Mia Wasikowska To Star In “Judy and Punch”

Mia Wasikowska (“Alice in Wonderland,” “Only Lovers Left Alive”) is set to star in Australian actress and writer Mirrah Foulkes’ directorial debut “Judy and Punch” at Vice Media, Screen Australia and Blue Tongue Films.

Dubbed a reimagining of the classic puppet show, the story is set in the fictional town of Seaside and follows two puppeteers – the vain but charismatic Punch and his resilient and talented wife Judy (Wasikowska). The pair attempt to resurrect their show as a means of escaping their decrepit town.

Michele Bennett, Nash Edgerton and Danny Gabai will produce and filming begins in Victoria in April.
