Actor Avan Jogia’s feature writing and directing debut Door Mouse has officially wrapped production in Canada. The project, which started Principal Photography on April 12th, stars Hayley Law (CW’s “Riverdale”, Netflix’s “Altered Carbon”) and Keith Powers (The Tomorrow War, Straight Outta Compton). Famke Janssen (Redeeming Love, When They See Us, X-Men) and Donal Logue (The Cloverfield Paradox, Zodiac) are also set.

Door Mouse is a Stylish Neo-Noir Thriller about a woman named Mouse (Hayley Law) who is stuck, in a dead-end job, doing nothing with her life and going nowhere. She works at Mama's Burlesque Club all night, where her boss Mama (Famke Janssen) encourages her to pursue her real passion of making comics. When a friend from work named Doe-Eyes goes missing and the cops do nothing about it, Mouse and her sidekick Ugly (Keith Powers) take it upon themselves to find out what happened to her. What they discover is that corruption runs deep, monsters are real, and that sometimes, justice is meant to be taken into your own hands.


Door Mouse re-teams Jogia and Law with Kyle Mann and Jason Jallet, the producers of their film The New Romantic, which won the SXSW 2018 Special Jury Award. Additional Funding came from Telefilm Canada, Northern Ontario Heritage Fund, and Ontario Creates.

Law was recently announced to return to the hit series this season.


Powers will soon be seen in the sci-fi thriller The Tomorrow War opposite Chris Pratt, from Amazon, Paramount and Skydance, the Netflix feature The Perfect Find starring opposite Gabrielle Union, and On Our Way opposite Micheál Richardson.
