London — Independent UK based distributor DCD Rights has added the much-anticipated new contemporary thriller Romper Stomper and the second season of legal drama Striking Out to its scripted slate ahead of MIPCOM, with key presale deals already signed for both titles. A Stan original series, Romper Stomper (6 x 60’) is a Roadshow Rough Diamond production in association with Screen Australia and Film Victoria.

A high stakes crime drama/political thriller told from multiple points of view, Romper Stomper will debut on Stan in Australia and has now been acquired by SundanceTV Global in a major multiple-territory deal with DCD Rights for Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Dutch-speaking Benelux, Iberia, Latin America, MENA and Sub-Saharan Africa.

 

Thrilling, bold and provocative, the drama picks up on Geoffrey Wrights’ 1992 classic film, following a new generation of the activist Right, their Anti-Fascist counterparts, and three young Muslims caught up in the conflict. Shot in Super 4K and produced by John Edwards and Dan Edwards, with Geoffrey Wright, creator of the original film which launched Russell Crowe, at the helm, Romper Stomper features a high profile cast as well as a strong line up of newcomers, including David Wenham (Pirates of the CaribbeanTop of the LakeLion), Sophie Lowe (The ReturnedThe Slap), Jacqueline McKenzie (Safe HarbourThe 4400Mental) and Toby Wallace (INXS: Never Tear Us Apart).
