The Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) has announced their Premier Film Fund films – a selection of new Australian features that make their world premiere at MIFF. Included in this diverse and fantastic line-up is the Simon Pegg vehicle Kill Me Three Times, which will makes its world premiere as the MIFF Centrepiece Gala.
Following the mammoth success of Red Dog (MIFF 2011), director Kriv Stenders’ new film pivots around a charismatic hit-man (Shaun of the Dead‘s Simon Pegg), who acts as the spark that ignites a chain of murder, blackmail and revenge in a small surfing town. Hired by a wealthy gentleman to ‘take care’ of his wife, the assassin gets down to business only to discover there’s more than one person after his target.
Oh, Simon…look how delicious you are!
Sadly, this didn’t end up happening. The film was downgraded to being shown in a couple of rural areas that are harder to get to. :(
