  • Print

TORONTO -- Donald Sutherland is set to produce, write and star in an animated film for CBC-TV.

Sutherland's production company, Martin's River Ink, Inc., says work has begun on Pirate's Passage.

The film is based on William Gilkerson's adventure novel about a 12-year-old boy who forms a tight bond with a mysterious sailor, Capt. Johnson.

Sutherland will provide the voice of Johnson, while Gage Munroe (The Immortals) plays the young Jim Hawkins, Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix) is his hard-luck mother and Kim Coates (Sons of Anarchy) is a ruthless local businessman.

The star-studded cast also includes Sutherland's son Rossif Sutherland (Reign), Colm Feore (The Borgias), Megan Follows (Anne of Green Gables), Paul Gross (Passchendaele) and Gordon Pinsent (Away From Her).

Sutherland describes the project as "a thrillingly exhilarating adventure, a glorious coming-of-age-story, rich in both imagination and history, in perception and truth."
