True History of the Kelly Gang filming July

Variety reports that filming will take place in Victoria this July

“True History of the Kelly Gang” is a coming-of-age tale charting the rise and fall of the Australian rebel who swore to wreak vengeance and havoc on the British Empire. MacKay will star as the notorious bush ranger Ned Kelly and will depict the colonial badlands of Australia. Nurtured by another notorious bush ranger, Harry Power (Crowe), and fueled by the arrest of his mother, Kelly recruits a wild bunch of warriors to plot a rebellion.

Tanja Meissner, head of sales at Memento, said that “the scope and ambition of the project convinced us immediately, it’s the perfect acquisition – a film which will not indulge in period or genre but be a burst of energy, buzzing with electricity, loud, brash and full of color.”

Joel Edgerton previews Boy Erased at CinemaCon

Source: IndieWire

In opening scene shown, Jared (played by Lucas Hedges) stands in his kitchen, apologizing to his distressed parents for breaking up with his girlfriend and being attracted to men. Jared seems to be a well-rounded kid with a bright future — he’s on the basketball team, works at a car dealership, and attends church. Still, his father gives him an ultimatum: attend gay conversion therapy, or move out. Jared chooses the former.

“I’m a very anxious and nervous actor, so I tend to get very paranoid and afraid of scenes before we film them,” said the 21-year-old, an American on set with Aussies who put him at ease. “I have several memories of Nicole where I just forgot everything, forgot everything about where I was, just looking at her. I’m just like, ‘What’s going on here?’ But not even like, ‘It’s Nicole Kidman.’ She’s my mom, and everything about her centered me…It’s the same with Russell.”

Boy Erased is set to be released September 28 in the U.S.

John Oliver buys Crowe memorabilia for Blockbuster in Alaska

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anchorage’s last Blockbuster getting the Crowe memorabilia

Excerpt:

The store manager has been swamped with media attention from beyond Alaska. He said he recorded radio interviews for stations in Australia, where Crowe hails from, and New Zealand.

The notoriety hasn’t yet led to a noticeable increase in customer traffic at the DeBarr Road store, Daymude said. But he thinks it will eventually.

“Oh yeah, when we get the stuff in the display, lots of people will want to come in and take a look at it.”

Daymude doesn’t yet know when the memorabilia is coming or how it will get to Anchorage. But he does plan to put it in glass display cases.

“The last thing we need is someone running around with a jockstrap on their head,” he said.
