The Melbourne International Film Festival gave us a sneak peek at its upcoming schedule and we find out that David has a cameo in Nash Edgerton’s upcoming television series Mr Inbetween. MIFF will showcase all 6 episodes prior to it being released on FOXTEL later this year:
Nash Edgerton brings The Magician’s charismatic killer-for-hire Ray Shoesmith back to our screens in his TV series directorial debut. MIFF presents all six episodes.
Ray Shoesmith began life in Scott Ryan’s blackly comic mockumentary The Magician (MIFF 2005), about a deadpan hitman being trailed by an aspiring documentarian. Edgerton (Gringo, The Square, and MIFF 2007 short film Spider) was a producer and editor on that film but for this new six-part series he’s stepped behind the camera to delve further into Ray’s life as he attempts to juggle his bloody profession with his love life and being a good dad, brother and friend. Ryan returns as scriptwriter and star, alongside Justin Rosniak, Brooke Satchwell, Damon Herriman and newcomer Chika Yasumura – Edgerton’s real-life stepdaughter. Kriv Stenders and David Michôd also cameo [my emphasis]
I do miss David’s cameos in his own films. Wonder if he’ll do a walk on for The King #fingerscrossed.
The Festival runs from 2 to 19 August 2018 and its full programme will be released on 10 July 2018. I will update this post with screening details.
