Hunter, Mullan, Wenham Dive In The “Lake”

Holly Hunter, Peter Mullan and David Wenham have joined the cast of Jane Campion’s “Top Of The Lake” seven-part, six-hour miniseries for BBC Two and Sundance Channel says Deadline.

Written by Campion and Gerard Lee (Sweetie) and co-directed by Campion and Garth Davis, the story is set in the remote mountains of New Zealand and follows the disappearance of a five-months pregnant 12-year-old named Tui who was last seen standing chest-deep in a frozen lake.

Investigating detective Robin Griffin (Elisabeth Moss) must lose herself in order to find the missing girl. During the investigation, she collides with Matt Mitcham (Mullan), a local drug lord who is Tui’s father, and a women’s camp guru named G.J (Hunter). The case pushes Robin into a journey of self-discovery.

Emile Sherman, Iain Canning and Philippa Campbell are producing.
