â€œTrue Bloodâ€ star Ryan Kwanten will star in a â€œfresh, highly-original romantic comedyâ€ titled â€œGriff the Invisibleâ€.
Now filming in Sydney, itâ€™s the debut feature film writer / director Leon Ford.
â€œIt is a super hero movie and it is a comedy, but at its core itâ€™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,â€ 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 (â€œBeautiful Kateâ€), Patrick Brammall and Toby Schmitz co-star.
The film is produced by Nicole Oâ€™Donohue and executive producers are Jan Chapman (â€˜â€™The Pianoâ€™â€™) and Scott Meek (â€œVelvet Goldmineâ€).
Transmission Films (â€œBaliboâ€, â€œCharlie & Bootsâ€, â€œPrime Moverâ€) will distribute.
Speaking about his character, Ryan Kwanten said, â€œBy 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.
â€œEvery boy dreams of being a superhero and Iâ€™ve accepted my mission to bring this one to life.â€
The pic is expected to release nationally in late 2010.
