NEW YORK — Aussie commercials director David Denneen will begin lensing his first feature film “Guests” next week in Sydney, with Hollywood’s Dan Halstead exec producing the psychological thriller.
Film, originally titled “Power Surge,” is about two young lovers on the run from the law who take an agoraphobic hostage in his own house. Aussie scribe Dave Warner (“Cut,” “Garage Days”) penned the script.
Former Calvin Klein underwear model Travis Fimmel and Stephen Moyer (“Quills”) are attached to star, along with Teresa Palmer, who also will be seen in the upcoming “December Boys.”
Film, backed by Australia’s Film Finance Corp., comes from Halstead’s Camelot Pictures banner and Film Graphics Entertainment, the drama and animation arm of Denneen’s Film Graphics commercial house.
Producers of “Ghost” are Anna Fawcett, Mark Lazarus and Todd Fellman.
Accent Filmed Entertainment will release the film Down Under.
