The TV Movie that is based on Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is gathering some great momentum in talent with Rachel Griffiths and Anthony LaPaglia signing on. Alex Williams, the newest member of the cast, is playing Assange and local legend Robert Connelly (The Slap, Balibo) is directing. LaPaglia plays Detective Ken Roberts who was determined to work out Assange’s dealings during the 1980’s-1990’s and his involvement in a computer hacking ring. Tony Ayres and Helen Bowden are producing under their Matchbox Pictures banner and cameras roll from April 16, 2012.
UNDERGROUND will air on CHANNEL TEN in AUSTRALIA in late 2012.
