Filming has commenced in Melbourne on ABC telemovie The Mystery of a Hansom Cab.
The Burberry Entertainment production is an adaptation of the 1886 novel of the same name by Fergus Hume.
The story follows the consequences of a fateful night when two men get into a hansom cab, but only one comes out alive. The book, which was last adapted for the screen in 1926, is often described as the first international crime blockbuster.
The cast includes Shane Jacobson (Beaconsfield), Anna McGahan (Underbelly: Razor), Helen Morse (The Eye of the Storm), Oliver Ackland (The Slap) and John Waters (Offspring).
"We are thrilled to be making this stunning period piece which exquisitely depicts Melbourne in the midst of a 19th century population and economic boom," said Burberry Entertainment chief executive Ewan Burnett in a statement.
The telemovie is written by Glen Dolman, produced by Margot McDonald and directed by Shawn Seet.
