International Trailer: “True History of the Kelly Gang”

International Trailer True History Of The Kelly Gang

The story of Australian outlaw Ned Kelly has been told so many times, with actors ranging from Mick Jagger to Heath Ledger in the role, that yet another straightforward adaptation of the story holds little interest.

Cue “Snowtown,” “Macbeth” and “Assassin’s Creed” helmer Justin Kurzel who, teaming with screenwriter Shaun Grant, has adapted Peter Carey’s award-winning novel “True History of the Kelly Gang” into a whole different take on the legend – reinventing him as a punk rock robber who is devoutly followed, is hated by the establishment and lives a chaotic life on the frontier.

Premiering at Toronto earlier this year to good reviews, the film stars George MacKay and Orlando Schwerdt as Ned at different ages along with Russell Crowe, Nicholas Hoult, Essie Davis, Thomasin McKenzie, and Charlie Hunnam.

Mememto Films International will release the film in the UK and Irish cinemas on February 28th 2020 and have just released the international trailer below.
