Around these parts we really dig actor Ryan Kwanten. Well, we dig him in everything but “True Blood,” but that’s only because the show’s runners have had no idea what to do with him for the past three seasons. Either way, he’s got a new flick on its way!
According to Inside Film, Ivan Sen’s thriller Mystery Road has begun filming in the central Queensland town of Winton.
The film stars Aaron Pedersen as detective Jay Swan, who returns home to an Outback town to solve the murder of a teenage Indigenous girl, whose body is found under the trucking route highway out of town. The film also stars Hugo Weaving, Jack Thompson, Ryan Kwanten (pictured), Tony Barry, Tasma Walton, Damian Walshe-Howling, David Field, Robert Mammone and newcomers Trisha Whitton and Siobhan Binge.
Sen, who penned the script, has taken on multiple duties including director, cinematographer and editor. The film reunites him with producer David Jowsey following their collaborations on Toomelah and Dreamland. Mystery Road will be released in Australia by Management of Doubt, a new local distributor, while international sales will be handled by Arclight.
