FORESHADOW tells the story of Jesse Milton (Justin Burford) who is living the high life – money, surf and a never-ending supply of hot dates – until he discovers his latest blonde bombshell dead. When the coroner rules out foul play and the police close their investigation, Jesse decides to go after the killer himself.
The film was written by Movierockets’ CEO Kris Lippert, and will be directed by highly respected international filmmaker, Carmelo Musca.
While many know him as the frontman of pop rock band End of Fashion, Burford is by no means new to acting. Most recently, he toured in the lead role of Rock of Ages earning him five-star rave reviews, a Helpmann Award nomination and a Broadway Australia Award for Best Lead Actor in a Musical.
“I am so excited to be involved in this project, and as an actor, I’m really looking forward to the challenges it brings. That my first feature role will be shot in my home town is a huge bonus,” said Burford.
Since graduating from NIDA in 1998, Pollard has appeared in many Australian television series including Water Rats, Home and Away, All Saints, Wildside, Double Trouble, Packed to the Rafters, Underbelly 2, East West 101, Sea Patrol and Rescue Special Ops. However it was his six years on the internationally acclaimed television series McLeod’s Daughters that secured him a place in the hearts and minds of millions.
“The supernatural thriller is one of my favourite genres and the chance to play a demon wrestling cop was impossible to turn down!” said Pollard.
