An insider's view of The Book Thief

2 March 2014 12:18 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Michael Petroni is understandably chuffed by the B.O. results of The Book Thief, his adaptation of the Marcus Zusak novel- particularly in Australia. Yet he wonders how the WWII drama might have turned out if he hadn.t been asked to do multiple rewrites by the studio, Fox 2000, and the director, Downton Abbey.s Brian Percival. .My major disappointment with the rewrites was that they took out most of the magic realism that features in the book,. said Petroni, who is editing the Aussie psychological thriller Backtrack, the first film he.s directed since 2002.s Till Human Voices Wake Us. .Fox wanted a film that would appeal to families, not just adults, and Brian wanted to tell more of a straight, dramatic tale..

He is quick to add, "I am very proud of the film, people come up to me and tell me how much they loved it. On »

Brody, Neill take the Backtrack

13 January 2014 12:43 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Adrien Brody, Sam Neill, Bruce Spence, Robin McLeavy and Anna Lise Phillips are shooting Backtrack, a psychological thriller from writer-director Michael Petroni. Jamie Hilton, who is producing with Petroni, his partner in See Pictures, and Antonia Barnard, says the project was relatively easy to finance. That was due primarily to how sales agents, distributors and other financiers responded to Petroni.s screenplay, the saga of psychologist Peter Bowers who discovers his patients are the ghosts of people who died in an accident 20 years earlier. Another advantage during the financing was that Petroni.s status as a writer was rising as The Book Thief, his adaptation of the Markus Zusak novel, started shooting in Germany. Screen Australia, UK-based sales agent Bankside and Oz distributor Madman Entertainment came on board before Brody, an Oscar winner for The Pianist and who starred in Midnight in Paris and The Brothers Bloom, was attached. The other participants are Screen Nsw, »

Sam Neill & Adrien Brody Will Backtrack

13 January 2014 8:32 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Some moves, especially the really big ones, like to give you so much advance notice that it feels like you’re seeing imagery and trailers for decades before they arrive. Other, smaller titles usually prefer to sneak into production then put out a release. Such is the case with Australian thriller Backtrack, which is now shooting, and stars Sam Neill and Adrien Brody.Writer-director Michael Petroni has crafted a film that finds a psychologist's life thrown into chaos when he learns that his patients are all ghosts from an accident that occurred 20 years previously. Serious shades of The Sixth Sense, then, from a film that also stars Bruce Spence, Robin McLeavy, Jenni Baird and Anna Lise Phillips. Though that reference is not a big spoiler: it’s merely the jumping off point for the plot. (If his patients are ghosts, who's been paying their bills?)Petroni, who directed 2002’s Till Human Voices Wake Us, »
