Pic currently stars Alex Williams as Assange along with Anthony LaPaglia and Rachel Griffiths.
Matchbox Pictures is behind the project, with Robert Connolly writing and helming. Pic follows a detective (LaPaglia) who tracks Assange’s activity in Melbourne in the late ’80s and early ’90s, when he led a ring of underground hackers. McAuliffe will play one of Assange’s friends.
McAuliffe, repped by UTA and Alchemy Entertainment, most recently wrapped lensing on “The Great Gatsby.”
