Logie nominated Perth actor Ben Mortley of McLeods Daughters is thrilled to be taking the lead role of character Leon Murphy (Pictured right). "I've been telling people that being in this film is like getting to play inside an archetypal young man's dream - of being a cowboy, riding horses, and having shoot outs with bad guys", explains Mortley.
Transporting Leon Murphy, convicted criminal is Captain Jack Dalton played by A Country Practice star, Michael Muntz. The opening and closing scenes of the film will take place at Watpows Farm in Kukerin, whilst the rest of the film will predominately be captured in the Shires of Yalgoo and Leonora.
Capturing the stunning landscapes of WA along side actor and filmmaker Michael Muntz is director Jordon Prince-Wright. Prince-Wright is currently achieving international festival success for his short feature film Red Dirt which premiered in Perth and Yalgoo in 2015.
To do the script justice Prince-Wright knows that the appropriate funding is paramount. In addition, all in-kind contributions are greatly appreciated with the opportunity for your name/business to be added to the credits! If you can help with any of the below please contact Jordan Prince-Wright on firstname.lastname@example.org.
