The team behind new Australian film The Legend of Ben Hall are calling on supporters to help raise $75,000 to start shooting new scenes required for the feature length version of their film.
Producers of the film hope that The Legend of Ben Hall will be the first in a “proposed trilogy of bushranger feature films, that will see many cast members reprising their roles as well as introducing all-new stories and characters.”

THE SYNOPSIS: Australia, 1864. Alone and hunted, the reluctant outlaw Ben Hall is drawn back into bushranging by the reappearance of his old friend John Gilbert. Reforming the gang and taking on a new gang member John Dunn, the trio soon become the most wanted men in Australian history.
As the law closes in around them, Ben Hall seeks to make peace with his tortured past and estranged family. However, a trusted friend has sold the gang out for the huge reward, and the police set a cunning trap.
As the mist rises from the fields on the cold morning of May 5th 1865, Ben Hall emerges from his campsite… and walks into legend forever.
