Joel Edgerton (Warrior, upcoming The Great Gatsby) is set to star in the new thriller Felony, which was written by Edgerton and to be directed by Matthew Saville (Noise).
The film is described as follows: “Driving home after a celebration drink with his team after the long waited bust of a major gang, a decorated police officer (Edgerton) runs a young cyclist off the road. As he gives CPR to the child, fellow officers arrive to take his statement. In a split second decision he tells them a lie about the accident which will change all their lives in this edge of your seat thriller.”
Goalpost Pictures Australia producer Rosemary Blight said: “'Felony' is a distinctive project with exceptional creative talent attached, with Joel Edgerton as both actor and writer and Matthew Saville directing. We are thrilled to be working with The Solution on this exciting film.”
“Rising star Joel Edgerton is an extraordinarily gifted actor who brings such depth to all of his performances and we can’t wait to be able to bring that magic to the big screen,” said Wilson. "The heart-pounding story along with the terrific casting will certainly draw attention to this film in Cannes,” she continued.
