Canadian actor Merritt Patterson (The Royals) and Joshua Sasse (Love Is In The Air, Monarch) come together in the new feature romance, ONE PERFECT MATCH, now shooting at locations across Brisbane. This latest feature film from Jaggi Entertainment is written by Ansley Gordon and directed by Jo-Anne Brechin (When Love Springs, Zelos) and further cements Queensland’s position as the home of romance movies here in Australia. The movie will be distributed around the world by Nicely Entertainment.
When renowned Seattle matchmaker, Lucy Marks (Patterson), meets a handsome businessman while waiting at a restaurant, she feels an immediate spark. That spark is squandered when, the next day, she learns he is none other than Finn Grayson (Sasse), her newest client. With a strict “no dating clients” policy, Lucy and Finn embark on the matchmaking process, with Lucy organising a series of dates with her amazing female clients. Lucy struggles with her feelings for Finn, and feels the sting when Finn and the woman she has chosen for him really hit it off. Lucy is faced with the ultimate dilemma: risk losing her reputation as Seattle’s best matchmaker or let the potential love of her life pass her by?
Merritt Patterson comments “ONE PERFECT MATCH is a fun romantic comedy, with charming mishaps and a lot of heart. This is my first time working in Australia and I am thrilled to be filming alongside this fantastic cast and crew here in Brisbane.”
Joshua Sasse adds “Having wrapped LOVE IS IN THE AIR a short time ago, it feels great to be stepping back on to set for another Queensland-shot romance. ONE PERFECT MATCH is a heart-warming love story, and Merritt and I are having a lot of fun with the team.”
Director Jo-Anne Brechin said “I was immediately taken with the charming character dynamic in this story. ONE PERFECT MATCH will be a concoction of high-stakes, mistakes and of course romance, and I’m excited to bring this film to life for audiences to enjoy.”
Nicely Entertainment CEO Vanessa Shapiro comments “We love the production quality Jaggi Entertainment deliver and we are thrilled to be working on this new romance movie shooting in beautiful Brisbane!”
