Well Go USA Picks Up MYSTERY ROAD For North America As Director Ivan Sen Prepares His Chinese Sci-fi LOVELAND
Ivan Sen's modern Western Mystery Road opened the Sydney Film Festival this week to early critical acclaim, and following the premiere came news that Well Go USA has picked up North American rights for an early 2014 release. 

Starring Aaron Pedersen, Hugo Weaving, Jack Thompson and Ryan Kwanten, Mystery Road is the story of an indigenous detective who returns to the Outback to investigate the murder of a young girl. You can watch the trailer below, which clearly channels a No Country For Old Men vibe.

In more recent news, Sen (who has also made the more arthouse efforts Toomelah, Dreamland and Beneath Clouds) is off to China soon to start preparing for Loveland, an "action-romance-science-fiction" according to the SMH, to be shot in China with American and Chinese stars. Very little is known about Loveland at this stage, but what's clear is how deliberately Sen is moving towards mainstream genre filmmaking. And considering his track record this is a very good thing indeed for genre audiences.

    The trailer looked very impressive....an australian crime drama set in the outback, could be something to watch.

    Thanks for the trailer, Mr de Bruyn.
