Time Out Melbourne
May 27, 2013
Writers Angus Sampson and Leigh Whannell have recruited music video auteur Tony Mahony (Nick Cave, Paul Kelly) to make his feature directorial debut. Director of Photography is Stefan Duscio (The Turning, Any Questions for Ben) and Production Design is by AFI Award winner Paddy Reardon (Chopper, Japanese Story).
Could this get any more promising? Well yes.
Costume Designer is multiple AFI award winner Cappi Ireland (Animal Kingdom, The Rover), Editor is Andy Canny (The Slap, Underground: The Julian Assange Story). Sampson produces alongside Jane Liscombe, who produced the Cannes Palme d’Or winning short film Cracker Bag and Beaconsfield, while Leigh Whannell (Saw, Insidious) acts as Executive Producer, alongside David Griffiths (The Last Supper) and Michele Bennett (Chopper).
Angus Sampson says of star Hugo Weaving, he’s “one of the world’s finest actors; every syllable he utters quenches one’s aural thirst and to have the compelling John Noble alongside him is truly humbling. Tony Mahony’s taste and visual design is resonant and remarkable. Leigh and I are thrilled to be collaborating with such esteemed filmmakers both in front of and behind the lens.”
