Bikie Wars casting

By David Knox on November 6, 2011 / Filed Under News 13

Callan Mulvey, Damian Walshe-Howling and The Slap‘s Anthony Hayes will appear in TEN’s miniseries Bikie Wars: Brothers in Arms.

The six-part drama, on the Milperra massacre of 1984 will be written by Greg Haddrick (Mary Bryant, The Society Murders, Underbelly, Cloudstreet), Roger Simpson (Satisfaction, Stingers, Halifax F.P.) and Jo Martino (Satisfaction, Carla Cametti P.D.). Directed by Peter Andrikidis, it is based on the book by Sandra Harvey and Lindsay Simpson, Brothers in Arms.

TEN’s David Mott has previously said of the Screentime project, “This event mini-series will shine a light on this fascinating tribal culture and its code of honour – as intriguing now as it was when the word Milperra became synonymous with one of our blackest days.”

The series is currently filming in Sydney and it airs next year.

Next question we want answered…. who will play a young Julian Assange in Underground: The Julian Assange Story?

    Pathetic that we seemingly only have 5 actors in Australia!!! Why use the same actors all the time???? Nearly as hilarious as Vince Colosimo appearing on The Great Gatsby!!!
