A marquee cast of Australian male actors will front TEN’s two-part telemovie, Wake in Fright.
Sean Keenan (as recently hinted by TV Tonight), David Wenham, Alex Dimitriades and Gary Sweet will star in the remake of the classic Australian film, joined by actress Caren Pistorius.
Filming begins tomorrow on a script penned by Stephen M. Irwin. The project is produced by Helen Bowden and Kristian Moliere and directed by Kriv Stenders.
Head of Content Beverley McGarvey recently said, “Wake in Fright is more of a psychological thriller.
“There is a market for a high-end, premium, thought-provoking thriller. It’s a miniseries with marquee casting and a very compelling story. So it won’t be action (driven) but gripping for other reasons.”
It will air later this year.
