Bana, Wasikowska Join “Blueback” Cast
Australian actors Mia Wasikowska, Radha Mitchell and Eric Bana are set to lead the Roadshow Films family drama “Blueback” alongside newcomers Ariel Donoghue and Ilsa Fogg.
The newcomers play two different age versions of Abby, a child who befriends a magnificent wild blue groper while diving. When she realizes that the fish is under threat, she takes inspiration from her activist Mum and takes on poachers to save her friend and later the world’s coral reefs.
Liz Alexander, Albert Mwangi and Clarence Ryan also star. Robert Connolly (“The Dry”) is directing from a script he adapted from Tim Winton’s novella of the same name.
Filming will take place in two remote parts of Western Australia – Bremer Bay and Ningaloo Reef.
