Washington D.C. [USA], Nov 5 (ANI): Actor Jon Hamm, who is known playing advertising executive Don Draper in 'Mad Men,' is all set to star in upcoming supernatural thriller film 'Off Season.'

It is the first feature from BAFTA nominated writer/director Jonathan van Tulleken based on his BAFTA-nominated short of the same name.

Currently in pre-production, the film is set to begin principal photography in Canada in early 2018.

The movie is about a man who goes in search of his elderly father who has mysteriously disappeared. It is set in the harsh, frozen Canadian tundra and the son's feverish search exposes shocking family secrets long buried, reports the Hollywood Reporter.

Writer-director Jonathan van Tulleken said the 'Baby Driver' star in the lead role is the kind of good fortune.

"I never imagined I'd have the opportunity to do this with such a highly esteemed team around me. Nira Park and Miles Dale are two of the most gifted and respected producers working in film," van Tulleken stated. (ANI)
