Submissions have started for Russell Crowe’s new action thriller Poker Face. Sydney is set to become Miami for the movie, with the Daily Mail reporting high speed car chases through the Harbour Tunnel and luxurious scenes at the new $140m Crown residences penthouse and Darling are planned. The movie tells the story of a sinister high stakes poker game between childhood friends.
Crowe is directing and starring alongside Wu-Tang Clan frontman and rapper, RZA. Natalie Portman is also rumoured to be circling a role in the production. It’s great to see more of our Aussie stars coming home to make movies and bringing productions with them, boosting the local industry. The movie was originally planned to be filmed in Miami, Florida, however Crowe demanded the film be made in Sydney.
Best of luck to everyone who’s been submitted so far.
