Portia de Rossi (“Arrested Development”), Lucy Fry (“Vampire Academy”), Angus Sampson (“Insidious”), Ben Lawson (“No Strings Attached”), Robyn Butler (TV’s “The Librarians”), stage actress Lucy Durack and acclaimed comedian/actor Hamish Blake are all set to star in the Australian feature comedy “Now Add Honey”.
The story follows Honey Halloway (Lucy Fry), a shining Hollywood teen star returns home to Australia for a short trip and finds her life crumbling into chaos when her mother (Portia de Rossi) is suddenly sent away.
She is soon forced to stay with her aunt Caroline (Robyn Butler) in the suburbs of Melbourne, and her once normal existence is turned upside down and discovers her family is not so normal at all.
Butler penned the script and is producing, while her husband Wayne Hope will direct. The six week shoot began in Melbourne, Victoria today. Gristmill is producing the film, while Roadshow Films is set to distribute locally.
