News / S.W.A.T. / Television ♦ March 18, 2017

Great news, guys! Alex has signed on for a series regular role for the CBS drama pilot, S.W.A.T., which was inspired by the 2003 film of the same title.

Australian actor Alex Russell has booked a series regular role opposite Shemar Moore in CBS drama pilot S.W.A.T., executive produced by The Shield creator Shawn Ryan, Neal H. Moritz, Justin Lin and Aaron Rahsaan Thomas. Written by Thomas and directed by Lin, S.W.A.T. is described as an intense, action-packed procedural following a locally born and bred S.W.A.T. lieutenant, Daniel ‘Hondo’ Harrelson (Moore), torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he’s tasked to run a highly-trained unit that is the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles. Russell will play Jim Street. Cocky, living on the edge, Street has earned himself a reputation as a loose cannon with no regard for safety – he’s also the newest member of Hondo’s team.

New project alert! Alex is set to star in Sons of Salt,  the story of an ex-con trying to get his life together who is reluctantly drawn into a dangerous world by his pro-surfer brother. This is the first feature film from Five Lip Films, a production company that Alex is a founder of. Their latest project, Picture Wheel, a short film that also stars Alex, is set to premiere at the California Cinequest Festival tomorrow!

O’Donnell also wrote the script for Sons of Salt, which leading man Russell previously described to IF as “a brutal vicious crime drama set in Maroubra over four different time periods.”

The project is currently being financed, with a budget mooted around the $3-4 million mark. O’Donnell tells IF he’s hoping to start shooting in Sydney in the second half of 2017.

Sunny Abberton, who wrote, produced and directed Bra Boys, is attached as an EP alongside Adam Schroeder (The Truman Show, Chronicle).

Jonathan Auf der Heide was previously attached to direct, but stepped away in 2014 to focus on Mongrel, an outback thriller set to star Aden Young and Aaron Pedersen which fell over the following year.

Picture Wheel co-producer (and Stan’s Head of Originals) Rob Gibson is producing Sons of Salt, which previously received development funding from Screen Australia.

Attach / Films / News ♦ February 04, 2017

“Chronicle” star Alex Russell has come on board the sci-fi thriller “Attach” with Chris Gorak directing from his own script.

Adam Schroeder, whose producing credits include “Chronicle” and “Sleepy Hollow,” will produce under his Adam Schroeder Entertainment banner alongside Rob Paris (“The Blackcoat’s Daughter”) of Paris Film. Highland Film Group will handle international sales, and introduce to buyers next week at the Berlin Film Festival. UTA Independent will rep the U.S. rights.

Russell will portray a star athlete who undergoes an experimental surgery that permanently attaches a cutting-edge bionic arm and leg to his body after he loses his own in a car accident. But when he realizes the advanced intelligent prosthetics may have a destructive mind of their own, he begins a desperate fight to save himself and everyone around him.

News / RED / Short Films ♦ September 26, 2016

Painter Del Kathryn Barton’s RED, starring Cate Blanchett, will premiere at the Art Gallery of South Australia next year.

A surrealist short, RED is a “savage tale of female power” inspired by the mating rituals of the red-back spider.

“This brutal chronicle spoke to me of the poetics of female power as an inherent and indeed, elemental force in the universe. By intercutting human protagonists with extraordinary macro footage, RED has evolved into what I now consider to be an uncompromising celebration of female power,” said Barton in a statement.

As well as Blanchett, the film stars Alex Russell and Sydney Dance Company’s Charmene Yap.

“We are thrilled to be part of this brand new commission,” said Art Gallery of South Australia director Nick Mitzevich. “RED will take Del’s career to a new level and to new audiences, and with the support of the Contemporary Collectors the work will also enter the Art Gallery’s collection’.

Presented as part of the 2017 Adelaide Festival, RED will run from January 26 to April 30. Admission is free.
