The Legend of Ben Hall set for December release


The Legend of Ben Hall.

Matthew Holmes’s The Legend of Ben Hall will get a national theatrical release from December 1, courtesy of Pinnacle Films.

The biopic tells the story of one of the most wanted men in Australian outlaw history. After years on the run in the outback, Ben Hall and his infamous band of outlaws decide to ride again in order to steal enough cash and gold so they can flee to America and greener pastures.

The reunited gang prove unstoppable until one fateful day, when holding up a mail coach, a police sergeant is shot dead. With the bounty on their heads growing and nowhere to go, Ben and his gang must now fight to the bitter end.

The Legend of Ben Hall, shot across regional New South Wales and Victoria, stars Jack Martin, Jamie Coffa (Gallipoli, The Lucifer King), William Lee, Joanne Dobbin (Neighbours, Swimming Upstream) and Callan McAullife (I Am Number Four, Cloudstreet, The Great Gatsby, Packed To The Rafters). 

Holmes (Twin Rivers) wrote, directed and produced the film. Russell Cunningham, Jessica Pearce and Michael Favelle produced, while Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) and Ross Angelo were the executive producers.

  1. I have many friends on this project and want to congratulate everyone involved. I do understand first hand what a mammoth task it is getting a project together. There is so much behind the scenes things and especially funding. That is why I would like to see more funding available to both male and female who just have a great product. It is often only available to people with a proven track record rather than on substance. Well done Matthew and I will certainly be supporting you at the box office. I would like to see everyone turn up and support Australian productions.

  2. I’m really looking forward to seeing this movie. I’ve been following the progress and l’m glad the wait is nearly over.

  3. My brothers and I grew up reading Wild Colonial Boys & immersed in the world of Ben Hall TV series. I played ‘Ben Hall vs the chaps’ with my younger brother (who always managed to get shot). Been waiting for this a long time! Looking forward to it.

  4. Ben Hall was my great grandfather William Hall’s brother, my great great uncle. Can’t wait to see the movie. Is it still going to premiere in Forbes?

  5. This guy organising fake traffic to raise this non article in popularity??? Lol. For such a short piece that reveals nothing, it makes no sense.
