Spurred by my recent interview with Rupert Thomson, a staff writer for Australia’s Limelight magazine sends word of a preliminary website and brief trailer for the film version of The Book of Revelation.
The screenplay has been adapted by playwright Andrew Bovell & director Ana Kokkinos, who both worked on a film a few years earlier called Head On, also an adaptation of a book (Loaded, by Australian novelist Christos Tsiolkas).
An ad in the Sydney Film Festival program reportedly features this quote from festival director Lynden Barber: “A powderkeg of a film … boldly provocative, sharply intelligent, beautifully realised – and utterly original.”
The Book of Revelation will be released later this year. (Thanks for the news, Lee.)
