Jackie Chan’s ‘Bleeding Steel’ Adds Australian Cast

27 July 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Australian actors Tess Haubrich (“Alien: Covenant”) and Callan Mulvey (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” TV’s “Underbelly”) have joined Jackie Chan in the cast of Chinese-Australian sci-fi thriller “Bleeding Steel.”

The official start of production was announced Thursday at a ceremony at Sydney Opera House involving the state of New South Wales’ acting premier Troy Grant and minister for skills John Barilaro.

Producers repeated the assertion that “Bleeding Steel” is the biggest budget Chinese film ever to shoot in Australia. However, despite repeated inquiries by Variety, the producers refused to disclose any details that might substantiate such a claim — the overall production budget, the proportion that will be spent in Australia or the scale of the subsidies from Australian state and federal sources.

The film, which has actually been shooting in the streets of Sydney for the past few days, is backed by China’s Heyi Pictures and by Village Roadshow Pictures Asia. »

.

Abe Forsythe's black comedy Down Under is set to hit Australian cinemas on August 4.

Distributed by StudioCanal, the film is a black comedy set during the aftermath of the Cronulla riots.

As Forsythe's second feature, it is the story of two carloads of hotheads from both sides of the fight destined to collide..

Sincere, though misguided, intent gives way to farcical ineptitude as this hilarious yet poignant story of ignorance, fear and kebab-cravings unfolds, and what was meant to be a retaliation mission turns into something neither side could have imagined.

During the shoot, Forsythe told If the narrative mined comedy through the heavy drama.

Kris Mrksa

Australian screenwriter Kris Mrksa (Glitch, Janet King, The Slap, Underbelly, The Secret Life of Us) will write a six-part series for BBC Drama..

Requiem will be made by New Pictures (coming off the back of a great success with The Missing, starring Australia's Frances O'Connor) and will consist of six one-hour episodes. The show will be executive produced by Willow Grylls, Elaine Pyke and Charlie Pattinson for New Pictures and Polly Hill for BBC One.

A thriller which flirts with the supernatural, Requiem is the story of a young woman who discovers, in the wake of her mother's death, that everything she thought she knew about herself was a lie.

So: expect a more adult, ambiguous, and female version of Harry Potter.
