Spartacus‘s Dustin Clare to star in earthquake drama Sunday

Dustin Clare, terrific in “Underbelly” and currently impressing as Gannicuson “Spartacus”, is lending his muscle to “Sunday”, a new drama that begins principal photography today in Christchurch.

Clare and Camille Keenan (“30 Days of Night”) star in the film, which will be set in the hurting, earthquake-ravaged Christchurch community.

Here’s the synopsis :

Eve and Charlie are having a baby. The only problem is, they’re not together. After years of history and months of separation Charlie and Eve have one day to face each other and find their own way forward. Set in the earth quake ravaged city of Christchurch, New Zealand, SUNDAY is a story like the city, one of past devastation and a chance at rebuilding.

Director, producer and writer Michelle Joy Lloyd says, “While the film’s backdrop is a broken Christchurch city, there is a strong theme of hope and rebuilding. We want to shoot many of Christchurch’s undamaged areas, and attractions, and aim to showcase Christchurch as a city with unique potential. We all feel strongly about creating something special for Christchurch.”
