True Bloody Superhero!

“True Blood” star Ryan Kwanten will star in a “fresh, highly-original romantic comedy” titled “Griff the Invisible”.

Now filming in Sydney, it’s the debut feature film writer / director Leon Ford.

“It is a super hero movie and it is a comedy, but at its core it’s a simple love story about two very unique individuals finding each other and giving the other the strength to be what they want to be,” said director Leon Ford from set.

Kwanten, who plays Jason Stackhouse on the hit cable series, plays the lead character of Griff, while Maeve Dermody (“Beautiful Kate”), Patrick Brammall and Toby Schmitz co-star.

The film is produced by Nicole O’Donohue and executive producers are Jan Chapman (‘’The Piano’’) and Scott Meek (“Velvet Goldmine”).

Transmission Films (“Balibo”, “Charlie & Boots”, “Prime Mover”) will distribute.

Speaking about his character, Ryan Kwanten said, “By day, Griff works in an office. By night, he is a superhero – or is he? It was this question that attracted me to the role. Griff is such an original and boundless character to play.

“Every boy dreams of being a superhero and I’ve accepted my mission to bring this one to life.”

The pic is expected to release nationally in late 2010.
