Filming has commenced in Homebush, NSW on the brand new Stan original film ‘Christmas Ransom’, starring comedian Matt Okine and TV Week Logie Award-winner Miranda Tapsell.
‘Christmas Ransom’ is a riotous comedy-adventure inspired by family favourites such as ‘Home Alone’ and ‘Elf’, packed with heart and hijinks.
When beloved toy store, Harrington and Sons, is hijacked on Christmas Eve by a pair of bumbling criminals and the struggling owner (Okine) held for ransom, a pair of shoplifting kids stumble into the heist, where they are forced to team up with a heavily pregnant security officer (Tapsell) to save Christmas for everyone.
The film will also star Ed Oxenbould, Genevieve Lemon, Bridie McKim, and young stars Evan Stanhope, Tahlia Sturzaker, and Chai Hansen.
Congratulations to everyone from MCTV who has visited set already. Can’t wait for the premiere this festive season on Stan.
