Dusk For a Hitman | Éric Bruneau on Becoming the Hired Real-Life Assassin Donald Lavoie

Éric Bruneau in Dusk For a Hitman

Donald Lavoie was a notorious assassin in Montreal, Canada, back in the 1970s and reportedly killed at least 15 people for the Dubois Gang. But, one assigned target caused Lavoie to turn on his employers, which brought down a criminal empire.

Actor Éric Bruneau had to transform himself into this stoic, stone-face killer for the crime thriller Dusk For a Hitman.

The film also stars Benoît Gouin (Lac Mystère, Québec-Montréal), Rose-Marie Perreault (Fake Tattoos, Most Wanted), Sylvain Marcel (Aline, Lac Mystère), Simon Landry-Desy (Me Without You, Pharmakon), and Joakim Robillard (Underground, Chasse-Galerie).

Here is the official synopsis:

Hitman, Donald Lavoie faces an impossible order: eliminate his own family for mob boss Claude Dubois. Detectives offer him a way out by making him their informant, putting Donald in a perilous balancing act between loyalty and survival.
