With the continued stream of Australian stars taking over Hollywood, it is no surprise to find that, those who have been around for a while, are also looking at other areas of the entertainment industry to ply their trade. One such Australian actor doing just that is Joel Edgerton.
It seems that Joel Edgerton is not content with simply becoming a top Hollywood actor but also wants to try his hand at other areas of the movie making process. Joel stars in the upcoming indie movie Felony, which he himself actually wrote the screenplay for.
Felony centres around a decorated police officer who, after a night out and a couple of drinks, ends up killing a cyclist while driving home. However, in a bid to keep his reputation in tact, the police officer decides to hide the incident from his fellow officers. Now, the first image of Joel Edgerton in Felony has been released.
As well as starring Joel Edgerton, Felony also stars Melissa George, Jai Courtney and Tom Wilkinson. Matthew Saville directs Felony, based on Edgerton's screenplay, with the movie premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
