Academy Award winner Nicholas Cage is starring in the brand-new Stan Original Film The Surfer and basically, we are more than shooketh!
The Face/Off actor will be leading a predominantly Aussie cast in the psychological thriller that was filmed in Western Australia.
Here’s everything we know.
What is The Surfer about?
When a man returns to Australia to buy back his family home after many years in the U.S. he is humiliated in front of his teenage son by a group of local surfers who claim ownership over the secluded beach of his childhood. Wounded, he defies them and remains at the beach, demanding acceptance. As the conflict escalates he is brought right to the edge of his sanity and his entire identity is thrown into question.
Who is in the cast?
Joining Cage is an impressive Australian ensemble cast including Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck), Nicholas Cassim (Mr Inbetween), Miranda Tapsell (The Dry), Alexander Bertrand (Australian Gangster), Justin Rosniak (Last King of the Cross), Rahel Romahn (Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga), Finn Little (Stan Exclusive Series Yellowstone) and Charlotte Maggi (Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child on Fire).
When will Stan Original Film The Surfer be released?
At the time of publication, filming on the brand-new flick has only just wrapped, so we don’t have a release date just yet?
Where was it filmed?
As mentioned previously, The Surfer was filmed in WA — but not just anywhere in the Western State.
The “intensely unnerving feature film” was shot in one location, in Yallingup in Western Australia, known for its iconic beaches.
Is there a trailer?
Not yet! But as soon as we get one, we’ll update you!
