Hugo Weaving Signs on to star in ‘Mystery Road’

Hugo WeavingHugo Weaving is going to Australia. Hugo Weaving continues to switch up big blockbusters and smaller minded fare, and this time he’s headed to Australia to star in “Mystery Road.” Though he’s not the star of this one. Aaron Pedersen will lead for Ivan Sen (Toomelah), playing a cop brought back to his Outback hometown when a teenager is killed under mysterious circumstances. In accordance with this, Weaving has been placed into the role of “a cop with questionable motives.”


Ryan Kwanten (True Blood) is said to be playing “a pig hunter,” and Jack Thompson (The Good German, The Great Gatsby) has the part of “a pastoralist who’s seen better times.”


Tony Barry, Tasma Walton, Damian Walshe-Howling, David Field, Trisha Whitton and Siobhan Binge also have supporting roles. Filming is already underway and Aussie distribution is locked up, but if you’re an international buyer, give Arclight Films a ring.
