‘UPRIGHT’ – A landmark new series starring Tim!

by Shell 23rd Jul 2018 | 3 comments

UPRIGHT

Tim’s signed a major production deal with Foxtel and today, along with Screen Australia, they announced his starring role in UPRIGHT, a landmark co-production with Sky UK. He’s co-producing, writing the music and co-writing the script for the eight-part series, sure to resonate with Australian and international viewers.

Tim: “From the moment I heard about the idea for UPRIGHT, I knew it was the show I’d been waiting to make. I like stories that make me laugh and think and cry, I adore the landscapes of outback Australia, and I love music, and homecomings, and characters full of flaws. It’s awesome to be writing with this extraordinary team, and I’m looking forward to acting alongside Milly Alcock, who I think is a really special talent.”

There’s a stellar team behind UPRIGHT, including the creator Chris Taylor (The Chaser) with whom Tim is writing the series alongside award-winning writer-actors Kate Mulvany (Fighting Season, Jasper Jones stage play) and Leon Ford (Offspring, No Activity). The Director is Matthew Saville (Please Like Me). Tim is Executive Producer with Penny Win and Helen Bowden. Producers are Lingo Pictures’ Jason Stephens, Chris Taylor and Melissa Kelly (Hounds of Love).

Friar Tuck Tim_Minchin

Directed by Otto Bathurst and filmed in Croatia and Hungary, Robin Hood is a gritty new take on the classic story.

Taron Egerton will play Robin Hood, with Jamie Foxx as Little John, Eve Hewson as Maid Marian, Jamie Dornan as Will Scarlet and Ben Mendelsohn as Sheriff of Nottingham.

IMDb: A war-hardened Crusader and his Moorish commander mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a timeless romance.

The film hits movie theatres November 2018.

Andrew Denton's Interview. Picture Belinda Pratten.

Tim’ll be sitting down with Andrew Denton on Channel 7’s “Interview” next Tuesday 3rd July at 8:45pm.

This is the second time Tim’s been interviewed by Andrew, the first being back in 2008. Tune in to see what they talk about after an eventful 10 year interval. There’s a piano so it’s a safe bet that Tim will be hitting the keys.

Alternatively, you can watch the programme live online here and you’ll be able to catch-up on 7Plus here, shortly after it airs.
