OZ THESP TAKES ‘LETTERS’

Gia Carides has closed a deal to star opposite Patrick Swayze in “Letters From a Killer,” which David Car-son will direct for J&M Entertainment from a script by Nicholas Hicks-Beach and Shelley Miller.

Carides, who starred in “Strictly Ballroom” and just was named best actress by the Australian Film Institute for “Paperback Romance,” will play a woman who has traded letters with the character played by Swayze, a convicted killer who’s been cleared and freed from prison. Unfortunately, he’s written a lot of letters to a lot of different women, and some want to take revenge for his philandering pen.

Carides has also agreed to play a cameo in “Primary Colors.” She’s repped by William Morris agent Peter Levine and managed by Robyn Gardiner of Australia-based Gardiner Management.
