Constantin Film begins production on LOVE, ROSIE

Toronto, Canada, May 15th, 2013 – Production began on Monday (13th May) on LOVE, ROSIE, a romantic comedy based on the bestselling book ‘Where Rainbows End’ from Irish author Cecelia Ahern (P.S. I Love You). LOVE, ROSIE will be filming on location in Toronto, Canada before moving to Dublin, Ireland for the remainder of the shoot.

The film stars Lily Collins (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Mirror Mirror) and Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Snow White and the Huntsman) as Rosie and Alex, best friends since school who find that life often gets in the way of love but, true love just like true friendship, never dies.

The film is produced by Constantin Film’s Robert Kulzer (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Resident Evil film franchise) alongside Canyon Creek Films’ Simon Brooks (White Noise). Executive Producer is Martin Moszkowicz (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Resident Evil: Retribution).

Author Cecelia Ahern said today “I’m beyond excited that my novel ‘Where Rainbows End’ is going into production now and that it’s being filmed in Canada and in Ireland. I can’t wait to see Rosie and Alex’s love story come to life on the big screen!”
