Eddie Izzard is set to star in the comedy “The Call Back” for 20th Century Fox Film Australia. Marion Pilowsky makes her feature directorial debut on the project.
The drama has Izzard as a British actor who previously had a short-lived relationship with a struggling Australian restauranteur (Emily Taheny). She has subsequently settled in with a new partner (Luke McKenzie), but her world is turned upside down when the actor comes back into her life along with his new French girlfriend (Vanessa Guide).
Fox International Productions, Screen Australia and the South Australian Film Corporation are teaming for the project which kicks off filming later this month in Adelaide.
