David Argue has rediscovered his passion for acting after playing an Australian astronaut in Astro Loco, the debut feature from writer-director Aaron McLoughlin. The actor who made his name in the 1980s classics Gallipoli, BMX Bandits and Razorback, shot the sci-fi comedy at Rmit University.s studios in Melbourne after taking a self-imposed break .

Explaining the hiatus, he tells If, .On a couple of projects I felt I was not treated the right way, or the film was shafted..

Astro Loco follows four misfit astronauts who discover during their mission they have been given one-way tickets and they.re not going home.

.When Aaron sent me the treatment I thought, .That.s right out there,. a bit like Red Dwarf,. Argue says. .My character Lucien is quite angry, he.s not the full astronaut..

The actor thoroughly enjoyed the shoot, observing, .It was an awakening, my reconnection with the film business. »
