Yeah, let Luc Besson have his drug mule movie
. No problem. But the one I really want to see is The Mule
, an upcoming Australian effort from the producer of Chopper
with first timer Tony Mahony directing from a script by Leigh Whannel and Angus Sampson. Whannel you know from his collaborations with James Wan on Saw
, while Sampson is best known as an actor (Insidious
, 100 Bloody Acres
) and is also wearing a few other hats in this one.
But while Sampson may very well end up with an acting part in this one it most certainly will not be as the lead, a part which Deadline reports has just gone to Hugo Weaving
, who is typically excellent in these sorts of murky morality stories.
Very little is being said about plot at this point beyond that the story revolves around a drug mule (Weaving) captured by police and the fallout surrounding that event. But with this particular creative team around it, that's all I really need to know.
