Richard Gray, writer/director of the terrific little local offering “Summer Coda”, is dusting off the Nikon for “Blinders”, a sports drama in the vein of “Friday Night Lights”.
The film begins shooting in Torquay, Victoria in February before moving to Boston, Massachusetts to complete filming.
Here’s the specs :
A sports drama with romance, scandal, and the best AFL action sequences ever filmed, BLINDER is in the vein of Friday Night Lights and Bend It Like Beckham, and sees an ex-footballer plagued by turmoil return home after a long absence to clear his name and reignite an old flame.
Richard Gray (writer/director of Summer Coda and the new American thriller Mine Games, now in post-production) is directing the screenplay he co-wrote with Scott Didier and Michele Davis-Gray. Producing with Gray and Didier are former AFL greats Glenn Archer, Adrian Gleeson and Sam Kekovich, alongside Virginia Kay and Bryce Menzies (Malcolm, Death In Brunswick, Two Hands).
Additional cast announcements will follow shortly.
