Pacific Northwest Pictures is pleased to present the theatrical premiere of Jason Priestley’s directorial narrative feature debut Cas & Dylan, in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Halifax on April 4th, 2014. The film stars Academy Award-winner Richard Dreyfuss (The Goodbye Girl, Jaws, Mr. Holland’s Opus, What About Bob?) opposite award-winning Canadian actor Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black, Picture Day).

Cas & Dylan is a comedic drama that follows the 61-year-old self-proclaimed loner and terminally ill, Dr. Cas Pepper (Dreyfuss), who reluctantly agrees to give 22-year-old social misfit, Dylan Morgan (Maslany), a very short lift home. The last thing he anticipates is that he will strike her angry boyfriend with his car, find himself on the lam, and ultimately drive across the country with an aspiring young writer determined to help him overcome his own bizarre case of suicide note writer’s block.

Suddenly Cas’ solo one-way trip out West isn’t so solo. With Dylan at his side, the two take off on an adventure that will open their eyes to some of life’s lessons – both big and small.
Cas & Dylan is a story not only about death, but also about life, fate, inspiration, and self-determination. Not to mention, about the perils of offering lifts to strangers.

Cas & Dylan is written by Jessie Gabe (
Mr. D, Being Erica) and directed by Jason Priestley. It is produced by Montefiore Films and Breakthough Entertainment.  Mark Montefiore (Picnicface, Eating Buccaneers) produced the film, with  Emily Alden of Pacific Northwest Pictures,  Marina Cordoni, Steven Denure, Ira Levy, Bill Marks, and Peter Williamson serving as executive producers.

 Cas and Dylan had its Western Canadian premiere and was the opening night film for the 2013 Whistler Film Festival. The film received WFF’s Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature and Tatiana Maslany was awarded Best Actor in a Borsos Film for the second year in a row.
