Guy Pearce, Rosamund Pike

Guy Pearce appeared in an eclectic batch of films this year, and 2013 promises more from him. But he’s also locked in a job for later in the year, signing on to co-star with Rosamund Pike in Mark Joffe’s Violet Town.

Matt Cameron wrote the script, based on Steven Carroll’s 2001 novel The Art Of The Engine Driver. Set in 1957, the book’s plot sees a couple attending a neighbour’s New Year’s party, but discovering more than just boozy friends and long countdowns to midnight – buried secrets are unearthed, putting their relationship in jeopardy.

Bryan Brown is attached to co-star, and Joffe plans to have the cameras whirring by the end of summer next year.

Pike’s next appearance will be in Jack Reacher with Tom Cruise, and she’s also part of the cast for Nick Hornby adaptation A Long Way Down. She’s most recently been at work with Simon Pegg and the gang on The World’s End and will reunite with Pegg for Hector And The Search For Happiness.

Pearce will next be seen as Aldrich Killian in Iron Man 3 and also has roles in Like Crazy director Drake Doremus’ next film and the drama Hateship, Friendship along with Kristen Wiig. He’ll also work on David Michod’s The Rover.
