Still, Release Plans for Strahovski film

Still, Release Plans for Strahovski film
Clint

”Matching Jack”, a new film starring “Chuck” hottie Yvonne Strahovski, will hold its World Premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival (22 July – 8 August) ahead of a national release on 30 September by Twentieth Century Fox.

“Jack” is the first film in over a decade for Australian filmmakers Nadia Tass and David Parker. The film is based around Marisa (Jacinda Barrett) and her son, Jack (Tom Russell). Life seems idyllic for the suburban Melbourne family until Jack suddenly winds up in hospital. Marisa tries to find her husband, David (Richard Roxburgh) who is in fact in the next suburb apparently planning to leave Marisa for his current mistress, Veronica (Yvonne Strahovski) with his phone off and not a care in the world.

Jack is diagnosed with Leukaemia and when David finally surfaces he learns that he is the key to Jack’s survival. If a matching bone marrow donor can’t be found on the world register, maybe there is some child of David’s out there from one of his flings?

Yvonne talks about Matching Jack: “I love dramas, I am drawn to tragic stories, and this [really] encompasses tragedy. It is always fun playing the other woman and trying to make her likable.”

On working with Nadia Tass: “Nadia is such an actor’s director, and she has the upmost respect for the actor’s process, and I think that is so rare to find, especially when I have come from with two years on a US television show. I feel very blessed to be working with Nadia.”

On working with co-star Richard Roxburgh: “Most of my scenes are with Richard [and] he is such a pro… his cheeky attitude on set has been fun as it is quiet a morbid script…he makes everyone laugh and the crew adores him.”
