Director Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) has a new film in the works called Kill Me Three Times. He hasn’t started shooting yet, but Cargo (its sales, financing and production company) is pre-selling the rights at Cannes. It will star Alice Braga (pictured above; I Am Legend, Predators), Abbie Cornish (Limitless), Ben Mendelsohn (Killing Them Softly) and Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom). Shooting is set to begin near the end of the year in Australia.
The film “takes place in Eagle’s Nest, an Australian surfing town where a young woman is the thread that binds three tales of murder, blackmail and revenge.”
And McLean certainly sounds enthused. Per Screen Daily, “From the moment Larry [producer Laurence Malkin] sent me the script, to the moment I breathlessly put it down with the words, ‘I must make this movie’ pounding through my mind, the project has become an obsession. To have such great actors on board is a dream come true.”
If you like Wolf Creek you should probably be excited too.
