Romper Stomper case study at Content London

Original creator Geoffrey Wright, will be at Content London to discuss the remake of his classic film Romper Stomper, in a one hour case study that tells the story of how the franchise is being refreshed as a six hour series.

A Stan original series, Romper Stomper (6x60’) is a Roadshow Rough Diamond production in association with Screen Australia and Film Victoria. DCD Rights is the international partner.

The drama picks up on Geoffrey Wrights’ 1992 classic film, following a new generation of the activist Right, their anti-fascist counterparts, and three young Muslims caught up in the conflict.

Shot in Super 4K and produced by John Edwards and Dan Edwards, with Geoffrey Wright, creator of the original film which launched Russell Crowe, at the helm, Romper Stomper features a high profile cast as well as a strong line up of newcomers, including David Wenham (Pirates of the Caribbean, Top of the Lake, Lion), Sophie Lowe (The Returned, The Slap), Jacqueline McKenzie (Safe Harbour, The 4400, Mental) and Toby Wallace (INXS: Never Tear Us Apart).
