Rachel Ward’s has announced her new film, Palm Beach.
The critically acclaimed director of Beautiful Kate and star of films such as Sharky’s Machine and The Death and Life of Otto Bloom will begin shooting her new film at various locations around Sydney, including the picturesque setting of Palm Beach.
Palm Beach will be drama/comedy about a group of lifelong friends reuniting to celebrate a special birthday, with Sydney’s iconic Palm Beach providing a stunning backdrop for the unfolding drama. The good times roll, with loads of laughter, lavish meals, flowing wine and fantastic music, but slowly tensions mount and deep secrets arise.
Palm Beach will star Bryan Brown, Sam Neill, Greta Scacchi and Jacqueline McKenzie and will be produced by Bryan Brown and Deb Balderstone.
“We are delighted to be embarking on this journey together with our partners,” said producers Balderstone and Brown in a joint statement. “In the capable hands of Rachel Ward, the irresistible world of Palm Beach is set to become a future classic.”
