Posted: April 27, 2012

We've said it before we'll say it again - Donald Sutherland is one busy fella.

Donald Sutherland as President Snow in HUNGER GAMESThe Saint John, NB native has already had TV's Treasure Island and the blockbuster THE HUNGER GAMES released this year – with another made for TV movie Living Loaded and two more feature films set for release in 2012. Coincidentally both of those features co-star Christian Slater (Heathers)

One we've posted on before (article) – DAWN RIDER which also co-stars Nova Scotia's own George Canyon. That movie, a remake of the John Wayne classic, is set for release to DVD on May 29, 2012.

SOFIA STILLS Sutherland as Ambassador Ashdown, Slater as Robert Diggs, Elika Portnoy as Vicki Deneve.The other feature is SOFIA which is set for limited release and Video-on-Demand this July.

Shot in Sofia, Bulgaria - this psychological thriller has Sutherland in the role of Ambassador Ashdown who enlists the help of former FBI agent Robert Diggs played by Slater to investigate a string of assassinations by an unknown vigilante.

The movie also stars Timothy Spall (Secrets & Lies) and Elika Portnoy, who not only conceived the story of SOFIA but she also co-wrote and stars in the film as Vicki Deneve.

Watch the trailer above and see why we say “thriller”.

As for what's next for Sutherland – we can tell you his work on the movie JAPPELOUP is complete and that's slated to hit theatres January 2013.  He's currently shooting BEST OFFER in Italy along side Oscar Winner Geoffrey Rush and his TV project Living Loaded (a series pilot from the creators of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia) is currently in pre-preproduction.

We'll keep you posted – 'cause you know when it comes to Mr. Sutherland – there's always something! SABS
