TV fave headlining new Australian thriller
Internationally recognized actor Costas Mandylor will return to his native Australia to shoot a new untitled thriller – previously known as “Broken” – for acclaimed U.S filmmaker Eric Manchester.
The film, written by Manchester and produced by David Redman (“The Young Poisoner’s Handbook”), is both Manchester’s feature length debut, and the first time he’s worked away from home.
Mandylor is best known for his role on TV fave “Picket Fences”, and has also appeared in films such as “Virtuosity”, “The Doors” and “The Greatest Game of Their Lives”.
Set in Los Angeles, the film poses the question: ‘What if a stranger decides to ruin your life’?
On an ordinary day in Los Angeles, two ordinary men have a random encounter. Daniel is a timid bookseller who struggles through the stress of everyday life. Steve (Mandylor) is a successful real estate agent who has everything going his way a wife, a child, a mistress. It should be a harmless interaction one of billions that occurs just like it every day. But this time is different.
In Steve, Daniel sees the symbol of all that is wrong in his life. Daniel starts to follow Steve and gradually finds his only release is the deliberate destruction of Steve’s life. Steve is shocked. He has no idea what he has done. Steve’s world collapses as he realizes that this unknown enemy will make him live out the remainder of his life as a frightened, hunted man.
When Steve’s private investigator disappears and the threat of violence looms closer, Steve knows he must defend those who are dear to him before they are taken from him.
Australian actor Damien Richardson (“The Hard Word”) will play Daniel.
