Director Daniel Roby's journalism thriller Target Number One is finally hitting Canadian theatres, one pandemic and a few rounds of development hell later

Josh Hartnett plays journalist Victor Malarek, an investigative reporter who's forced to re-evaluate his core convictions and maverick methods after the birth of his first child in Target Number One.. When it opened in Quebec and Western Canada theatres July 10, it became the first new movie to open in the country’s cinemas since the pandemic began back in March.

back in 2006, just after the filmmaker was coming off a year of international film-festival travel promoting his well-received debut, the French-language drama While Roby chipped away at the project, he also busied himself with a handful of other productions, including 2018′s French-language hit – but deep down, he always knew the story about Olivier and The Globe and Mail journalist, Victor Malarek, who helped blow the story open would be destined for the screen.

”We didn’t scout to shoot at The Globe, but we scouted as research. We looked at the archives, talked with some of the people who worked with Victor. It was a learning experience. Victor spent so much of his time being truthful to his work that I think it hit a little close to home” for the journalist, Roby recalls.

Feds to match Canadians' donations to Lebanon following deadly explosionThe federal government has announced it will match every donation made by individual Canadians to a coalition of humanitarian organizations to help Lebanon in the aftermath of Tuesday’s deadly explosion. So Canadians can donate with their money & the Federal Govt (Trudeau) will match by spending our money. The corrupt Liberals will steal every single dollar. They like shaking down charities even more than getting kickbacks for government contracts that are never completed or even started. With our own money.
