Arctic with the boy and cub braving bear attacks, giant icebergs, and vicious windstorms.
Hugh Hudson (“Chariots of Fire”, “Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan”) helms from a script he co-wrote with Bart Gavigan. Jake Eberts, Brando Quilici and Ashok Amritraj will produce.
