A trailer for the film Shane has been released today, giving a first look at the highly anticipated film which celebrates the life and career of Shane Warne, one of Australia’s most iconic sports personalities.
Shane features never-before seen interviews with; Lord Ian Botham, Sachin Tendulkar, Allan Border, Mark Taylor, Isa Guha, Ian Chappell, Ed Sheeran, Chris Martin, Shane & his family.
For a guy who grew up thinking only of Australian Rules football, it’s almost an accident that Shane Warne became the greatest cricketer of a generation, and one of the greats of all time. Mastering the difficult art of spin bowling after being kicked out of football for not being a good enough player proved a pivotal choice for 19-year-old Shane – declared unfit and fat, he transformed himself.
When success came, so did fame and adulation, money, and prestige but a betting scandal, drugs scandal, and affairs that cost him his marriage, threatened his career. From the lows of a 12 month ban he rebuilt his cricket, his career, and his reputation as one of the most ferocious competitors on the planet, admired and revered by millions.
Shane will screen for a limited time in Australian cinemas from January 6th, 2022, with tickets now on sale at madmanfilms.com.au/shane. The film will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video from January 25th, 2022.
Directed & produced by David Alrich, Jon Carey & Jackie Munro and produced by Andrew Berg, Brendan Dahill, Sam Griffin & Lindy Dobson, SHANE is an Australian and UK co-production from producing partners EQ Media, Amazon Prime Video, Eclipse entertainment and Gospel. SHANE received principal production investment from Screen Australia. Madman Entertainment are distributing in Australia & New Zealand and Dogwoof are distributing in the UK.
