John Duigan on Careless Love

21 May 2012 10:12 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

It was the global financial crisis that inspired filmmaker John Duigan to write his latest film. The director, whose last Australian film was Sirens back in 1993, found himself reading an increasing number of articles about the impact of the economic downturn and how the rise in the cost of university fees and living expenses had seen a number of students picking up work in the sex industry.

Careless Love is the story of. Linh (Nammi Le), a social anthropology student at Sydney University who secretly works part-time as an escort to help pay her family's mortgage. As her worlds begin to collide, Linh struggles to compartmentalise.

The script spent three years in development, with Duigan keen to fast track the filmmaking process.

"I was attached to a couple of films overseas for four to five years," he says. "And when one of them fell through for the umpteenth time, I »

Caitlin Stasey on Tomorrow sequel: My involvement may be over

26 March 2012 8:47 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Omnilab Media may remain committed to developing the sequel to 2010 blockbuster Tomorrow, When the War Began but the film's star, Caitlin Stasey, feels her involvement in the project is over.

The actress, who won an If Award for her performance as Ellie Linton in the adaptation of the best selling John Marsden novel, believes that if a second film does eventually go ahead, it may not feature the original cast members.

"You always hear things, you always hear that someone's writing it, that someone's putting it together," says Stasey. "Nothing has happened until it happens. Unfortunately for the Tomorrow series, I feel that for the actors that were in the first film, maybe our commitment to it is done."

Tomorrow, When the War Began, which was written and directed by Stuart Beattie, was the highest grossing Australian film of 2010, taking $13.48 million at the box office. In February 2011 it was announced »

Production delayed on Wolf Creek 2 and ABC's Resistance

25 March 2012 10:08 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Production on horror movie sequel Wolf Creek 2 and big-budget children's sci-fi series Resistance has been delayed, leaving the South Australian Film Corporation to redistribute the funding allocated to the projects.

Both productions were set to film at the $43 million Adelaide Studios complex, which opened in October 2011, but are now on hold with no set date for commencement.

Wolf Creek 2 was originally slated to begin production in February, with a budget of $13.2 million. However, contractual issues have caused the film to come to a halt.

In December, entrepeneur Geoffrey Edelsten launched legal action against director Greg McLean's production company, Emu Pictures, with the intention of rescinding the investment deed he had signed for the sequel. Edelsten invested $5 million in the picture, but said he would never have done so had he known he was the biggest single private investor. In an affidavit, he wrote that only $300,000 of the »

'The Slap's Essie Davis: 'I don't want to be famous'

21 March 2012 9:34 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Essie Davis has revealed that she doesn't want to be famous. The 42-year-old Australian actress, who played Anouk in acclaimed ABC drama series The Slap and is now appearing as Phryne Fisher in Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, said that she loves her job but likes being anonymous. Davis told The Age: "I never said I wanted to be a movie star. I want to have the great roles that move people profoundly. I want to have the choice and be given the opportunity to play those roles and unfortunately, fame plays a huge part in that. "I'm incredibly ambitious, but I feel I've got a fantastic career and I love the anonymity. I love that no one knows who I am. I don't know if I want to walk down the street and have everyone staring. I think that would be awful. I'm a pretty shy person, really." (more) »

Murder most fashionable: ABC's Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries

21 February 2012 2:27 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Traditionally, the murder mystery genre has been dominated by UK programs. Shows like.Poirot and Midsomer Murders have been consistently popular with Australian audiences.

Every Cloud Productions. new series Miss Fisher.s Murder Mysteries will bring a local take on the genre to the ABC.s lineup.

.We do true crime a lot, but that sort of slightly heightened world of murder mystery . the British do that, we don.t touch it,. says producer Fiona Eagger.

The 13-part series, based on the novels by solicitor Kerry Greenwood, follows the adventures of the Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher . an amateur detective in 1920s Melbourne played by Essie Davis.

.There.s nothing at all like it on Australian television and there.s nothing like this on international television,. says Davis over the phone. .It.s got the murder mystery element, but it.s also got a kooky sense of humour and a crazy recklessness about it. »
