Simon Lavoie will direct
"The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond Of Matches"


Filmmaker Simon Lavoie (Le Torrent, Laurentie, Le Déserteur) will direct the film adaptation of Gaétan Soucy's best selling cult novel La petite fille qui aimait trop les allumettes. Simon had the opportunity to meet and exchange with the author while writing the screenplay and he received Soucy's precious blessing prior to his untimely death this summer. Principal photography is slated for the summer of 2015 for a 2016 release. K- Films Amérique will be distributing. Soucy's novel which sold close to a 100,000 copies in Québec is a finalist of France's prestigious Prix Renaudot. It was translated into more than twenty languages and to this day, it stands as one of French Quebec's most traveled and read novels.
