Teresa Palmer Says Nothing
Joel Edgerton equally silent
She's had practice at keeping schtum; denying that she's anything to do with Mad Max: Fury Road while everyone else is still saying she's attached. Appropriate then that Teresa Palmer's next role looks set to be in Say Nothing.
She'll co-star with Joel Edgerton in a story about two couples who take an ill-fated trip to South East Asia. Sounds like a Turistas or a Hostel, but we're being told at the moment that it's a drama, so organ farming and pay-per-murder don't seem to be on the cards.
The film's being set up by the Blue Tongue production company that belongs to Edgerton and his brother Nash. Nash will be relieving the tension of producing by doing some stunt-work, as he did on the Star Wars prequels (where Joel was playing Owen Lars), Knight and Day and I Am Number Four. The latter also stars Palmer (the two are "an item") but this is the first time they've worked together. "It'll be nice," Palmer says.
The Australian actor Kieran Darcy-Smith co-wrote the film and will be making his debut behind the camera. Shooting is set to start in December.
