Supernatural thriller “Foreshadow” confirmed for Perth

Aussie heartthrobs Myles Pollard and Justin Burford to star in FORESHADOW

Buzz Productions, in partnership with Movierockets Entertainment, today announced that its upcoming supernatural thriller FORESHADOW will be shot in Western Australia in 2013.

FORESHADOW tells the story of Jesse Milton (Justin Burford) who is living the high life – money, surf and a never-ending supply of hot dates – until he discovers his latest blonde bombshell dead.

When the coroner rules out foul play and the police close their investigation, Jesse decides to go after the killer himself.

The film was written by Movierockets’ CEO Kris Lippert, and will be directed by highly respected international filmmaker, Carmelo Musca.

According to Buzz Productions’ CEO Estelle Buzzard, the film features some exciting new talent as well as several established Australian actors.

“We are delighted to announce that ARIA award winning rock star Justin Burford will make his feature film debut as our lovable surfer and playboy, Jesse Milton; while two times Silver Logie nominee and DRIFT star Myles Pollard will be defending justice as Detective Monaghan,” said Buzzard.

“There’s no doubt they’ll make a handsome demon-fighting duo!”

Since graduating from NIDA in 1998, Pollard has appeared in many Australian television series including Water Rats, Home and Away, All Saints, Wildside, Double Trouble, Packed to the Rafters, Underbelly 2, East West 101 and Rescue Special Ops. However it was his six years on the internationally acclaimed television series McLeod’s Daughters that secured him a place in the
hearts and minds of millions.

“The supernatural thriller is one of my favourite genres and the chance to play a demon wrestling cop was impossible to turn down!” said Pollard.

While many know him as the frontman of pop rock band End of Fashion, Burford is by no means new to acting. Most recently, he toured in the lead role of Rock of Ages earning him five-star rave reviews, a Helpmann Award nomination and a Broadway Australia Award for Best Lead Actor in a Musical.

“I am so excited to be involved in this project, and as an actor, I’m really looking forward to the challenges it brings. That my first feature role will be shot in my home town is a huge bonus,” said Burford.

“There is a really talented and committed team working on this film and the energy is contagious. I can’t wait to undergo the physical transformation required for the role, but mostly I’m eager to sink my teeth into a genre that has long been one of my favourites. Bring it on!”

Pollard and Burford will be supported by a stellar cast including Andrea Addison (female lead), Melanie Lyons, Tawni Bryant, Kyle Morrison, Ben Purser, Nic McRobbie, James Hagan, Sam Davenport, Clara Helms and Hannah Price.

Principal photography will commence in and around metropolitan Perth on 4 February 2013.
