I’m delighted to share the trailer for the gorgeous-looking new film, The Dressmaker – the latest offering from indomitable Aussie producer, Sue Maslin (Japanese Story, Road to Nhill). We’re fortunate to have Sue as an Executive Producer on our “romantic comedy with a twist” The Last Resort, which is being packaged for a 2016 shoot in Australia.
Jocelyn Moorhouse (director of How to make an American Quilt and many others; producer of Muriel’s Wedding) directed and wrote the screenplay, based on the best-selling Rosalie Ham novel. The Dressmaker stars Kate Winslet, Liam Hemsworth, Judy Davis, Hugo Weaving, Sarah Snook, Kerry Fox and Rebecca Gibney and is being distributed by Universal Pictures.
Look out for it from October 2015!
Sales and distribution guru, Stacey Parks, of Film Specific will be representing The Last Resort at the European Film Market in Berlin later this month (February 5 – 13). Stacey has recently come on board the “unconventional rom-com” as Executive Producer, joining Australian co-producer, Lindy Taylor. Stacey brings many years of international sales and distribution expertise to the project and her involvement has already opened doors which are paying dividends. Lindy has many years of production and development experience in Australia and the UK. We’re very excited to have them both on board. We’re looking forward to making an announcement very soon about an Australian executive producer who’ll be joining our growing team.
