‘Sleeping Dogs’ is a new thriller based on E.O. Chirovici’s novel ‘The Book of Mirrors’. It will star Russell Crowe and principal photography is planned to commence in Australia early next year.
The movie centres on former homicide detective Roy Freeman (Crowe), who is undergoing treatment for Alzheimer’s. He is tasked with re-examining a brutal murder case from his past. A death row inmate Roy arrested 10 years prior is now proclaiming his innocence. Intrigued and fighting to regain his memory, Roy enlists his former partner to help him revive the investigation and discover the truth. This time though, things unfold very differently: as he uncovers a tangled web of contradictions and secrets, Roy is forced to face a horrific reality that changes his world forever in the blink of an eye.
The movie has already secured international distribution for the U.K., Australia/New Zealand, Latin America, Spain, Greece, Italy and the Middle East.
Another big movie heading down under…more to come.
