Blinder to sign up new distributor, first trailer released

Australian rules football drama Blinder is searching for a new distributor.
A theatrical release was originally planned for January 24 but a clash with another planned release by independent distributor Jump Street Films spurred the change, according to director Richard Gray.
The $5 million film will now be screened for distributors in the next fortnight ahead of a planned wide theatrical release next year. Gray said keeping the release date within the window between the Australian Open in January and the start of the AFL main season was crucial with executive producers and former AFL greats Glenn Archer and Sam Keckovich, and legendary actor Jack Thompson, also lined up to do "a mountain of publicity".
The film also stars Josh Helman (Animal Kingdom, The Pacific), Oliver Ackland (The Slap, Cloudstreet), Rose McIver (The Lovely Bones), Steve Bisley (Red Hill), Anna Hutchison (Wild Boys), Zoe Carides (Death In Brunswick), Bob Morley (Road Train) and Angus Sampson (Insidious).
The story centres on 18-year-old Tom (Ackland) from Torquay in Victoria who, having fled Australia on the back of a football scandal that ended his career, returns home to clear his name and reignite an old flame.
Gray (Summer Coda, Mine Games) also co-wrote the screenplay with Scott Didier and Michele Gray.
