David Wenham, Jacqueline McKenzie, Toby Wallace and Sophie Lowe started production on the new series in
The violent Hando of Russell Crowe from the cult movie, which was most often compared to the brutal Brett Sprague (The Boys), nonetheless caught up with David after a
quarter of a century. Australian director and screenwriter Geoffrey Wright, the creator of "Romper Stomper", took him out to his team,
which is filming the television sequel of the controversial but talented picture of 1992 about a gang of skinheads ignominiously
ruining themselves in the stone jungles of Melbourne.
David's projects continue to
replenish the baggage of Prizes.
On August 26-27, in the picturesque Burg Castle (Solingen, Germany), thousands of cinema fans greeted the eminent guests of the
Medieval Fantasy Convention. The highlight of the program was the trio of legends of the cinematic Middle-earth - Ory the
Dwarf/Adam Brown, Sam the Hobbit / Sean Austin and, of course, the noblest of the people, Prince of Ithilien / David Wenham.
Fantastic entourage, the enthusiasm of fans and the star charm of David turned this meeting in a truly fabulous event. Read more.
“You could understand why all the great success David’s had could take you
down certain paths in life and it hasn’t. The whole way he lives his life and the things he prioritises – he’s an extraordinary father and
a tremendous friend – show how unaffected he is by all that. “Ellipsis” is a really beautiful film which very much reflects David’s
personality. It’s got a combination of affection and mischief and playfulness and heart – all the qualities that make David such a
strong actor. As [the characters] journey through Sydney, you feel the world that he observes and loves; the people he knows, the
places he visits. He really knows this world”.(Robert Connolly, director, screenwriter, producer, friend. "Ellipsis")Here.

"Dust" of the talented director and Oscar-nominee Milcho
Manchevski had opened the Venice Film Festival. It's a cruel, extraordinary, innovative ostern with American scale, Macedonian
coloring and a deep philosophical message. Triumph turned into a tragedy. Politics, stagnation, intrigues almost destroyed the film,
crashing its distribution, leaving this pearl only to true connoisseurs. Years later, the most underrated and most brilliant picture in
David Wenham's career is still waiting for its hour. The hour is inevitable, like progress.
Among the historical characters embodied by David, unconditional leadership retains the character
cast in bronze, a man whom Australians rightfully consider "the father of his nation". Arthur Phillip (1738-1814), the founder of
Sydney, the first European colony on the coast of Australia, was an extraordinary and advanced person in all senses. A brave naval
officer, a talented naval commander, an excellent administrator, just a leader, he possessed, not by the standards of his time,
wideness of mind and a human heart. They helped him lay the cornerstone of a new civilization on a wild, alien and deadly shore.
Fans of the "Banished" still hope for the return of the
David Wenham, Saroo Brierley and his adoptive mother Sue on the set of the film "Lion".
"A Long Way Home" began
with a huge tragedy, and ended with a terrific happy end. The Odyssey of Saroo Brierley, a lost Indian boy who spent 25 years
looking for his real family, is a story about the contrast of the worlds, the strength of the roots, the constructive humanity, on which
civilization stands. David fell in love with it even when it was just a newspaper publication, seeing a powerful potential for the film.
A few years later, this potential was unfolded in all its cinematic power, bringing 6 Oscar nominations to the creators. And
Wenamania is very proud that her favorite actor has become its important part.
