Susan Prior ("Puberty Blues"), Gillian Jones ("Packed to the Rafters") and David Field ("Chopper") have all joined the cast of "Animal Kingdom" direct David Michod's near future dystopian thriller "The Rover".

Set in Australia twenty years from now, Guy Pearce plays a man who has left every semblance of human kindness behind him. When his final possession, his car, is stolen by a gang of dangerous American criminals, he sets out to track them down.

He soon kidnaps the naive simpleton of the gang (Robert Pattinson), the brother of one of the key members (Scoot McNairy). Anthony Hayes also stars.

A seven-week shoot commenced last week in regional South Australia.
