Director Paul Murphy’s Lowdown Dirty Criminals, a comedy crime caper about two naïve young men searching for a better life, is shooting in Wellington.
Scripted by David Brechin-Smith, the plot follows James Rolleston as Freddy and Toi Whakaari graduate Samuel Austin as Marvin, who believe a life of crime will provide them with the future they are seeking, or in their own words, setting them up with “monies and honeys.”
The ensemble cast includes Robbie Magasiva, Rebecca Gibney and Cohen Holloway (Hunt for the Wilderpeople.)
Robin Murphy and Sadie Wilson are producing for Lowdown Productions, with investment from the New Zealand Film Commission, Avalon Studios, Global Film Solutions and Hells Pizza. Catherine Fitzgerald is the Ep.
Monster Pictures will distribute in Australia and New Zealand. Mpi Media Group is handling international sales.
