Crowe, Colette, Schreiber Get “Unplugged”

Russell Crowe, Toni Colette, Anthony LaPaglia and Liev Schreiber are amongst the helmers of segments of “Sydney Unplugged”, a new anthology feature in the vein of “Paris je t’aime” and “New York I Love You” reports SMH.

Tropfest organiser John Polson used last night’s annual short film celebration to announce the project which will consist of twelve segments, each with different helmers and set around different parts of the Australian city. Along with those four above will be shorts by filmmakers like Alex Proyas (“I, Robot”), David Michod (“Animal Kingdom”), Rachel Ward (“Beautiful Kate”), Ray Lawrence (“Lantana”), Kieran Darcy-Smith (“Wish You Were Here”), John Curran (“The Painted Veil”) and Ivan Sen (“Toomelah”),

Polson and Gary Hamilton are producing the film which will be shot in the second half of the year.
