Seriously Red wrapped principal photography back in December 2020. The movie, which is directed by Gracie Otto (Unusual Suspects) stars Krew Boylan (who also wrote the script), Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale and Daniel Webber. It is the first feature for Dollhouse Pictures (formed by Otto, Byrne, Krew, Shannon Murphy and Jessica Carrera).
The musical dramedy follows Red (Boylan), a vivacious and hilarious red-headed woman grappling with high expectations and low self-esteem. Red trades her job in real estate to take up a new career as a Dolly Parton impersonator.
The support cast includes many familiar Aussie faces including Celeste Barber, Thomas Campbell, Jean Kittson, Wayne Blair, Todd Lasance, Sarah Su, Sophia Forrest, and Rarriwuy Hick.
MCTV members have been submitted this week for ‘pick up scenes’. These are minor additional shots used to augment the footage already shot. The film was recently awarded part of $6.5 million production funding from Screen Australia.
This looks like a really fun project to be a part of that could become a major hit and instant classic, not just here but around the world, like Muriel’s Wedding (coincidentally released 27 years ago today!!) or Priscilla.
Best of luck to everyone who has been submitted!
