Aussie Western “High Ground” Fills Out Cast

Aussie Western High Ground Fills Out Cast

Playtime has hopped onboard the Stephen Johnson-directed Australian action film “High Ground” starring Simon Baker (“The Mentalist”), Callan Mulvey (“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”), Aaron Pedersen (“Mystery Road”), Caren Pistorius (“Slow West”), Ryan Corr (“Wolf Creek 2”) and Jack Thompson (“Breaker Morant”).

The story follows Gutjuk (Jacob Jr. Nayinggul), a young Aboriginal man orphaned in childhood who is recruited by a former soldier to track down the most dangerous outlaw in the territory – his uncle.

Filming has just begun in the world heritage-listed Kakadu Park and Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory. Chris Anastassiades (“Yolgnu Boy”) wrote the script while Johnson, Maggie Miles, Witiyana Marika, David Jowsey and Greer Simpkin are producing with Screen Australia financially backing the project.
