Clint Morris over at MovieHole recently alerted us to a casting update for Australian actor Costas Mandylor.
Costas Mandylor for Eric Manchester Thriller
Internationally recognized actor Costas Mandylor will return to his native Australia to shoot a new untitled thriller – previously known as “Broken” – for acclaimed U.S filmmaker Eric Manchester.
The film, written by Manchester and produced by David Redman (“The Young Poisoner’s Handbook”), is both Manchester’s feature length debut, and the first time he’s worked away from home.
Mandylor is best known for his role on TV fave “Picket Fences”, and has also appeared in films such as “Virtuosity", “The Doors” and “The Greatest Game of Their Lives”.
Set in Los Angeles, the film poses the question: ‘What if a stranger decides to ruin your life’?
On an ordinary day in Los Angeles, two ordinary men have a random encounter. Daniel is a timid bookseller who struggles through the stress of everyday life. Steve (Mandylor) is a successful real estate agent who has everything going his way a wife, a child, a mistress. It should be a harmless interaction one of billions that occurs just like it every day. But this time is different.
